DMK Best Maker Sewing Contest, Finalist

I made this Lovely Ribbon Blouse for the little miss and entered it in the DMK Best Maker Sewing Contest, hosted by Christine over at From An Igloo.

I am so happy to be selected as one of the Top 8 finalists. Looking at the extremely gorgeous creations of the others I'm not sure if I stand a chance of winning, but being a finalist is an honor to me. The voting is ON till 31st August, please cast your vote here.

I used Karen's beautiful pattern Lovely Ribbon Dress/Blouse and the fabric is from my current favourite collection, Spa by Rosemarie Lavin. I love the sophisticated soft colors this collection features and the teal and brown print is very elegant to me.

Karen, the designer, was very friendly and really helpful when I emailed her to get some help about sewing the blouse. I love the fact that this beautiful design helped me learn many new sewing techniques as I really want to progress as a sewer. The design features front pleating, fully lined and reversible. I omitted the elastic on the sleeves as I like it simply this way. I used a soft polka dot lawn cotton for the lining. DMK has so many cute patterns in her shop, check it out if you haven't, you will not be disappointed!

The little miss was of course very happy with her new top, smiling non stop when I put it on, I am one happy momma :)

If you voted for me, THANK YOU friends! *hugs*
