I won!

5 March 2010, 12:28

Wow! I’ve been entering Pattern Review contests for years and never even come close to winning, but I’ve won first place in the first ever Lingerie Contest!

Lingerie Contest Medium

Thank you all SO much for voting for my Racy Lacy Lingerie set, I’m so touched that it inspired so many of you to sew up some lingerie of your own.

And special thanks go to Sigrid, who inspired me to start sewing lingerie, and also gifted me the gorgeous kit that turned into the winning entry!


  1. Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations on winning the contest. I cannot imagine making lingerie! I think you must have a lot of patience and skill.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. I didn’t know about uk-yankee.com, but I am interested to check it out. I live in an area with other ex-pats, but no Americans.

  24. HI there, I’m looking for a bit of help I hope you dont mind, I was googling Dublin Fabric shops and I came accross your site. I am trying to source a few yards of fabric suitable to making underwear 9briefs) I’m looking for a lightweight cotton stretch with about 5% lycra. Do you know any sites that I could order from? I’m in Ireland, by the way love your site !!
