Whoa! What a great beginning of Refashion Runway: Season Two! Eight astonishing transformations from eight talented “Redesigners”.
A big thank you to everyone who voted, all the prize sponsors, and especially the hard working contestants.
I know you all have been waiting for the big announcement, so with out further adieu,
CONGRATULATIONS to Trish from Feeling Kinda Thrifty, you are the winner of this week’s plaid challenge!!!
Your beautiful plaid dress transformation definitely wowed the voters this week! I know we are all super excited to see what you have in store for us next.
And now on to the hard part.
Where’s my box of tissues.
I mentioned last season that good-byes have always been hard for me. It just sounds too final. So as you know, I try to say, “See you later” instead. It sounds more hopeful to me.
So it is with a heavy heart that we must say, “See you later” to a long time blogging friend of mine, Deanna from Wedding Dress Blue. I hope you’ve been able to visit her site and see her beautiful quilts.
We won’t send Deanna home empty handed, though. We will send her with an Avon prize package from Cindy Tkachuck.
Before we go, let’s see what Deanna created for this week’s Emerald Challenge.
“Emerald Green? There is a wide-open challenge. And a fun one! If you have shopped
for fancy dresses lately, you know that the prices can be mind blowing. As Daughter
moves through her teens, we know that dresses are and will be oh-so important. Can
we make this thrift store find work?
This was a fairly complex re-fashion for me, because so many things needed to
change. I still wanted a dress when it was done, but a dress Daughter could wear
to her winter concert, not an 80’s revival party. The biggest change was to the
bodice–change the shape of the waist, add some detailing, new neck line and a
modesty fill to the back. Oh, and the skirt–shorter, no bustle, no bow.
From 80’s pioneer-rock to contemporary with a touch of the 50’s.
Yep, it is quite a change, and a change for the better. Daughter is pleased and
plans to wear it to her winter band concert in December. Ah, $6 and a few hours
well spent!”- Deanna
Your daughter looks beautiful, Deanna!! I hope she enjoys her winter concert.
Now stay tuned to see what the rest of this season’s Redesigners have created for the Pantone Color 2013: Emerald Challenge.
