Friends, you could have knocked me down with a feather yesterday when Rachel and Kate from The Fold Line emailed me to say that I had won their pattern design competition! Then they put it on their Instagram feed and my Instagram feed went bananas!!
Thank you so much to everybody for taking the time to vote for me, I appreciate it more than I could ever say. And thank you also for all the lovely messages on Instagram.
I really didn't expect to win as the other two entries were brilliant. The coat was such a classic and wearable design, and the shaping the bodice of the other dress was so cleverly done; I loved it. Rachel and Kate will start the process of creating the pattern in the new year, and I shall let you know when it will be realised.
Normal blogging service shall resume when I have calmed down!! And thank you once again for your support. It's been said before, but I shall say it again - Sewists are the nicest people!!
Have a brilliant weekend,
