It’s so funny how things turn out. Remember this dress?
Where I could not decide whether to wear it or not? Well when the Exposed Zipper contest, sponsored by Coats & Clark, popped up on Pattern Review I thought ‘hmmmm, I have something with an exposed zipper I might just enter it’ and then it won! I was always pleased with how the zipper looked and it’s gratifying that all the work that went into making this dress (it’s really nicely finished) paid off! I’m not so pleased with how I’ve got those two bulges on my back – but that’s me pulling my shoulders a little rounder so the zip is more ‘exposed’ *sigh* the things we do for sewing!
I won a Restyling with Exposed Zippers course with Angela Wolf and a pack of fashion zippers from Coats & Clark. I’ve always enjoyed Pattern Review, I think it’s a great resource if you are thinking about making a certain pattern or just cruising the gallery for inspiration. Thank you Pattern Review!
I won a Pattern Pyramid a little while ago from Made By Trisha. It arrived yesterday – just got to take some pictures of the patterns, write a post and then you can all start jumping up and down and screaming ‘pick me! pick me!.
