I know boasting is a sin, but if a sewing blog is not about blowing one’s own trumpet, then what is it about?! 🙂

A couple of posts back I wrote about this dress which I made to enter the Tessuti Gridlock Sewing Competition. You simply have to check out the Pinterest page which features all of the entries. There were some amazing, amazing entries.

The (very worthy, IMO), winner of the $1,000 AUD prize was Sandra’s coat. Cute, right? A fantastic frankenpattern, if ever there was one.

Anyway, the ever so generous Tessuti people have decided to also award five entrants with a $100 Tessuti voucher….and one of those entrants is me!! After seeing the standard of some of the other entries I really never expected to win anything, so I am absolutely thrilled.

Check out the details of Sandra’s coat and see the other 4 runners up from this link.

Until later….bye from a very happy me!

By day I work in the exciting world of pharmaceutical regulatory affairs, registering medicines (!), but by night I turn in to a sewing diva, making all manner of clothes in my beautiful sewing space (which you can tour using the link at the top of this blog). I love how sewing and sewing clothes that fit my curvy body continually challenges me. I enjoy working with all different types of fabric, and whilst I don't like to put restrictions on myself and say I won't buy RTW, the truth is that I probably rarely do buy it, preferring the fit of my own me-made clothes. I love to use natural fibres where ever possible and colourful coats are an obsession of mine! Sewing is both my addiction and my therapy. You can contact me at sewmanju@yahoo.co.uk

    1. Hey Sam, don’t know if you will check this/ get this, but just tried to leave some comments on your blog and it wouldn’t let me…the security thing wouldn’t come up properly to let me type the words in…will try later on…just letting you know I stopped by to admire your handiwork!

      1. Thanks for letting me know you had a problem. I’ve recieved other comments today, so not quite sure what happened (and I’m not very good with the technical side of blogging!) Thanks for stopping by anyway.

  1. Congratulations, I think your dress was definitely one of the best, as I said in a previous comment, the fit is fantastic and the fabric choice is perfect. Looks like an expensive designer dress.

  2. It’s a beautiful dress and Congrats on the win! I hope you buy something amazing with your prize!
