Oh Happy Birthday, Jorth! I've been dying to see more of your Liberty print dress in the peeksie post below, so imagine my delight when I saw that you're giving away some of the fabric. Have been reading your blog ever since Tessuti featured your Vogue 8511 dress on their blog. AND...you have inspired us to make many a Vogue 8511 dress ourselves :)

Hope you have the bestest, lovliest birthday!

Happy Birthday! Your blog is inspiring and the Liberty fabric is so lovely. Thanks for posting the giveaway.

Kimberly  – (2:58 am)  

Happy Birthday! I've been ready your blog for awhile, but just became an official "follower." Guess a fabric give-away was all it took :-)

Enjoy your special day!

Justine  – (4:16 am)  

Happy belated Birthday!

Your beautiful dresses have inspired me to start creating some of my own -- thanks for the wonderful blog posts!

Happy Birthday, I would love to hold an authentic Liberty Print. I've never been near one, let alone sewn with it. annioneill at yahoo dot ca

Fran  – (5:05 pm)  

Happy Birthday lovely lady, hope you were spoiled silly.

Love that fabric with a vengeance.........

Twisted Fabric  – (6:42 pm)  

Happy belated Birthday. The fabric is gorgeous :-).

Mademoiselle M.  – (2:50 am)  

With a few delay, happy birthday, Jorth! I follow your blog since a while now (I'm totally in love with your one shoulder dress in Liberty) but I'd never dared to post a comment because of my not-so-good english...May I play too??

melissanearandfar  – (12:20 pm)  

Happy birthday!

You certainly do have a way with fabrics.

amelia  – (3:31 pm)  

OH. MY. GOD. this fabric is so drool-worthy...i was just checking it out in a store in another color the other day. please count me in and happy birthday!

ruby dawn  – (3:53 pm)  

Follow your blog every day. Have made Vogue 8511 (better with long legs) and some Grumbles dresses for five-year-old twins. Now really want that lovely Liberty!

littlebetty  – (4:23 pm)  

Happy birthday - love the dress, love the fabric! I'd have to learn to sew jersey before cutting into special stuff like this, but it is on my list of things to do.

Catherine  – (4:53 pm)  

happy birthday!

Action Girl !  – (5:00 pm)

El Thomas  – (5:50 pm)  

Happy (belated) birthday. It's a palindrome! Is it rude to just follow you 'cause you've got cool stuff? If so, sorry! Coveting that Liberty, though..

Maistar  – (6:17 pm)  

Happy Birthday Jorth!

A very belated happy birthday, I celebrated just three days after you.

I discovered your blog on Tessuti's blog and I'm so happy I did. I'm a follower now.

beeware  – (12:30 am)  

Happy birthday young thing! You have a lovely blog which I discovered thru Tessuti a while back when you made a cute Japanese seersucker dress for your daughter. I will whip over & become a follower now!
That Liberty jersey looks stunning- I have stroked it in the Sydney store. Very wearable!

Happy Birthday! What a great age! I am 33 as well. What a gorgeous piece of fabric. I would definately make your wrap dress if I won this.
