Valori Wells had a giveaway on her blog. Lucky me, I won :) I received 3 yards of her new Wish Voile (available here) and the Jillie wrap skirt pattern (available here). I've been a fan of her fabric designs for a while now.
|I'm a winner!|
In other news, my Hawthorn dress is just about complete. It just lacks buttons and a hem. I'm letting it hang on my dress form overnight. The directions don't mention to do this but with this type of skirt, it's an important step. You don't want to end up with a wonky hem.
Not sure about the buttons though. I have black and white. I'm leaning towards black buttons mainly because I've never used black buttons before. Would black buttons overwhelm the dress or just blend into all the black dots on the fabric? Decisions.
Overall, I am happy with my Hawthorn. I modified my trusty Butterick 4386 bodice instead of using the original Hawthorn bodice. I just didn't have the patience to try and make it fit with a billion dart alterations.
Anyway, there will be a detailed review once I finish it and take some photos. I've been camera-shy for a bit now. I'm slowly coming back around.
