My Sewing Bee final outfit
Bonjour! Bel bonjou’!
So there you have it. Your 2016 Sewing Bee winner is Charlotte! Congratulations darling!
Charlotte was a funny and witty character and very skillful. Giving her a hug was heaven because her hair always smelled nice and were ever so soft. I am really pleased for her and her family.
The final was emotional for all of us and we all shed tears, reminiscing over the experience we lived.
I had a few questions and comments about my outfit that day.
I am reporting here a few of those questions with their answers:
- Did you make that? Yes. I think most of us wore something we made to film the final. Some were just hot off the sewing machine at home, that same afternoon!
- You like pleats don’t you? (I had them in my alteration and made-to-measure challenges on week 1) Yes I do. A well pleated skirt is more flattering that a gathered skirt in my opinion. In Martinique we like the bum lift a pleat gives you. No need for plastic surgery to get a J-Lo rear end. I agree, however, it is a little trickier at the front.
- You like pattern matching? I find pattern matching an enjoyable challenge, like a puzzle. Completing a successful match puts a huge smile on my face and gives me a sense of accomplishment before the garment is finished and pushes me to finish the rest of it to a high standard.
- Do you like pink? I don’t actually but I like it combined with other colours. I find it is a great combination with grey, silver, green, red, orange, certain shades of blue. Not a big fan of black and pink. What pink combination do you have for me?
What pink combination do you have for me? There is a giveaway in it so pick wisely!
I am giving away 1 m and 1 x 0.50m, total of 1m50 of the fabric of my Sewing Bee final outfit. The best pink combination in the comment section wins it.
