The Ultimate Sewing Room contest entry
I'm just getting back into scrapbooking, so I'd love to get some ideas for photographing the everyday stuff (especially since I'm also a newlywed!) Thanks for the opportunity!
I was surprised, because I really thought Viktor was going to take it. He's a very talented designer, and I'm so impressed with how quickly he can whip out these perfectly tailored pieces. I've been sewing for years, and something like that white jacket would take me at least a month! That being said, I have been cheering for Anya throughout the season--she seems like a genuinely nice person, and she's been kind of the underdog throughout. I like her aesthetic, and I agree with the judges that it will be interesting to see how she grows as a designer (especially as her sewing skills improve.)
Also, I honestly would have been ok with anyone BUT Joshua winning. I hate his style, and he's mean. So if he'd won this year, between that and Gretchengate, I think I would have to give up on the show altogether! (AFTER the All-Stars season.)
Ugh... several of the male designers, and Oliver in particular, were really getting on my nerves this time. All of that complaining about his client's bra size! I just wanted to shake him and tell him that if he plans on having a successful line, most of his clients will probably be women, and guess what? Most of us have curves. DEAL WITH IT.
I would love this-- I'm completely clueless when it comes to marketing and pricing!
I've been trying for YEARS to teach myself to draft patterns, with mostly little success, so I'd love to take a look at this book!
In a way, I'm a little sorry that Ari went home instead of Mitchell-- it sounded like he was just making excuses, and Ari would have been rather entertaining. I wrote on my blog that Ari's dress basically looked like something out of a b-grade sci-fi flick that would have gotten skewered on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and seeing what she came up with for future challenges could have been interesting!
I love that you showed the sketches next to the final results. Definitely linking to this on the blog post.
I would love to have a chance to win this!
Fun idea! And good to see how to DIY it. I'm going to be redoing a closet within the next couple of months, and was looking for some inexpensive storage ideas... stumbled across this, which I'm posting as inspiration because I have no doubt that it could be DIYed with this technique and a little extra time: http://www.containerstore.com/browse/Product.jhtml;jsessionid=IPBNBUIE2Q0DJQFIAIMSNAGAVABBOJVC?CATID=78244&PRODID=10020377
(Incidentally, the site also comments that a coat of light lacquer prevents the ink from smudging.)
Ooh, I'd love this!
This probably wouldn't apply to most of my camping trips (I go backpacking a couple times a year), but it looks entertaining!
I love how your giveaways have been so focused on recycling and eco-friendly crafts lately!
Ooh, free patterns! Count me in!
This book looks so fun-- I'm always up for sewing ideas with recycled materials!!
The book looks fantastic!
