Enter to Win: Fancy Fabric Challenge
It’s that time of year when holiday parties abound and fancy events seem to pop up at a moment’s notice. For sewers, it begs the question of not only what to wear, but of course what to sew? For this challenge, we want to see your fanciest garments made from the fanciest fabrics. Maybe yours is a floor length, number awash in sequins, or it’s a short, flirty frock made in silk charmeuse. Whatever your best-dressed style, now’s the time to show it off!
To enter the Fancy Fabric Challenge, upload a photograph of a special occasion garment you’ve made from one of the following: Satin, Lace, Beaded fabrics, Sequined fabrics, Embroidered fabrics, Sparkled fabrics, Metallic fabrics, Brocade, Velvet, Shantung, Organza, Taffeta, Charmeuse and Lamé to the challenge gallery. Garments can be newly made, or something you have made in the past. Entries must be uploaded between 12:01 am ET on November 23rd and 11:59 p.m. ET on January 4th, 2010.
Be sure to include details about your garment including what fabric you used and the techniques you used in constructing your garment. We’ll choose the top 5 finalists based on the mastery of construction techniques shown and the design that best accentuates the fabric being used. We’ll be judging from a photograph only so be sure to show us the details of your work. Then you pick the winner! We are letting ThreadsMagazine.com readers vote to choose the winner out of the 5 finalists.
The winner will be announced on or about January 15th, 2010.
Best of luck and happy sewing!
