While you’re here I just have to share my exciting news. I woke up on Monday morning to find out that I was named the “Best of April” WINNER in a month long Instagram challenge called Sew April 2017, hosted by Sewing and Design School. The idea was to post a picture related to the theme of the day. My post for Day 25, Sewing Inspiration, was chosen as BEST of April. I still can’t believe I won. Thanks to Sewing and Design School for a great month of shared talent. Here’s the caption I wrote for my post:
“I get sewing inspiration from pattern envelopes, fabric, and other women. When looking at patterns, I start thinking about the types of fabrics I can use to bring the look to life. When I see, and especially touch, fabrics, I form garments and style them with my favorite accessories in my mind. Finally, when I see women wearing beautiful garments, my first thought is, “I can make that!” This gorgeous dress was inspired by the Burda 6851 pattern envelope. Then I found this photo of the identical DKNY look after I completed my dress. Imagine my surprise! I can’t help but wonder which came first, Burda or DKNY?”
Here’s the photo I posted, and the pattern envelope which was my inspiration is below.
