“Join the Dots” contest is over

April 30th, 2011

Wow, what a contest this was!

You guys submitted so many fantastic designs over the last eight weeks, making this our most successful contest since the very first one last summer. Thank you all, you’re awesome!

We are particularly happy to see that even late entries have a chance to make it to the top: cherryplum posted her design only five days before the deadline. But her winning retro babydoll dress quickly found its fans – closely followed by the Easy and Breezy dress submitted by rma, who won our last contest already.

Our next challenge is very simple… or is it? We’d like you to design a top. There are no restrictions – just show us that essential piece your wardrobe is missing. Can’t wait to see the amazing things you’ll come up with this time!



Two Paperbag Ensemble Dresses

April 1st, 2011

Hello Stylerockers!

I did a bit of web research yesterday, looking for members who used our patterns for their sewing projects, and guess what? I discovered two versions of our Paperbag Ensemble Dress!

The first is by punzel, who used a gingham fabric for the lining to create a really beautiful effect: punzel's Paperbag Ensemble Dress

You can find more pictures (and a description in German) on her website Pepita.

The second is by frauknopf. She added vintage glass buttons and a belt in a floral pattern to make her dress very unique: frauknopf's Paperbag Ensemble Dress

Visit her blog for more pictures (description in German as well): Frau Knopf

Have you sewn a piece based on one of our patterns? Please, do let us know (and show pictures if you can!)! It’s always so great to see what you guys are making out of them!
