Winner of the Floral and Geometric/Stripes Challenge Announced Today

So how fun was that!!!???

So many great transformations to choose from. And I totally agree with so many of you when you say it was a tough choice!

It was such a close race this week.

I’m excited to announce that Kara from While Camden Sleeps is the winner of the Floral and Geometric/Stripe Challenge. Kara has posted the details of how she created this beautiful dress over at her site. I hope you get a chance to head over there and check it out. Plus, she has loads of other beautiful transformations to inspire you. You will love her site.



Thanks, Kara, for inspiring us this week!


Now, excuse me while I get my box of tissues, because I love every part of this competition except this part.

Seriously, I have no idea how Heidi Klum does it each week without a bunch of blubbering. I’d be a mess.

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I really HATE good-byes. I never say “good-bye” it’s always, “See you later”. Good-bye just seems so final to me.

But today, we have to say “see you later” to one of our talented seamstresses.

I’m sorry to say that Irene from Give the Cat a Name is leaving us this week, but it’s definitely not good-bye. It’s just “see you later”. I hope you’ll all subscribe to her site and keep up on all of her wonderful posts in the sewing/refashion world.


Before we send her off, let’s take a look at her beautiful gingham refashion for this week.

She started off with this ill-fitting slightly dowdy dress.


And turned it into this sophisticated, curve-hugging beauty.


Thank you SO much for sharing your creative energy with us, Irene. It’s been fun getting to know you!

But we don’t want you to go home empty handed. No. We. Don’t.

We want to send you off with one of Anny’s beautiful bags from It’s Sew Anny.


And a copy of my book, The Refashion Handbook.

The Refashion Handbook

Send me your address and we’ll get these out to you ASAP.

I hope you had fun, I know we enjoyed having you!
