What an absolutely gorgeous outfit, Kristen!!! It suits you perfectly (no pun intended) and I love the style. Congratulations on a very versatile wardrobe staple! :)


This is a lovely suit, it fits you perfectly and is full of gorgeous details. What a great day for a photo shoot too!

Perfectly stunning in every way. This showcases some excellent workmanship!!! The suit is so classy, the snowy background is awesome, and you are one pretty lady. :) Oh, and congratulations on joining the "use multiple patterns on one outfit" club. ;) I'm afraid it's rare when I DON'T do that! I noticed your heels and corsage too...such nice additions. PS. A long overdue email is coming to you soon!!!

Lovely job!! I love the combination of sewing patterns you used. I gave in and bought some holiday fabric, couldn't resist the sale at Joanns! :p
Wishing you a very Happy New Year from New England!!


Kristen, that is amazing. Your workmanship is wonderful and you have such a creative eye. The photos are stunning. Thanks for featuring my corsage. It was a delight to make.

Gina White

Oh Kristen! I am loving everything about this suit! All the fun detailing, buttons, pleats, the corsage, your new beret, the gloves the stole....oh and I can't forget the umbrella! You are perfection!!!

Thanks to all of you, ladies! Your comments are so encouraging for this aspiring seamstress. :-)


Well I just might have to use that hat pattern the next time we come out and visit you! Love the suit too. Great job. And to think there was a time when someone told me they never wanted to sew.

Kristen Stoltzfus Clay

Very funny, Anna! :-)

It's hard to believe I used to hate sewing. I guess that's why you "never say never"!

Esther Glick

Beautiful all around!

Patsy Lichtenberger

Kristen, I am so proud of you and your are a beautiful model with the perfect suit. I also love the pleats in the back of the skirt. Aunt Patsy
