Many thanks to everyone who participated in the 40′s Charm or Cheongsam Giveaway and game. It was so much fun to see which designs you all liked the best- 40′s Charm won out! Don’t worry Cheongsam fans, I think it has great potential as a layering piece so I’m likely to make it later this year. I’m playing with the cut and ruching treatment for this month’s hack and I am working with a muse this time! I’m used to dressing myself, I want the challenge of dressing another’s shape, coloring and personality.
And the winners are… PendleStitches and Cindy Moser! Ladies, please email me your mailing addresses so I can send out the lace and lace fabric. As PendleStitches had more points, she gets “dibs.” I just want to say another big thank you to everyone who played along, and I’ll be running other games and giveaways in the near future (because it’s fun!).
My family and I spent the weekend on the northern NSW coast. It’s so beautiful, I always come back refreshed and feeling centered so I thought I’d share a piece of my world with y’all:
I’m really excited about this week. I’m ripping into my $5 Fijian Suit Jacket for your amusement (and who knows what we’ll find!), the second, fine-tuned version of the Sisters of Edwardia Blouse (though I doubt the Ladies Crawley would wear this one!) and also breaking down the favorite designs on the 40′s Charm pinboard (you can still go and tell me which ones are your faves). Best of all, I’m really *really* excited to tell you about this silly little sketch:
While I’m planning the writing for this week, I’d like to know if there’s a concept or a technique anyone would like me to tackle? Leave me a comment and let me know! That will be the “wild card” post.
