please vote for me!

Yay, I finally have my entry uploaded to the Tessuti Awards competition. Now I want everyone to go and vote for me HERE, and get your sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, neighbours and co-workers to vote for me too! Ok, I was just kidding about that last bit, and really you should check out all the entries on the site and choose the best dress to vote for. But the prize for most voted dress is $500 fabric and you all know how much I need more fabric (yes seriously!)





Far out it's difficult to photograph a black dress and get enough detail without lightening the photo so much that it looks washed out. We had gale force winds here today, so I had to settle for indoor photos, and I hope my photos do the dress justice because it really does look beautiful in real life and fits my friend perfectly. It also helps that she is a gorgeous Italian with beautiful hair, and even though these photos were taken on a Sunday morning she still looks glamorous:


It's such a weight off my mind to have the dress finished and entered. Even though I don't think I have any chance of winning the main prize since there are some amazing entries from fashion college students, I am happy with myself with for just finishing the dress and entering it. And I also conquered this pattern too, since it foiled me last time I tried to make it so I'm also very happy about that too!z

Now if only I can muster enough energy to make another version of this dress for myself, perhaps in the fuschia wool crepe I planned to make it previously......

  8. Vote cast, and well deserved - that dress is AMAZING! When you first tackled it I was sad to see you abandon it, but boy have you conquered it now! Your friend is the perfect model for an LBD (or a potato sack I suspect) and shows off your impeccable work so well. Good luck with the competition!
