My first thought was, as usual, negative. No way anyone is going to look at anything that I make and think it worthy of a prize. Then I shoed the bad thoughts away, (that's what I have been working on this Lent) and ordered the pattern. When it came I searched through my stash of fabrics and trims and did what any creative person would do, I let everything sit on my table for about two weeks just kind of stewing.
This is what I came up with. Did I mention that the due date for entries is March 31? or that I started sewing on Thursday of this week? Nothing like a little pressure to get the creative juices flowing. When I got the whole thing done I realized that I had one issue that I couldn't so easily solve, Layn is a boy! I needed a model. So I searched through my mind and this cutie came immediately to my thoughts. She's the daughter of a dear friend and she is stunning in this little dress. I knew when she got it on that it was made for her and no one else.
Now my fingers are crossed time will tell.
