The Next Frock by Friday Is.....

September 30, 2010

Man, it certainly was a 'split' decision. I had to extend the voting by 10 minutes because it was quite frankly a dead heat. But the winner won by literally ONE vote at the last minute. The next frock by friday for the month of October is....
The Gail Frock! I'll be showing how to make the alterations so that it more closely resembles the Modcloth frock. So print the patter and buy your material for next week. I'll be giving periodic updates on the frock to my followers. So please follow the blog for those.


And since the second frock was soooo popular I do plan on using it as November's FBF.

Stay tuned for a Thrift Store Thursday post later today! It's a good one:) (I think)

Yay, glad I voted.

Grosgrain: where every vote really counts because there's no electoral college.

Awesome! I'll definitely be following this one :)

What fabrics/notions would you suggest?

Britta said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm so thrilled to participate in this again! Yeah! One question though, what kind of fabric would you recommend for a beginning sewer? I'm confident I can execute the dress, but on the other hand I don't want to spend tons of money on silk just in case I do an awful, awful job.

Can we do the Madison next month? Pretty please?

Darsana said... Best Blogger Tips

Another request for fabric help! What kind fabrics should we consider (especially as beginners?) and should we buying extra lace if we're doing ModCloth mods?

I also loved the one that didn't win... can we do it for next month and maybe add sleeves?
thanks and congratulations on your book deal... I hope some of your unique designs will be included!
