A Night with friends in "A Little Black Dress"

I had a great evening last night.  Sewing, good friends, new friends, designer fabric and food were involved ~ the perfect kind of evening in my book!  Well hey y'all know I'm obsessed!  *LOL*  I attended the Little Black Dress Party for PR Day at Elliot Berman's!

I'm gonna lead with pictures because thanks to my handy iPad I actually took a few...

The contestants from the "Design It!" Contest
Kathleen & Liesl

Claudine, Kyle, Mary, Liesl, Bonny and Sharon

Liesl and Michael

I did have a wonderful conversation with Liesl who is the owner of Oliver & S Patterns about grading her new women's line, Liesl + Co., up to plus sizes. Thanks Liesl for putting up with me and letting me make my point!  See her new women's line, here!

Holding the winnings ~ fabric goodness!

Me, Clio & Deepika

 ...and this is what I won for answering a question...Valentino was the answer...



2 yards of amazing Missoni goodness!

Finally, Kathy Marrone, the Editor of Vogue Pattern Magazine and I spent quality time talking about sewing.  Peoples, this was truly the highlight of my evening especially when she said that she reads my blog!



It was a great evening with friends, however, please check out my fellow bloggers take on the evening....Clio - Clio & Phineas, Peter - Male Pattern Boldness, and my date for the evening ~ the awenessness herself, Oonaballoona!

A special thanks to Matthew and Eugenia proprietors of Elliot Berman Textiles for hosting such a wonderful event and giving away such great fabric gifts!

Peter's cousin Cathy won "The Best Little Black Dress" contest and won an awesome piece of Chanel Tweed.  Seriously Peter if you aren't making Michael a jacket from that tweed we really need to talk! *LOL*

I'll be spending the evening and most of tomorrow in the sewing cave, my Vogue pattern arrived and I'd like to have a new dress before the weekend is over!!!

...as always more later!
