I love what your doing! I just read about you in the NYTimes and this whole project is so cool!


Love it! Some of the looks are even suited for women in their 50"s. Where can you get the dress, I agree you should sell it. Maybe in 2 versions, one as is and one to the knee for the older crowd!I loved them all even tho I went backwards!

Read about you in NYTimes Magazine. Your project is very interesting, even to a grandmother in her 70's. Keep it up. I am recommending viewing to my teens

chrissy tagged this Hot

Sell the dress - we all want one! It is gorgeous and I agree with an option of lengthening it - just to the knee - for us older folks! Great project!

natasha tagged this Cute

I'm a little late in starting to view, but delighted to have found Day #1. Now think of all the variations I have to look forward to...as time goes on...old song, probably known by a few oldsters!

I didn't know about the U.P till mid-August, but being a massive UP fan, soon-to-be owner of the Uniform (I own Feb 25!) and proud owner of several auction items, I had to leave a comment on day #1. Today, on the 362nd day of U.P, I'd like to say, I love that uniform, tights and shoes. And I'm sure you're going to rock this project ;)
