A Quilting Cotton Contest

For national sewing month, JoAnn Fabrics and Pellon sponsored a Sew Your Style contest – the only rule was to use quilting cotton.  Well, as a huge fan of using quilting cotton for summer frocks, this was the perfect excuse to finish up this dress (there will be a more in depth post, but first I wanted to finish up with my Gala Gown!).


This particular cotton comes from JoAnn Fabrics, and, to top it all off, I used Pellon as an under-structure to give lots of body to the skirt – which made it the perfect choice for this contest, right?!

I believe you need a Facebook account to vote, so if you have one, I would appreciate your support!  Voting ends October 7th.

  3. I always read your blog but haven't left a comment until now. I just voted for you on Joann's FB page. Love your dress. What is the name of the fabric? I don't need any more cloth, BUT . . . . this is beautiful. And you did such a lovely job. My favorite kind of dress! -----Pam

    1. Thank you for your vote, Pam!

      The selvedge says the fabric is licensed by David Textile, Inc. and the copyright is Ching Han/Licensed by Rosenthal Represents. I found it in the "designer" quilting cotton section of my local JoAnn Fabrics (the store separates them out). A quick google search is not coming up with the exact fabric . . . but I hope you find it!

    1. And thank you, Marie, for motivating me to get going on the dress! I have a tendency to get stuck staring at pretty vintage pattern envelopes and never actually open them up to make something from them - your vintage pattern pledge took care of that!
