Last Chance to Vote in the Eva Dress Pattern Contest

If you haven’t already, I would highly recommend checking out all of the Eva Dress Contest entries.  There are some fabulous projects, including quite a few formal gowns that have me itching to sew a full length gown!

My peplumed skirt entry may be found here.  Is "peplumed" really a word!?  Oh well, it sounds better than "a skirt with a peplum," right?  

Voting closes Monday EST at 11:59 p.m. - I would really appreciate your vote!  

And thank you for your support!


  1. I voted for you! I'm just glad that we aren't in the same category :) Good luck!

    1. Thank you Nabby! I voted for you as well, and was thinking the same thing: so glad I don't have to compete against that ridiculously fab gown! And every time I see that cheery red blouse I just have to smile!

  2. Just voted you five stars! It's a stunning outfit and you look gorgeous. I hope you win! x

  3. Overheard Conversation #17:

    "That wasn't you I saw at the Category 4 voting booth today?"
    "Of course not. You weren't there behind some Foster Grants yourself, now were you?"
    "Crap! We're like a couple of closeted Fanilows."
    "Is that redundant?"
    "THAT Laura Mae; her fascinating college years with a costuming class, her vegetarianism, and her unabashed ability to turn a noun into a verb ("peplumed"), are all so alluring."
    [scoff] "You want to deride, chide, snipe, and editorialize her every effort, but they are flawless, enchanting, artistic, and fetching."
    "Now were burning shoe leather to the voting booth on her behalf."
    "She's a force majeure on the web, and likely even more so at the office."
    "Pity those attorneys who labor under her watchful gaze."
    "Please, we know who they have one their side, and suffer they will gladly."
    "Mmmm hmmmm. She is an unfair competitive advantage."
    "Let's just take our seats in the chorus, but keep those sunglasses on."
    "Ya, we'll hide in plain sight."
    "Mmmm hmmm."

  4. I voted :-) I also nominated you for the Liebster award! Participation is optional. Details on my blog :-) The Musings of a Dedicated Housefiancee
