Kathy Perchard

As soon as Kathy Perchard saw the pattern for her winning Ready to Wear dress, designed by none other than the wonderful Kate and Rachel from The Fold Line, she knew she had to make one of her own! Her inventive take on the Joni dress has flattering pleats and cute contrasting button placket, cuffs and collar, thoughtfully incorporating a gorgeous grey and green cotton print that she picked up from a Walmart during a holiday to the States. Says Kathy, ‘I’m genuinely flattered to have been chosen by the judges as the winner for this category.’
