    All the entries were so amazing, I found voting overwhelming! I am glad these three have won, they are all really good and I did love the Thurman skirt the best, congratulations all of you :) I secretly want to make my own version of your skirt, now I just have to find a really good quote that means something to me.

    I voted for the top winners, so naturally I feel that their accolades are well deserved! But honestly, all of the selections that were presented showed how creative and inspired their creators are by the Alabama Chanin style.

    The Thurman skirt features one of my favorite quotes and I love how it is incorporated into something so special and wearable.

    Thank you for sharing these creations with us so that we can remember to use our own creativity on a daily basis to make the world more joyful to ourselves and others. Peace!
