The votes are in and better late than never I’m happy to announce that Claire’s t-shirt won your vote!
Claire will be enjoying her next MIY Collection pattern for free, congratulations!!
If you feel inspired to make your own t-shirt, this one is from my first book “The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking”.
(ps. With summer around the corner, this looks great lengthened into a t-shirt dress too! Just saying…..)

I can’t believe I completely forgot to post this on here. (I managed to post it everywhere else!!)
So, it was a fairly close run vote, but Kath’s Fulwood dress won in the end. I do love the look of those pleats turned into gathers and have been inspired to make a version of my own. More on that soon.
In the meantime a well deserved congratulations to Kath.
