Shorts on the Line First Place!!!

And now... the moment you have all been waiting for!!! Our first place Shorts on the Line Judges Choice award goes to Rowan & Oak's beautiful lace apricot bloomers! Amber used an Ottobre Summer '12 pattern, a thrifted duvet cover, and Grandma's hand-me-down lace to create the ultimate feminine shorts for her daughter! They truly are stunning!!!

Amber has won the Ultimate Prize Package from our amazing sponsors:

Aren't those amazing prizes!? We'll be in touch shortly with how to claim them!

Please head on over to Rowan & Oak to give her a virtual pat on the back for winning 1st place!
 And we'd like to thank all of the contestants who entered their shorts into the Shorts on the Line Flickr group this year! We had an amazing turn out with over 100 entries! We truly wish we had prizes for all of you! You all did an amazing, amazing job! Thank you so much to our fabulous judges who gave their time to deliberate who should win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, and to our sponsors for making this sewalong possible! And to YOU, dear reader, for voting for your favorite viewer's choice entry!

I'd like to give a personal thanks to Rachael and Carla for all the hard work they did to make this sewalong so successful and for putting up with me throughout it all!!! We hope you enjoyed this sewalong and that it inspired you to sew up some shorts for the loved ones (or YOURSELF!) in your life!

It's been a blast watching all of your creativity this month! Enjoy the rest of your summer! Thank you!
