Second Giveaway Winner ...and Mama Grand

Friends, the winner of the second giveaway is.... Jen aka knitstuff!!! Yay!!! Congrats Jen, I will be contacting you shortly for an address so I can send you goodies :)

Well, the Sew Weekly Challenge this week involves honoring our mothers.  While I don't have a picture of her wearing this outfit, I'm honoring my Mom by giving one of her all time favorite dresses some love...

The green and black combo is fabulous!  I am seriously in love with the color and style, but not so crazy about the shoulder pads....unless I make another hat :)  I think I am most excited about the pockets!

I'll be shortening the hem, taking it in on the sides, removing the shoulder pads and taking the sleeves in, shortening the sleeves, taking down the front flap...and I think that may be it.  It's a fantastic piece, and I cannot wait to get started on it!

(No, I do not have Gollum feet - I am just curling my toes.  I mean, I totally have huge feet, but I get all fidgety when I have to stand still for five seconds.)

I love the zipper down the back.  This will definitely stay.  I love when I don't have to adjust zippers.

So, Mama Grand, I just wanted to say thank you for the dress.  I promise to make you proud :)

Love, Your Baby Grand


  1. Can't wait to see the finished dress. The colors are very nice! :]

  2. Yes to another should pad hat! I think it'd be hilarious to show up to a wedding with one of those and tell people the story behind it. Probably would get "uhhhh" looks, but good stuff!
