On a whim, I signed up for what I knew to be an all Canadian bra making blog tour back in early July. I was able to convince my Sewing friend and fellow blogger Valérie to join in as well.
Fast forward a few months and the tour is finally here. The tour is officially called Canada Cups - Cross Your Heart Relay. It's also sort of an East vs. West of which more will be revealed in the next few days. Check out fellow Canadian, and local bra making celebrity Beverly Arsenault-Johnson's post introducing the tour here. Oh and how cool is this, Beverly's nickname is "The Fairy Bra-Mother". Here are a few sneak peaks of my post for tomorrow.
Valérie and I have become online friends over the last year as we always seem to meet in various pattern testing groups. We even started our blogs within a week of each other only 7 short months ago! Valérie has put in an amazing effort to make Élégantine into a lovely blog with gorgeous photos of her children and sewing creations. I am slightly jealous of the absolute quality of her blog but am also extremely happy for her and always love to see her new creations and posts.
One of the pattern designers both Valérie and I have tested for is Terri from Sew Straight and Gather. Terri is also Canadian and I absolutely love her patterns. Check out one of my favourite dresses the Women's Uptown/Downtown Dress modeled here by both Valérie and Myself. We decided it would be fun to sew up different versions of the same dress and even more important than that, we each have a copy of this dress (or a different pattern of your choice) to giveaway courtesy of Terri! Leave a comment below and head on over to Valérie's post to leave a comment there as well. Winners will be chosen tomorrow, September 12th, by random number generator and included in our blog posts.
