I got the boot from Project Run and Play this week, so I’m officially back! Back from sew-dresses-like-crazy land. I have been working ahead throughout the whole competition since the end of November, so I’m so glad it’s over! I didn’t realize how much time and emotional energy I’d been dedicating to this competition. Sheesh. But anyways, let’s just talk about this week. This dress (the Neapolitan party dress) got me sent home with barely 6% of the vote. What the heck guys? This is the cutest thing I’ve ever made!
out and back!
It’s okay, though. I supposed I’d rather be sent home for something I love than stay in for something I didn’t like. And the other looks have been pretty amazing each week, so I can’t be too surprised.
I’ve already finished my “final entry,” which won’t be entered afterall. But really the reason I did this competition was because I knew it would stretch me and make me think up new ideas. And I did, 6 looks! As I sat in my sewing room sewing away, I couldn’t help but smile and think “Gee, this is fun!” (I don’t say gee in real life, but sometimes I think it.)
There is just something about sewing for girls that is so much more fun than sewing for boys. We try to make sewing for boys just as fun, but let’s be honest, girl clothes take the cake! Here’s a round-up of my 5 entries, including my boy entry, which was fun, just not as fun:
You can see all the posts for them with inspiration and more photos and details HERE.
Thanks for your support during this competition! Your comments mean so much more than the votes!
Anyways, I’m back from my project run and play oblivion and excited to get back to my normal sewing and blogging. I feel so free! I have lots on the agenda for this week! Including: my signature look, a rejected look that I didn’t use, a new pattern or two or three, and a big fat giveaway (hint…I don’t have any girls but now I have 5 cute dresses) ;)
See you later!
I’m so sorry to see you go! I missed voting this weekend or I would have totally voted for you!! Something about your style… I’m just drawn to it, and I’m pretty sure I could pick it out of an anonymous line up… because everything you do, I LOVE!
So.. if you are planning on giving away some of the dresses you made, well, I do have a little girl and I’m pretty sure she needs it. So to avoid writing those LONG giveaway posts I can just give you my address…hehe ; )
Bugger! I was part of the 6% – I loved your neopolitan dress. Bugger. :)
I’m sorry, I loved your neopolitan dress! I so hope you do a tutorial because I would love to make one myself!
I’m so sorry! I think it is darling.
You make beautiful clothes. Are you going to show us your most recent outfit? I’m looking forward to seeing it.
I think your Ruffled Riding Hood is my favorite thing from the entire competition.
I loved the neopolitan dress! I was definitely part of the 6%, so sad you’re out.
Shame your out. But what amazing creations you have made!
the boy entry was my fave!! congrats on making it so far :)

I can’t believe you got booted on the Neopolitan Dress…it’s so adorable!
But, glad to have you back, anyway…you’re a winner in my book!
I love your (fashion) style! And your blogging style! I love logging into my Google reader and seeing that you’ve updated because then I get to read some more seekatesew fun and see beautiful pictures of unique, fun and cute designs. I kind of wish you shipped to Canada from your etsy shop….but maybe it’s better for my bank account that you don’t. :P
Boo!! you were my favorite and I am not just saying it!!
I am glad you feel relief though, phew!
AND hopefully now you just have your creative fire sparked to make what you want!!
why don’t they do one of these competitions for adults, so you can make cute dresses and then give them away to me
Simple Simon & Co
Kate we love you. We really do.
(Except for the 5 minutes when we hated you…Elizabeth called me to tell me you sent in your dress post and it just so happened to be a neopolitan dress…we had just been brainstorming ideas and settled on making neoploitan themed dresses for our girls!!! We were totally bummed! But then when we saw your photos we couldn’t hate you anymore because your dresses were way more creative than our idea and we loved you again. True story.)
We’ll be watching for you signature look.
OH NO! I totally voted for your adorable dress because I think it is so so so cute and creative. Great job on all your outfits, you are so talented!

I was part of that 6% as well. I can’t believe how quickly you were able to be inspired and sew up such adorable outfits. You definitely have a signature style going and it is awesome. And yeah for more blog posts and getting back to “real life”
Darn! Your Neapolitan dress was SO adorable! As for what you said about your last outfit already put together – i’m sure we’d all LOVE to see it! I’ve truly loved all your outfits you’ve done. It’s really an accomplishment to be proud of. :]
Jess@craftiness is not optional
:( I loved your dress! You made it pretty far though, and that’s something to be proud of! You did an awesome job with all your outfits!
Daaaaaaaaarling, Kate!!!! You are mega talented, woman :)
I was so sad to see you go! I was part of the 6% who voted for you! I just LOVED that neapolitan dress soooooooo much!!!
Gutted you’re out! LOVE the dress! Think it was the hardest week last week. All good entries, you have crazy good sewing and design skills though. You’re right to be proud of what you made.
