    Totally amazing! Looks like the skirt has a nice high waist which I love. And those pockets are perfectly done!

    Echo everybody’s praises – great pictures too! Did you have a professional photographer do that for you? You’re a natural at posing too! Btw, tell your mom her broach is gorgeous as well.

      The photos were taken by my fiancé with a point-and-shoot camera. There is nothing “pro” about them :P.

    “Day, after day, there are girls at the office, and men will always be men…”

    What an outstanding execution of a design. It’s fresh and retro (fretro?).

    The color of the fabric, and the knees together…FIVE STARS!!!!!

    such great job! do you have the pocket flap stitched by hand? This jacket has long been part of the “to do” list:-)

    I love this. I’m surprised the patterns are from 2007- I thought you had a cute vintage pattern! Very nicely done :-) also I love your shoes.
