I was happy to test the Traveler's top, I feel it's just my style. I first made one out of a light weight sweater knit fabric. The light weight cape is good for cool summers or to dress up. the second I made out of a grey french terry fabric, the hood is a grey and pink french terry too. I love my test version of grey Hooded Cape, it's feels so warm and non confinding, this will be my go to for winter.
The Traveler's top can be made from various stretch fabrics.
There is no age limit to dressing the way that makes you feel happy. The Traveler's top is useful and stylish.

I had the privilege of testing the Kristen dress. I wasn't sure I wanted to test the Kristen because I wasn't sure I would wear it. As always, Ann know's best, I am so glad I did test the Kristen. The Kristen is one of the most comfortable, woven dress I have ever worn. I made the dress out of a woven-peach skin fabric, very soft and flowy, easy to sew with. I added the neck and arm ruffles along with a sash.
After making a muslin first, I did have to adjust the bodice by cutting an inch off across the front and back from the underarm. 
Wearing the Kristen dress to a Winery and car show, gave me the feeling as if I was, don't laugh, as if I was wearing a regal dress, like in "Pretty Woman". 

The Kristen is a beautiful and flattering dress that is suitable for all figure types.
Designed with a princess style bodice the Kristen offers cups sizes for
fine-tuning the fit of your garment. Cup Sizes – B, C, D, DD.
Add a choice of ruffles at neckline, center front and armhole
with the added option of a soft flared sleeve, the Kristen
dress will flatter and enhance with its soft and flowing
pleated flared skirt.
