Well lovely ladies, the voting is over in the pattern review mini wardrobe contest and I got second place! I was surprised because there were some beautiful wardrobes. Patty was the big winner which isn’t surprising since I want to make everything she did, and Melissa got third for her amazing wardrobe. I think of every entry hers was the most difficult, jeans and a leather skirt, the girl has some mad sewing skills. So I am so happy with my second, thanks to everyone who voted for me :). I think I might become addicted to contests. I have always been competitive but I never thought my hobby of sewing could be competitive.
In other news I hope everyone who is participating in the very, very, VERY easy sew along is having fun buying their fabric. There was one question about whether or not you can make your own bias tape out of your fashion fabric. The answer is that yes you can. You can either buy an extra half yard of fabric, or if you don’t mind seams I will show you how to piece short pieces together (that is what I did with my navy version). My sister who I am doing this all for is out of town right now so I will do the next step of the sew a long next Thursday, so enjoy gazing adoringly at your fabric until then.
On a side note I remembered a conversation I had with my husband a couple years ago about my sewing
Me– (close to angry tears while I attempted to seam rip french seams from a sheer fabric) “#@#$#, $@#$%, ^#$%#$#$”
My husband– (while gently but firmly prying said fabric from my fingers) “Why do you do this, you obviously aren’t having fun”
Me– (yelling) “Because I enjoy it darnit!”
