Clothing Options in a different order from the video

Hey! I've been following Kenneth as closely as I can but I've noticed at the end of the video that my clothing options aren't in the same orders as on his builder page. On my page from top to bottom they go "Hat, Shirts, Footwear, Pants, Glasses" but in the video its "Shirts, Pants, Glasses, Hat, Footwear"

Is there any reason for this? Did I miss something in my code?

This is not an error. It is because the dictionary hasn't got a fixed order. When you write this: {% for category, choices in options.items() if category != 'colors' %} you loop through a dictionary and the dictionary has no fixed order.
