All that stripe manipulating and orientation planning was well worth the effort. And I’m so glad I made the push to finish the jacket in time. What I didn’t mention previously is that I planned the stripe orientation quite thoroughly by sketching the stripes on copies of the pattern cover image to see if it got the ‘look’ that I wanted.
The other winner is Rachel of CoreCouture who made not one, but TWO gorgeous Ziggi jackets with meticulous craftsmanship. Congratulations, Rachel!
Did I mention that I’m SOOO excited about this?! This is the first sewing-related ‘contest’ I’ve ever won!
So what do I win???
Chloe from Style Arc has generously donated the prizes and I get to choose a gorgeous Style Arc masterpiece as my winning pattern. What to choose…what to choose? Do you have any suggestions?
I love the Catherine Dress. (image from Style Arc)
And the Alisha dress (image from Style Arc)
Or maybe something more wintery like Sammi or Sara…? (image from Style Arc)
I wish I had a reason to make (and wear!) the gorgeous Pippa dress. (image from Style Arc)
Without the guiding lights of SewMaris and StacySews to lead me through the rocky bits I might have to opt for a less that “Experienced Sewer” pattern.
Have you tried any of the Style Arc patterns? Which ones are your favourites? Do you have any suggestions on which one I should pick? I’d love to hear from you.
