We were incredibly touched when we found out @lauralovespugs, @ute_ig and @magdalenesmuse organised an instagram party in honour of @lauralovespugs' (known as Elle in real life) birthday and celebrating our Anna Dress Sewing Pattern. Playing out on 17th & 18th July, you had us beaming at our smartphones as we spent a lot of our weekend updating and scrolling through the100s of brilliant examples of your creativity you all treated us to. Online sewing pals - you're the best! Big thanks to the organisers for getting this show on the road.
Here's our entry: BHL babies modelling our Anna Dress from the sewalong way back in 2013, when we were working out of cafes and each others kitchens and just used to do drive-bys of wherever in London we were, jumping out the car to take quick pix in front of nice looking walls and doors. We like to think we brightened up at least a few passersby's days when using the car as a changing room!
And now, below is a little round up of the winner, finalists, the initial shortlist and just a small selection of all your brilliant makes.
(be sure to keep an eye on @lauralovespugs' instagram for a public vote on the overall winner)
And now for some of the rest: the long.....
(the birthday girl!)
And, finally, the mini!
