. . . and The Winner Is. . .

Before I announce the winners I just have to say this was a really difficult decision for all of the judges. We have all be talking back and forth this morning trying to narrow it down to the two that we all agreed were the most creative. It was NOT easy! But in the end we all managed to decide on the two that we think were the most creative and also changed the pattern the most to create their own unique dress. However, in my eyes you are all winners and you all deserve a prize so I am going to give each of you who participated in the contest the Olabelhe PDF pattern of your choice. I just want to Thank you all for all your beautiful dresses and to let you know that I truly appreciate all your hard work. I will email all of you to ask you which pattern you would like to add to your collection. So, start looking through the vast collection of Olabelhe patterns and pick out your favorite.

and now without further ado the Grand Prize winner is. . .

Congrats ANNA!!!


We all agreed that Anna really took this pattern to another level with her design. Not to mention her gorgeous applique work. We really love how she did the over skirt with a little bit of a Euro Gypsy flair! Plus the addition of all the trim. 
Very Creative indeed!

the second place winner is. . . . Debra!


This outfit is truly darling and we all fell in love with all the amazing work that Debra put into this outfit. Debra added scallops, and embroidery to her design to make this little masterpiece. She also shortened it and added pants to create this sweet little set.

I will be contacting all of you over the next few days to get all of your prizes to you. THANK YOU again for sharing your beautiful "Olivia's" with all of us. This contest has been so much fun and I heard from so many of you that you would love to do this again! Consider it done. I have already spoken to all the judges and we all agreed that this was a blast and we want to do it again. So, within the next few months I will announce another contest. Next time it will be with another pattern and I am going to challenge you even more! Plus, I am going to work on an even bigger prize package. How does that sound!? I already have a few ideas for a really awesome contest and I just wish I could enter a contest like it. So keep a close eye on my blog for an announcement for the next Big Contest!

I was inspired by all of the talented ladies who submitted their dresses. Thanks to all of you, I now have a lot of ideas floating around in my head to make more "Olivia" dresses!
Thank you, Dawn, for your generosity to give each of us a free pattern! I enjoyed the opportunity to be in the contest and make a sweet dress for my Princess. She loves it!
This was my first Olabelhe pattern to sew, but it won't be my last!
