For a while there I never thought I would be saying that. Sewing production line style is great for getting lots of the same thing done, but it was really beginning to do my head in. Just the repetition! And the last step before sewing the buttons on involved quite a number of smaller steps that took about an hour to complete for each one....
So yes, I love production line sewing - but maybe for smaller quantities than 8 of the same thing....
Anyway! In celebration of getting my holiday wardrobe finished, I thought we'd have a fun giveaway! I'm going to post the photos of the skirts and the blouses below, and I'd like you leave a comment on this blog post saying which goes with what. The skirts will be numbered 1 to 7, and the blouses A to G, so comment and say 1C 2C 3G etc.
I hope that makes sense! The people that get it right will be going into the draw to win a 'Make-An-Outfit-Like-Mine' Kit - (modern) border print fabric, zipper, and closure to make a skirt, and fabric, pattern (copy of mine), buttons, and matching thread to make a blouse!
I haven't put it all together yet, but here is the border print fabric for the skirt:
Yes, I should have ironed it....
Ok! So I know you've seen them all before, but here are the skirts. Note they are numbered in the top left hand corner.
And here are the blouses - also numbered in the top left corner!
Its going to involve a fair bit of scrolling backwards and forwards isn't it... sorry... but it will be worth it if you are picked the winner!!!
This little competition will be open from now until 9pm Sydney time on Thursday the 24th - so that's 4 days to work it out! The winner will be drawn and announced in a new blog post on Friday that also shows everyone the completed outfits (or the correct answers) on my dress form.
