A whole new world?

Yesterday I found out I won the giveaway over on GonetoEarth's blog, and the prize was my choice of her lovely Anna Maria Horner patterns. I swithered for a bit but I took a leap of faith and decided on the Socialite dress:

Notice anything strange about this dress? It's for a woman! It will be my first attempt at making something for myself and I'm more than a little bit scared.
And Julia is so awesome that it arrived today (in beautiful packaging I might add), so I've been studying the instructions intently. I'm not sure which fabric I should use, maybe my favourite frog print? What do you think, would that look silly on an adult? I'll post the results when I'm done, unless I look ridiculous, in which case I'll never mention it again...


  1. Congratulations on your win! I can't wait to see how your dress comes out.

    I reckon the frog print will be ace ;)

  2. congratulations - and that frog print I think will look good on anyone.

  3. I love that dress! I've been awaiting it's arrival anywhere- not that I sew anything lately, just hoard patterns. I think the frog print will be lovely as well.

  4. Frog, frog, frog, frog, (I'm settng up a chant here!)

  5. I think this pattern is great, I'd try to try it for myself too.
    Can't wait to see the result :-)

  6. I saw a lady wearing a jacket just like your girls double breasted one yesterady and it looked fab - I may have a go at one myself! Not sure my red hippo print would work on a grown up though!

    Can't wait to see your finished dress

  7. Frog it is then! It was the chant that clinched it :)

    But... green or black frog?
