Sensational Decorations Winner

June 30th, 2012

Hello everybody,

Our Sensational Decorations contest has ended with a very clear result – Turbo entered two designs and her Delicate Tulle dress won by far. Congratulations, Turbo – well done!

All in all everything is going pretty well here at Your Style Rocks! – we got really great entries for our last contest, we have passed the mark of 10,000 registered users and we receive a lot of nice emails and comments about our patterns. So I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our members for spreading the word, for posting reviews on pattern sites, for mentioning us in your blogs, for sharing our site on Facebook and Pinterest, for showing us your finished projects using our patterns and of course for submitting entries to our contests and voting for your favourites – you guys truly rock!! 🙂

For the new contest we took inspiration from Ladycrusoe who designed a beautiful pair of trousers for our the Sensational Decorations challenge. Although her entry didn’t win we thought it would be a great idea and a nice change after all the dresses and skirts to focus on trousers this time. So – please do give our new subject a thought and let us see your vision of what that perfect pair would look like. What would be the pattern of your dreams, the one you would probably sew over and over again? Make a little sketch and share it here – it might be your design we’re going to turn into a free pattern next time!



rma’s 50s Fashion dress

June 28th, 2012

Hooray, we have a new free pattern!

As everybody must have noticed upon visiting YSR today, we have a new pattern for you – it’s rma‘s 50s-inspired, petticoated dress from the Past Perfect contest and we really, really hope you guys love it as much as we do here at Your Style Rocks!

Some of you might remember that we were really lucky finding a fabric that perfectly matches rma’s original skirt design. For the top part we scoured all our sources but didn’t find any we liked, so we made our own by sewing strips of fabric together – you might see the stitches in the photos if you look carefully! 🙂

So, what do you think of the dress? Send a comment to let us know!
