Ooh! Shortlisted!

I was so excited to see my Med Ball Anna was shortlisted for the Dressed to the Nines category in for Sewing Indie Month!

Yay!

Feel free to vote for me – scroll right down to the bottom of the post and then I’m the one called “Dressed to the Nines Anna“.  I’m kind of kicking myself now for choosing such a stupidly generic title when I submitted my link.  But hey, live and learn.

I love sewing fancy dresses – I’m completely inspired at the moment by Poppy Kettle’s wedding dress posts – is it weird to want to sew a full-on couture ball gown without any of the necessary skills or the event to wear it to?  Yes, probably.  Sigh.

Little known secret:  my zipper broke while I was taking this off my dress form after taking some pictures, but before I took pictures of me in the dress.  Boo for cheap, nasty zippers.  I put it on, threw my shoulders back to try and keep the dress from falling off and took the pictures anyway.  Hands on hips worked too.  😛

Sadly, I’m in full-on pre-exam study mode right now, so there’s not much sewing going on around these parts.  But I have plenty of plans for these holidays!
