Another Contest

2014 Fitted Blouse - Skill Level INTERMEDIATE

My dress came in 21st place out of 70 plus entries. I’m thrilled! I got TWENTY votes. Happy day!
Even better, I wore my dress out last Saturday to see Psycho on the big screen with a friend. Win win!

Now I am on to the next contest: fitted blouse, a skills challenge. Thankfully, I muslined a shirt last month so even though I am joining to contest with only seven sewing days left, I’m feeling pretty confident.
