Fashion Icon Challenge Results (and Sew Along voting is now open)

This first week of Project Sewn was unbelievable!!!
We knew these women were fabulous...but we had no idea just how fabulous.
Each design was amazing!!!!  All so different...all so full of personality!!!
(We CAN NOT wait for next week!)
But today is results let's get down to business.
After combining the popular vote with the contestants scores (remember these ladies get to score each others looks!) the winner of the fashion icon challenge is:

Congratulations Oona!  Your look was so much fun.

And because it is results day we also have to say goodbye to one of talented designers as well.
This week after we tallied the votes and the scores we have to say goodbye to the lovely Lladybird. are AMAZING...the fit of those pants is UNREAL.  Your icon was pure fabulousness and the look you created was totally fantastic.
(Lauren won't be leaving us this week empty handed.  She will be getting a gift card to one of our favorite on line stores...Michael Levine's!)

Now even though we've given you the results we aren't finished yet!
Now, it's time for you to go and vote for your favorite sew along outfit this week!
So go and do that HERE:  Fashion Icon Challenge

And we'll see you all back here on Monday!


  1. loved your outfit Lauren, sad to see you leaving

    btw: the voting doesn't work on my computer yet

  2. OOH, I get a gift card?? HOW AWESOME!! :D

    Thanks so much for letting me participate, ladies! I am sad to leave (although a little relieved to take that stress off ;)), but I am SO excited to see what everyone makes up for the next challenge!

  3. Every week I'm going to be so proud and so sad simultaneously.

  4. Congrats, Oona! What a knockout outfit!

    And Lauren, I'm sooooooo sad to see you leave!! I love your blog - you've been a HUGE inspiration to me as I've been getting back into sewing.

    Can't wait to see more!

  5. Gosh, I don't want anyone to leave! Can't you guys just all be co-winners?!

  6. i'm in shock and also totally bummed! WHAT IS THIS SUPERB CONFLICTION OF EMOTIONS Y'ALL HAVE CREATED ?!!!!

  7. Geez! The fact that Lauren is going home first just goes to show that these are ALL some seriously talented sewists! I loved seeing everyone's inspiration translated into amazing garments, and I don't think anyone truly deserved to go home.

  8. Congrats to Oonaballoona, and sorry to see you go to lauren.

  9. What I love is that each of the entries totally reflect the contestants own personalities. All amazing. Congrats to oona and bad luck Lauren. But what an effort from everyone!

  10. Congratulations to Oona~ I agree. I am so happy for her, and yet so sad for Lauren:(
    This is all very reminiscent of hormonal surges.
    You judges have the toughest job, that is for sure! All these ladies are FABULOUS.

  11. Congrats to Oona! Pictures are amazing, and that is important too when one votes. Maybe that is what left Lladybird behind. She is such a busy seamstress, she did not take much care in the pictures (just like me, hehe), but her job sewing the shirt was admirable. Sorry to see her go!

  12. Results are a truly double edged sword. I loooove Lauren and I'm sad she left. oona did amazing.
