Have you got the D factor?

I am not talking cup size here- in which case I have the -A factor- D is for Dress!   The Sewing Directory, Abakhan Fabrics, Hobby and Home and Janome have all joined forces to run a great competition with highly desirable prizes, including the Janome Memory craft 5900- the same machine that I won in the Christmas competition and 4 runners up receive £50 vouchers from Abakhans.




I know from the lovely comments you make on my clothing efforts that there are a lot of you out there who are tempted by garment sewing and even if making your own wardrobe is not for you,  this competition includes accessories- bags,  purses, scarves, fabric jewelry- they all count!  



 Five designers will be chosen and Abakhans  will supply fabric for you to make up your design.   I buy a lot of fabric from Abakahns, the green linen from my new skirt was from there.  Their shops really are an Aladdin's cave of fabric treasures!  Go on, be brave,  plan a project, enter- my lovely sewing machine is only sitting here now because I did the very same.  Find out more details here.

    2. Are you brave enough to dip you toe in and give it a go?

    3. I am at the dreaming stage at this point. I think I need to get the Tova shirt under my belt. I have literally not made a clothing item in over 10 years.

      You have so many clothing items that have me dreaming right now! I loved that recent skirt. (and totally laughed at the looking like our dog comment...I had a photo with one dog in which I realized he was totally making the same eyes at me I would make at him).

      Thanks for what you do. I have my fabric for my Tova. I just wish there were more hours in the day...
