The Liebster Award and von Furstenberg knockoff

Some time ago, Cyberdaze gave me the Liebster Award (for underread bloggers, if I understand correctly) and now that it's my turn to pass it on, I find myself in a quandry. Every blogger I like is read over the limit of 200 followers.
Worse, this award asks that I find not one, but eleven people to tag, with no "tag backs."

Well, I'm not getting far with this, and for weeks I've randomly looked for blogs. Now, I'm crying "uncle" and I'm begging for nominations from all of you out there, preferably sewing blogs that we all need to discover; no language requirement, (e.g. I'm discovering so many good Russian and German sewists through Burda.ru, but I can't read Russian and can't determine their eligibility level!)

Meanwhile, Diane Von Furstenberg's site for this season showed the new dress above which looked awfully familiar. Check out Burda April 2011. The DVF dress seems to feature more skirt and less bodice but they're awfully alike in spirit.
Hmm, I'm tempted, although the armpit-high leather gloves are a little offputting.


  1. Here are some smaller ones I follow:-
    I'm sure how many followers they have but it's a start for you

  2. Great dress. It would look lovely on you. I like the two different shades of teal.

  3. Those dresses are spookily similar. I don't remember the Burda one at all but I must have the issue somewhere. Good spot!

  4. Glad it's got that built in camisole bit!
