Teegs' Tessuti Awards entry!

Teegs' Tessuti awards entry - bodice detail (with hand made lace trim!)

If you happen to have been following us on Facebook or Twitter you might have noticed that Teegs has a slight penchant (and talent) for dressmaking. 'Slight' being an understatement. She loves costumery, she jumps at the opportunity to make outfits for balls, cocktail parties and themed dress-up events for both herself and friends, and sometimes her pieces exhibit insane amounts of detail.

So of course when the theme of this years Tessuti Awards was announced as being Linen & Lace (with the first prize being a trip for 2 to New York, OMG) Teegs was right onto it. Linen? Why, we love printing on & sewing with linen! Lace!? Why we happen to have a design called Lace Fans and Teegs just happens to know how to MAKE LACE BY HAND.

The winner of the competition will be decided by the judges, but there is also a People's Choice award, so if you like Teegs' entry then please vote for her! You can read more about her entry and see more awesome pics here.

It's bloody brilliant! The words 'linen and lace' tend to mean 'ugly old grandma clothes' to me, but this is totally the opposite. Of to NY for you, miss!
