2022 Luxury Loungewear Challenge and Sweepstakes

We challenged Threads Digital Ambassadors Pamela Howard and Gilbert Muniz, along with guest ambassadors Melissa Fehr and Hannah Hamill, to create luxury loungewear. Their creations needed to be super comfy for relaxing at home, yet put together and stylish enough for activities in public.

Learn how these experts interpreted this challenge while creating beautifully sewn, casual clothes. Then vote for your favorite.

See the Luxury Loungewear Challenge ensembles here.

Pamela Howard created a five-piece collection of tailored knit garments. In a second post, she explains how she lined her sweater knit jacket and created a top with a smooth V-neck edge using binding and mitering the center front.

Hannah Hamill sewed a five-piece mix-and-match ensemble made of silk crepe de Chine and a wool-blend knit. She offers tips for preparing and sewing with silk as well as fitting loungewear while removing a pattern’s darts.

Gilbert Muniz designed a two-piece outfit featuring a loose-fitting, flutter-sleeve top and leggings, with power mesh side-seam strips. He shares his tips for stabilizing knit seams here.

Melissa Fehr made separates using sustainably produced, luxe fabrics she purchased from small businesses. She discusses some of the details she included in her ensemble, such as pickstitching and flat piping here.
