Season 25 Week 4 RESULTS!!

 We can hardly believe it's over, but it's true!!!  Season 25 is in the books, and boy oh boy was it ever one for the books!

If you're sewing along, you have until MIDNIGHT tomorrow night to link up your creations HERE!

Without any delay, here are the Season 25 Week 4 results:

1st Place:


Elizabeth of August Sewing

This is what Liz of Little Lizard King had to say about Elizabeth's Signature Style creations:

This capsule collection is a breath of fresh air that clearly defines your style and skill set with unique pieces that mix and match beautifully and fit perfectly. The modern, minimalist looks you created in earthy neutrals and soft, luxe fabrics and extra special finishes (like hem slits and a leather yoke) make my heart flutter. Personally, I would wear every piece you created. 

You are a wonderful exemplar in teaching your daughter that sewing can be a fabulous way to re-recreate costly brands at a fraction of the cost. Well done on every level!

P.S. Is the coat pattern one you are self drafting or one we can purchase? Asking for a friend.
