Well done to everyone that finished - voting was tricky; they are all lovely dresses.

I haven’t had any chance for sewing lately so I only got as far as ideas and buying some fabric for this challenge.  Thanks for the challenge CCL, it’s been great watching from the sidelines and I have some nice teal velvet fabric for when I do get a chance to use it  ;)

Just a reminder!  Last day for voting on the Dress challenge.

Here are the links again:

Polls and thumbnails are up in our first annual Dress Challenge.   Polls are at the top of each thread.  Thumbnails are my 12-27-2018 post in the thread itself.

Beginner to Intermediate

Intermediate to Advanced

Vote for one in each challenge.

It would be interesting to learn if folks thought this was fun and if we should do it again sometime.

This was a wonderful contest, CCL. It was well designed, thanks to you, and it was fun for me as a non-participant to see how each contestant stretched her sewing skills. We all need to do that now and again.

I enjoyed following along with this contest. A huge thanks to you for organizing, directing, and donating the prizes. :heart_smilie:

CCL, I thought it was great fun to follow along and the format you came up with was perfect. The different categories for skill level was brilliant and thoughtful. Well done!

Thank you to all who voted for my entry, and especially to CCL for creating and sponsoring this challenge! I found that the parameters of this challenge really pushed me to try some new techniques I had always meant to attempt, and the result has been a very wearable dress and a new TNT pattern.
