Simply stunning, isn't it? The large, graphic print is just lovely on MarrieB and, as her fabric had considerable drape, she chose to both underline (using this tutorial) and line the dress! Marrie also incorporated several tips from her mother's sewing books - generational sewing, I love it! All in all, this is a wonderful example of creating a garment that appeals to both your sense of style and flatters your figure. Well done!
Up next is Erin's ravishing Truffle, which suits her figure and personality perfectly! The bold leopard and floral print is just as fun and sassy as Erin herself! The addition of the coordinating belt emphasizes Erin's waist and is really pretty to boot! I love how this dress, which Erin was a bit undecided on in the beginning, has become one of her favourite patterns. According to Erin, she wants "to make this dress in every color! I want one without a ruffle, one with piping along the collar, and one in a Hawaiian print." Well done, Erin!
The Taffy blouse really seemed to pull everyone in two distinct directions: either they loved the pattern or they did not. Votes for the best Taffy went in all different directions, as well, and I ultimately chose to feature Mommy en France's gorgeous Taffy, which she modified into a nightgown. I thought this was a particularly spectacular twist and love how it turned out! I just love the fabric she used and think it makes a very chic and elegant nightgown. Great job!
