Announcing the winner of our contest for One-Yard Skirt Patterns: VeryCherry

JUL 21, 2011 updated May 30, 2016

Congratulations again this week to Nancy Kers, the Dutch artist (& neighbor of Bora) who also won our Puzzle-themed contest a few weeks ago. Nancy's lovely, pleated, flower skirt won the most votes in a contest full of amazing entries. The intrepid sewists on our staff jumped in to finish as many of the top ten as we could in time to photograph for you this week, but we failed to get through all of the terrific designs. They are all, however, now available to purchase!

The winning design is modeled above by Danielle. No official word on who, exactly, is modeling the 'Dance All Day' pattern by katrinazerilli. It's worth noting that — because we've run out of organic sateen a couple of times recently — I ordered all of these on twill, which I am informed is not the perfect skirt fabric. Sorry about that.
