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.
Wow what a start to MIY March it’s been so far! After only 9 days there has already been over 4000 pictures posted by the sewing community on Instagram.

Well, 2017 MIY Makers got off to a good start, all 4 final makes were so popular it was neck and neck and I had to extend the voting time to get a final winner.
In the end Kath’s spotty Roewood Jersey Pencil Skirt from my book Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts just pipped the others to the post, by just 3 votes!
Congratulations Kath who wins her choice of MIY Collection pattern. This is already her second Roewood skirt and it sounds like she has many more in the planning.
If you fancy being February’s MIY Maker, just share a photo of your makes using my patterns on social media. Full details here.
