Pinterest Interest Winner!

I won!

I entered the Sew Much Talent Group's 
March 2018 Pinterest Interest DIY 
Challenge

And to my surprise, my name was randomly chosen as a winner!

I won!


The challenge, which was hosted by Alethia of Sew Much Talent Group was to choose a picture from Pinterest that inspired us and duplicate it. It could have been anything crafty and DIY related, i.e., clothes, shoes, jewelry, home decor and/or furniture.
  
But of course since I sew, I chose a garment. 😊 

The garment in the Pinterest photo I chose was a red Swing/Trapeze dress. But I easily admit I was really inspired by my fellow sewist and blogger, Faye Lewis of Faye's Sewing Adventures 


She'd made a black Swing/Trapeze dress for a Day and Night challenge, which was hosted in January by Elizabeth Farr of Elizabeth Made This.  

I absolutely loved it on her as well as her styling...so much so that it made me wonder if that style would work with my body type.

So off I went...going through my pattern stash! I found and locked in on Simplicity 8383
Then of course I hacked it a bit.

I lowered the front neckline as well as the back...you probably know by now that I really like to lower my back necklines whenever I can! I also lengthened the sleeve and made it a bell sleeve.

I used a stretch crepe from Joann's and did a self binding on the neckline - of course after stabilizing this knit with stay tape





Back to winning! I was the lucky winner of Ayana Glaze's Designs stunning Ena Necklace! The name Ena means fire in Hebrew and is part of her Shekinah Spirit Collection. It is even more beautiful in person!  Check out her website to see all of her beautiful pieces!


 
I do love the dress, but am not quite sure about the length.  For now I'll leave it as it!



Thanks for stopping in!
