Pick SIX hmmm? Now that was tough!
How does this work? Everyone had the chance to Vote for their favourites on my blog and on my Instagram feed, @nicedressthanksimadeit, here! hashtag #voteforDD2022. The Votes on my blog were counted by Crowdsignal, then I added them to the “Likes” on my IG for each entry.
Now it appears I have more Prizes than entries! Everyone gets a prize!!
Our talented 19 sewists have been listed below in order of highest total number of votes then descending. I will be contacting each of them, in order, to pick a prize. If someone doesn’t get back to me quickly I will move on to the next and the next until they do contact me. Many entries either tied for Votes or were very, very close. It’s funny how that works!
And just to remember who sewed what – here are their photos again … in no particular order!
