Let's choose a winner, shall we?

It's time to choose a winner for the Ma Cherie French Knickers Pattern giveaway! So many of you commented with what fabrics and notions you would use to make these that I got online and bought a ton of fabric to sew another dozen versions for myself. Your comments inspired me to sort-of break my monthly sewing budget. (Bad Anna!)

Ma Cherie French Knickers Pattern

But it's time to announce a winner! Everyone's comments were great, which would make it hard to choose but luckily we have a random number generator for that.

Our lucky winner is #36, congratulations to Catja, who commented:
" I have never really sewn with slippery silky fabric before, so this would be a good project to try it out! Wouldn't use up too much fabric, in case it did not work. I would likely make them in ivory with a black trim. Or vice versa, depending on which combination I could find."
Congratulations! You can email me at to claim your prize!

On that note, here is a pair of French knickers by Anthropologie that are almost exactly as Catja described. How cool is it that you can sew what would normally cost you a big handful of cash?

I like the bra too... boy am I inspired to sew lingerie this weekend!
