    If I have posted about a linen garment I have made on my blog does it constitute "being published"? TIA, Bunny

    Hi Sewista,

    You can enter a garment you have already created and written about on your blog. You will still need to upload the photos of your garment to our contest gallery. Click the link to "Enter your project" at the top of the page and share your photos.

    Thanks,

    Vicky

    Thanks so much, Vicki. I have uploaded a couple of garments. There is some great competition here.

    The little girl's dress is scrumptious. Love the ruched yoke and balloon sleeves. Adorable.
