4-in1 dress is our wardrobe essential!

February 29th, 2012


what a great start into the year this was! The pattern for Eva’s self titled dress is incredibly popular – it was posted all over the net and brought us many new members, which is just fantastic! We’re really happy that our little website finally seems to be making the rounds among DIY fashion lovers, and we particularly love that so many of our old and new members took part in the Wardrobe Essentials contest. The amount of beautiful entries was just amazing this time, so here is a big thank you to everybody who posted their design – you guys are true stars!

There can, however, be only one winner – and lyssophietje is the one who made it – congratulations! Her cleverly designed 4-in-1 dress left its competitors way behind. We must admit that it might be quite a challenge to construct a pattern that covers all the details she put into it, but we’ll see about that when we get to it. As of now we are working on the 50’s fashion dress that rma designed for our Past Perfect contest – watch this space…

In the meantime we are also eagerly waiting for the launch of Mad Men’s season 5 – and to celebrate this we’d like to invite you to take part in our latest contest, unsurprisingly titled Mad Women! We know a lot of you love the show just as much as we do, so we are hoping for plenty of stylish 60s-inspired designs. Let’s see what you lovely Stylerockers come up with this time!

The pattern for Sewhat‘s hooded bolero jacket has turned out to be a real crowd pleaser! Here are two more versions we found on the net, the blue one here and the grey and yellow one here.

sewingrad’s Everywhere Tails

Has everybody seen sewingrad‘s great version of the Everywhere Tails vest she posted in the forum – we particularly like her choice of fabric, the green brocade goes very well with this style! It’s always so much fun to see where you guys are taking our patterns (and also interesting to hear about any problems you might have run into), so please do keep the photos coming! 🙂
