Name that Dress Giveaway Winner!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Name that Dress" Giveaway contest.  It was very entertaining for me.  By the way, surprisingly I got an A on the dress.  I know, totally didn't deserve it.  I don't think she graded on whether it was a good design or not.  I got some points taken off for side seam balance and the fact that I didn't add elastic to stabilize the bodice around the neckline.  Frankly, I got annoyed and decided not to do it even though I know I was supposed to.  

There were a few really funny name suggestions.  My favorite was Lady Be Good's suggestion of "Macrape, "but she didn't want the pattern.  I also enjoyed "Revenge of the Turds" by Thorup. But, in the end, I chose:

livebird!!! with the suggestion of Muck-rame.   The name is cute, and I think captures the essence of my icky, icky dress.

Livebird, please email me at:   rofishman gmail *dot* com with your address and I will get the pattern out to you sometime next week :)  You have until next Thursday, Aug. 18th at 6pm PST to claim your pattern.  

Thanks again everyone who participated and for your words of encouragement.

Here's a funny picture of Pearl taken a long time ago that I forgot I had.  I hope I haven't posted it before:


  1. LOL those are good names :O)... Pearl looks like she has had a hard day and is not relaxing!

  2. oops is now relaxing I meant,, geesh typos

  3. Muckrame is cute and of course so is Pearl!

  4. Aw shucks. Your acknowledgement is all the reward I need! Glad you got an A. I think the problem with the dress was lack of interest, not lack of talent.
