1) Winner: Congratulations to Aleah of No Time to Sew for winning May's knit stashbusting challenge! She says she's not good at improv while sewing, but if this darling dress is what results from sewing on the fly, well, I say she needs to do more of it! Pop me an email, so we can send you a little something!
2) Winner: Beth of SunnyGal Studios gets to take a crack at tracing that umm, rather intense pattern sheet from Modellina Facile! Let me know what your address is so I can send you your prize and you can get to tracing...because goodness knows, following those lines is going to take long enough.

3) Question: Have you ever put a knit lining into a woven dress? I want to make a sheath dress from the gold lace I have leftover from making Elaine's wedding dress, but obviously the lace is see-through. I've got a cream-colored jersey that would make a nice underlay, but I'm not sure if mixing stretch/non-stretch is a big sewing no-no. Thoughts, sewasauruses?
