[UPDATE 12/12/2012] – Congratulations to BurdaStyle member Justine of Sew Country Chick

Comment on our blog for a chance to win a copy of Alabama Studio Style: More Projects, Recipes, & Stories Celebrating Sustainable Fashion & Living.

In Alabama Studio Style, Natalie Chanin, founder and creative director of the acclaimed fashion and lifestyle company Alabama Chanin, takes readers on a compelling journey of creativity, technique, and inspiration. Picking up where the celebrated Alabama Stitch Book left off, Alabama Studio Style is a craft and lifestyle book all in one.

Here Chanin shares many more of her stitching, stenciling, and beading methods and applies them to twenty extraordinary clothing and home décor projects, each made with organic or recycled materials and designed with “haute homespun” flair. Along with the company’s celebrated camisole and tank dresses, the featured projects include skirts, scarves, pillows, woven chair seats, and a stenciled scrap-wood table. Rounding out the book are recipes for three delicious party menus. Alabama Studio Style shows us that true style encompasses not only what we wear, how we decorate, and what we eat, but also how we care for our environment.

Click here for purchasing info on Alabama Studio Style: More Projects, Recipes, & Stories Celebrating Sustainable Fashion & Living.

For a chance to win this fun and creative book, please answer the following question in the comments section below: What is your favorite time of day to sew?

The deadline for submissions is Monday, December 10, 2012 at 11:59 PM (EST). One lucky winner will be chosen.

Good luck!

    I love to sew at night when everyone else is asleep and there are no distractions.
