Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Name that Dress" Giveaway contest. It was very entertaining for me. By the way, surprisingly I got an A on the dress. I know, totally didn't deserve it. I don't think she graded on whether it was a good design or not. I got some points taken off for side seam balance and the fact that I didn't add elastic to stabilize the bodice around the neckline. Frankly, I got annoyed and decided not to do it even though I know I was supposed to.
There were a few really funny name suggestions. My favorite was Lady Be Good's suggestion of "Macrape, "but she didn't want the pattern. I also enjoyed "Revenge of the Turds" by Thorup. But, in the end, I chose:
livebird!!! with the suggestion of Muck-rame. The name is cute, and I think captures the essence of my icky, icky dress.
Livebird, please email me at: rofishman
gmail *dot* com with your address and I will get the pattern out to you sometime next week :) You have until next Thursday, Aug. 18th at 6pm PST to claim your pattern.
Thanks again everyone who participated and for your words of encouragement.
