Guess Who Made The Cover?!!!!!

And what cover would that be? Why it's....
That's not me in the picture, but it is my garment!
Back in August I received an email from the editor of Sew Stylish asking if I would like to be one of the designers for their article, one garment in three versions. The only problem that I had was that I was going out of town and I only had a week to get the project finished. Well, it was make it happen time as I couldn't pass up such a wonderful opportunity. I quickly decided what I would like to do, submitted my idea and my fabric choice. It was all accepted and I was off and running.
Just a few weeks ago I received a proof of the article for me to look over. Since I don't have the magazine yet, I can't show you what it looks like, but it really looks quite nice. It was then that I found out that my garment had made the cover. Just so incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So to prove that this is my garment, here's a picture of the complete piece.


In the article I tell you how to add the tie to the shoulder and I also explain how to add the flounce to the bottom of the skirt.
This was such an honor. The other two designers are the incredible Angela Wolf and Threads editor Sarah MacFarland. The magazine will be available January 17th. Oh man...I can't wait!!!!!!!

  23. Darling! I love the tie on the shoulder, although I'm afraid that every time it brushed my arm, I would think if was a fly and bat it away. I ordered the magazine, but TRIED and TRIED to buy a subscription. Is this just a "once a year" publication?

    1. Hi Joy and thanks! This is a quarterly publication. I'm not sure if you can buy a subscription. I'll look into that. I tried to leave a message on your post about your cat. He really needs a funnel collar so he can't lick his wound. I was surprised that the vet didn't give you one. So happy that things are going well with Jerry's treatment. Please take care of yourself. This has been a very trying period of time for you.
