A Contest for the New Year!!!

Happy New Year to everyone!! 2010 proved to be a very productive year for me. It was actually a bit of a suprise. I truly expected my business to be down a bit, because of (and I hate this phrase) 'the economy'. But my business was fine, as a matter of fact, I was busier than ever.
So - we are going to have a little contest here, to celebrate the blessings that the good Lord has bestowed upon me through my business!
The prize, you ask? Why, something wonderful of course! Something everyone can use, male or female, young or old! I promise, you won't be disappointed! But I don't want to giveit away just yet - you have to play along to find out!
Ok - here goes -
The person who can answer this question, getting the closest without going over, wins! The contest will run for one week. Today is Jan. 1, 2011, so on Jan. 7, 2011, a winner will be announced!
Here is the question -

How many dresses have I worked on this past year? This includes wedding gowns, Mother of the Brides, Bridesmaids, flowergirl, prom, everything.

I will be sending out clues during the week, maybe every other day or so, so be watching! Just come back here and post your answers in comments - make sure you leave your email or contact info !

Also, some ideas I'm working on for the coming year -
What do you think? #1, #2, or #3??

  1. Okay, so I'm submitting my entry! :-) I'm assuming the 13 garments in addition to the wedding-related dresses were also dresses. Which makes my guess 240 garments, Holy Smokes!

    Probably easiest to contact me through PatternReview (I'm Iowa Hoodlum) or my blog if needed.

    As for the dress designs above, I'm most drawn to #2. I recently read all of Jane Austen's novels, and so have been thinking about all the empire waist regency dresses they wore. The books talk about various sorts of muslin fabrics here and there, and so I'm imagining the design in a silk or cotton voile or even the dotted fabric you recently unpacked! 6 yards might be enough for a single layer... The resulting dress could be soft, romantic, airy, demure.
