As a Contest Manager I am excluded from entering contests here at Pattern Review. (enter sad face here!) I like contests though and saw the SewStylish Summer Fashion Challenge a few days before the deadline.

I entered
This Dress that I had just completed for my daughter's wedding.

Edited to add that...

I won!

Thanks for the great support everyone! All the entries were gorgeous and equally deserving of winning.
Here is a link to the contest. SewStylish / Threads

Connie, that is so exciting! Congratulations. What a fantastic dress you made.

Great prize, also. Just think of all the needles you could get.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.

oh my goodness - what a stunner!

I also love the way your daughter styled the dress you made.

I voted for it; it took me a minute to figure it out - each dress is shown once and then you have to keep scrolling down to get to the place to vote.

I hope it wins!

Apparently there were enough people who voted on time to make you a winner! LOL (Voting was already closed when I saw this.)

Congrats - and you should edit you post to let people know.
