Knock it Off Roundup and Prizes



Thank you so very much to each of these talented guests for being such a huge inspiration throughout the series!  They've shown us how it's possible to create designer outfits at home for so much less while still maintaining a professional looking result.  From stencilling to colour-blocking, piping to painting, these ladies did it all and more!



If you missed any of their posts, click on their blog names to catch-up:

The sew-along submissions were also an amazing source of inspiration!  Thank you so much to everyone who submitted an outfit or garment, all of which were obviously made with love (and skill!).  The randomly picked winners of the Gold Star Tools gift cards are:

Annie (Peaches and Bees) who wins a $100 gift card.


Amanda (lilypadmontana) who wins a $75 gift card.
Congratulations to you both!  Please contact me at: eleganceandelephants(at)gmail(dot)com
so I can pass on your information to Gold Star Tools.

Knock it Off - Dotta.

The last day of the Knock it Series is here already and we wrap things up with another jaw dropping re-creation.  If Jo from Dotta. hadn't labeled her photo so well, there's no way I would've been able to tell which was which.  This is some seriously amazing work!  Go see more at Dotta.




All the guests have done an amazing job, and I'm sure they've inspired you!  Look forward to a round up of their looks tomorrow.


We will also have the exciting announcement of the winners of the sew along tomorrow.  You still have time to submit an outfit to the Knock it Off Flickr Group.  Two entries will be selected at random to receive $100 and a $50 gift cards from Gold Star Tools.  The sew-along will close tonight at 10pm PST.
