WOW-WEE! When I crafted this competition, this is exactly the kind of week I'd hoped for. I wanted to watch sewists of similar talent face-off, push their own limits, and create pieces that would distinguish their portfolios for some time to come.
Clearly, both these seamstresses did just that. You all came out in droves to support them, to offer them more than 700 votes, and a small novel's worth of comments.
SarahLynn spared no detail in creating her full-on prince charming look. Welt pockets, button-up, fully lined jacket, a top-notch TOP HAT for crying out loud! This was impressive work! I recognize and appreciate your dedication to this project, and the hours spent executing your vision.
Cassie's unique challenge was in CREATING detail. And she did not disappoint. Where she could have simply hemmed her romper, she chose instead to hand paint butterflies there. Where her pattern called for a basic sash, she saw the opportunity to add waves tucks (in contrasting fabrics, no less!).I'm so proud of your choice to work with very challenging fabrics, and how expertly you have done just that.
Rock on, ladies! I dub thee both "Fairy Godmothers"!
