What? A plain blue shirt won over this? Ridiculous! Anyone can have family, friends and followers vote to gain the win. Judging system MUST BE JURY PANEL ONLY! Not fair to the REAL winner of this beautiful work of art.

This, with its complex pattern and all the hand-sewing, and the SCA tunics with their heraldic applique' work, are all MUCH more deserving of awards than the simple blue tunic which won. That Gary must have a HUGE mailing list...

They had a lot of fans. That's totally ok. I'm happy for them and their voters. I asked my friends to vote for me, as I'm sure they did. Networking can work wonders! Don't get me wrong- I'm extremely happy I won as well. :)

I voted for you and as far as I’m concerned, your creation is head and shoulders above the "winner." If you weren’t chosen, there were others who also deserved it. I won’t be voting next time because the contest was obviously rigged.

Your dress is absolutely beautiful Christine. I see a lot of accomplished designers here, great workmanship but this contest is a joke and I'm not laughing.

I'm stunned that a blue, unfitted shirt won over this complex, beautiful, researched work of art. This should have won.

Elise: This pattern is available through several sources. Although I end up redrafting many patterns for my own use since I'm short but... Endowed. Lol

Thank you all so much for your support! As a full time seamstress and reenactor, it's been great having my work seen by those who don't get to events. Now that I'm adding block printing to my repertoire I think this piece needs some borders. Thanks all!

Can't believe a blue shirt that anyone with a minimal amount of seeing knowledge can put together in less than an hour won this.
