BEST SPRING TOP 2009 – ASTRID!

The votes have been checked and tallied and the results are in! Congratulations to Astrid from Denmark who won the most votes for her beautiful striped top! Yaaaay!

Astrid made this lovely top from an Ingelise (so sad for me that it’s in Danish!) pattern with lightweight striped cotton and white linen for the yoke and covered buttons. You can see her excellent craftsmanship in some of her pictures (photos from: Astrid’s Flickr):




I love the button detail and the top is just perfect for spring with its airy sleeves and subtle colors. This was one of my favorites so it was fun to see it move into the final ten and then win! And how about that adorable baby! (:

If you haven’t had a chance to go over to Connecting the Dots yet, it’s a lovely place to read about Astrid’s sewing projects and family life (did you know that ducks say “RAP” instead of quack in Danish?). She also has a link up to Onion patterns which I think will be my next European pattern addiction (although I’m not sure anything can touch Ottobre).

Astrid will be receiving a copy of the Toddler Backpack Sewing pattern and some other goodies from me for her prize.

Thanks again to all of you who entered the contest; congratulations to the runners-up, and a very big congratulations again to Astrid!
