Winter Wonderland Winner! And the next challenge...

First of all, thank you everyone for voting and for your kind comments! I am amazed by how many people stopped to vote! For those of you who were concerned about the entries not being anonymous, please remember that the judges score counts for HALF of the total score.

With that being said...the winner of the Winter Wonderland challenge is-

Katy's Avalanche! Be looking for a tutorial from her this week! Congrat's Katy!

Unfortunately, this week we also have to let someone go. This week it was a close call. Sadly, we have to let Jessica go. Jess, we loved having you here and look forward to more creations from you!

This week's challenge for the designers is a little different. They have each been given a Leila and Ben Sweet Dress pattern, and their job is to reinterpret it to make it something fabulous.
 This dress is a basic style, affordable, and easy to customize. So let's see what they come up with! Just like last week, if you make something using the Sweet Dress pattern, link up to it in the comments here and you may be featured this Friday!

  1. I did an entire month of 'makeovers' for the Sweet Dress last spring. You can see a collage of all of them here: http://sugarnspicecreations.blogspot.com/2010/05/pattern-makeover-month-recap.html

    So much fun! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

  2. Is it a surprise that Katy won?? She is so talented and from what I can tell from her blog (which I am a long time follower of) one of the nicest and most talented people ever!! Katy I wish I lived closer to the sunshine state as I would love to not only get lessons but get a real glimpse of an angel on earth!!!

  7. Could you do a little more explaining of who the judges are and how it works with their scores...or maybe I just missed it somewhere on the blog. I'm just curious.
