Betty and Lizzy House - A Contest!!!

Lizzy House—a fabric designer for Andover—is sponsoring a dress making contest, and we wanted to play along! We just love the whimsy of Lizzy House fabrics, so we were excited to get our Stonemountain community involved. The main objective of the Lizzy House Dress Contest is to "inject a little joy into your wardrobe and maybe learn a new skill or just show off your wicked style, and create a bit of community doing it."

To enter, use any Lizzy House fabric to make a dress for yourself, a dress for a little one, or any kind of garment for the men in your life.  There's also a category for kids who make a dress themselves!  Then post a picture on Instagram using the hashtag #lizzyhousedresscontest, and if you got the fabric from us, tag us too with #stonemountainfabric!

For our Lizzy House garment, we chose to bring a little "Betty" into our wardrobe. Sew Over It, one of our new indie pattern lines, seemed to be channeling a little style from the ladies in the hit series Mad Men. We loved Betty Draper's on screen spirit and the chic 50's vintage look she inspires.


The Betty Dress reflects that simple 50's style and is the perfect pattern for our Lizzy House dress.

We chose a soft "Meadow blue" cotton lawn for our Betty Dress.

The contest ends on May 20th.  We have a great selection of Lizzy House fabrics in the store for you to choose from, so drop by soon and join in the "make it yourself" fun! After all, it IS Me Made May!!!  Just make sure to tag your completed look with #lizziehousedresscontest and #stonemountainfabric.

We'll post pics on Instagram and Facebook when ours is finished.  Stay tuned!!

Creatively Yours,
