Revival Files and A Giveaway Winner!


Total Cost = $4
I had the best of intentions to sell this dress. But... we may have just bonded over the course of three hours yesterday while I was sewing it. I'd sew a sleeve. She'd look gorgeous. I'd finished the hem, positively divine I tell you! And then once I took in the waist I knew it was a done deal. So, yes, I'm just a wee bit attached to Martha (can you blame me for naming such a beauty?!).

Anyways, after I finish sewing dresses I always try them on and give it a good twirl around the house so that Sir Matt can assess my work. Don't be fooled by Matt's charming good looks....he's the harshest of critics when it comes to assessing clothes. Usually I present my finished work and his eyes dart up from his laptop and he nonchalantly says, "Very nice." and then proceeds to go back to work. But today, TODAY WAS DIFFERENT!

 I came out, presented my dress to the panel and no joke this was his critique. "Wow the colors on the dress are awesome. It fits you so good too. DON'T SELL THAT ONE SARAH!"

I tell ya what, I could've died a happy woman, but instead I did a little foot tap dance and stars came shooting out of my toes.

So yes.
Martha stays.

Oh also.
P.S. There are some more revivals up in the shop for sale today! If your looking for revivals in a different size shoot me an e-mail so I can make a dress in your size next time!
