Wow, what an absolutely fantastic response we had to the Dresses contest for Indie Pattern Month! 33 gorgeous, creative, impressive dresses were stitched up and entered in the contest, from a wide variety of indie labels! Everything from formal to casual, winter to summer, short to maxi length. We had so much fun reading all the posts, looking at all the images, and getting inspired by all of your creativity.
And it sounds like you had fun, too! We had 282 votes on the Dresses contest – a huge thank-you to everyone who took the time to cast a vote for who they thought would win!
And now, the voting has finished. We’ve counted up the community votes, the judges have scored each dress, and we’ve tallied up the scores so we can answer the big question – who won???
Now, the winners were chosen through a mix of community vote and scores from the judges. 50% of their total score came from the community votes, and 50% from the judges scores, so the winners are the ones who were popular, well executed, and well photographed. And my, it was a close contest!
But sadly, much as we’d love to give a prize to everyone, there can be only four winners. (Although you’re all winners, really, as you all have fabulous new dresses to wear!)
So, here goes……
Tea and Rainbows with Come Sail Away With Me!
Anne W with A Snowball in Paris!
The winner of the Lekala prize (five patterns of the winners choice) is…..
Andie L with Gold Moneta!
The winner of the Salme and Pattern Postie prize (a Jalie pattern of the winners choice from the Pattern Postie shop and a Zakka ribbon pack from Pattern Postie, and a $10 store voucher for patterns from Salme) is…..
Rebecca with Lemon Drop Maxi!
Congratulations everyone! We’re sending each of you emails to let you know you’ve won.
We’d also like to give a huge thank-you to the sponsors of the Dresses contest, who have each donated prizes, and without whom we couldn’t do the Indie Pattern Month contests – you’re all amazing! Thank you to….
