Thanks everyone for such nice comments about the EvaDress competition! It's so much fun to share good news with all of you!
Thanks also to everyone who entered the giveaway...I wish I could give each and every one of you the pattern of your choice (as I would love to see them all made up!)
So without further ado...onto the winner...
The winner of the giveaway is Seersucker Sally! YAY! Congrats! If you're not already following Seersucker Sally's blog, you really must go and have a look! She made the loveliest blue swing dress as part of Casey's swing dress sew-along. Congrats--can't wait to see what you make up with the EvaDress pattern. Just send me an email (myhappysewingplace[at]googlemail[dot]com) and we'll get it all sorted!
I also finished my 1941 apron!! I made it from a lovely polka dot cotton fabric:
It's from McCall 917 and I must say, I really adore this pattern. Everything from the ruffled sleeves to the adorable pockets, to the t-bar and bow back!
Here's a photo of the bow in the back!
Here's a picture of the arm ruffle....I did the same thing with the arm ruffles because I knew the underside would show. The instructions said to just hem the edges of the arm ruffle, but like the back bow, I wanted a more 'finished' look. I didn't want my hems and the backside of the material to show! So I also faced the shoulder ruffles.
I also really adore the pockets on this apron, which have their very own ruffles:
Can I invite you in for a cup of tea? These apron definitely makes me want to host a large dinner party or bake a loaf of bread....
Or drink some wine! HA! That's my favorite part of cooking anyways ;-)
Cheers everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start!!
