The Mini Wardrobe - the final cut.

Thanks so much to everyone who commented with thoughts about which tops to include in the mini wardrobe.  I've been stewing over it all weekend!  There were some seriously compelling arguments in all directions, but I finally just went with a simple vote and the two knit tops won by a landslide!
So, here is the updated storyboard.
And the final composite.

I will say that this was a seriously tougher decision then I thought it would be!  The fact that the woven top was the more difficult piece to sew has weighed on my mind, and I nearly went with it to replace the printed RTW copy tee, which is a very simple design.  In the end though, not only did the tee get almost twice as many "votes", I just like it better, so in it goes.  I have worn all of these pieces now, and I have to say, I really love them all.  No matter how the contest goes, I totally won, since I got to add all of these wonderful pieces to my closet.  As a bonus, I discovered an unexpected talent for fashion design in my hubby!  Who knew?!
