We were absolutely delighted to be awarded as a Telstra Business Awards Victorian State Finalist for the 3rd year running this year!

Telstra Business Awards 2019 Maree Pigdon Sewing Centre 05

We would like to thank all our students and customers, our online community, our team of teachers and friends and family for all your support.

For the occasion, I made myself a new dress from the Vintage Vogue Pattern 2903.

I made it from a cardinal red delustered stain. I lengthened the skirt to full length, created a new bodice midriff panel, re-shaped the neckline to suit me and used the long sleeve.

I made a petticoat with 3 tiers of netting and finished with a poppy print chiffon draped over the bust line and over the shoulder.
