A Successful Project

What do you class as a successful project?  Being learning a new skill? Seeing it in use? Or simply knowing that you have done the best you can?
For me, I have to say one of my most successful projects is my Purple Dress which I made for my friends newborn, Jasmine, in 2009.  Why is this my most successful project?  Well, it's because I made this project 2 years ago, but it is still in use.  I love that this pattern which is originally a dress, became a tunic and is now a top. At 18 months, Jasmine is still wearing the dress and I get a sense of pride knowing that I made something that her parents love enough to keep dressing her in it almost 2 years later.  The pattern is simple enough, but just so amazingly versatile.  You can see from the pictures below how much use it has had, and how Jasmine has grown.  I have a feeling that there may be another Little Sister's Dress in Jasmine's future.

And my all time favourite photo
