Courtesy of my camera and a fabulous box I snagged at Goodwill, a winner for the pattern guessing contest has been selected: Elizabeth C! She and four others correctly guessed I’m going to sew up Melinda.
Melinda is a bit of a sleeper — it doesn’t have the interesting lines of the other three, but closer inspection showed that the neck/shoulder band is sewn in such a way that it is finished as soon as it is sewn. How cool is that! As a pattern lover whose long sleeve tops are almost exclusively cardigans, Melinda is the best starting point for me.
So, Elizabeth — please send your name and email address to me, and you’ll have your winnings!
Thanks everyone for participating in this contest, really. Your responses were more than I expected, and made the process so much fun! :)
(Also, it took 21 tries to make the above video…can you imagine what it’s like on the set of a TV show???)
