Wow, thank you SO much to everyone who voted for my look this week in Project Run and Play! I won the first challenge, which is so crazy to me.
To be honest, when the Simple Simon girls first asked me to participate in the contest a couple of months ago, I was positive they had sent that email to the wrong person. My blog has been mostly quilting focused for the last 9 months or so, with the exception of the Oliver & S sew-along and a few random projects I made for my kids. Still, I considered myself very much an amateur at garment making, and I could think of 3 dozen other bloggers that would have been better in Project Run and Play.
But now that I have actually tried my very best and won one of the weeks, I feel so excited and confident that part of me thinks I should just quit while I'm ahead. "Thanks folks! I'm out!" :)
But a bigger part of me is very competitive and has tasted a small victory... I'm in it to win it now friends, I'll make no qualms about it. Maybe I miss college volleyball more than I thought I did.
But the competition is fierce. Everyone is SO creative and talented. We'll see what happens from here, but I'm having so much fun! (Even if it is really intense and kind of stressful fun. Sometimes that's the best kind... you know, if you are slightly insane.)
So anyway, there is a tutorial up today on PR&P about how I pieced the chevron circle skirt. I also explained the much more practical skill of making an encased elastic waistband with a facing, so check it out here.
For this coming weekend's look, I got to sew for Hendrix, which I'm much more comfortable with. I can't wait to show you! Stay tuned for Friday...
