Month: January 2016

Pinterest Red Dress

I’m still not sure what I’m going to do for the contest just yet and I need to get on the ball since the start date is only a few days away. I decided to put together a pinterest board of some ideas, now not all of the dresses are red, some just have a detail about them I just really like and maybe might include in my design. Here is a preview, I’m still working (pinning) on it so it still a work in progress but do follow along.

It’s Sew Time

It's Sew Time

So it’s been a quite couple of months here on the blog but God Willing that will change. I already had a lot ¬†planned in the coming months and ¬†with Patternreview announcing its 2016 contest it only added more but in a good way. There are about 7 contest I want to try but my aim will be at least 4. Hopefully I can get it done and share it here with you.

First up are two contest that just had to share the same start date, the Little Red Dress contest and the Wardrobe contest. Now almost two years ago around this same time in 2014 I entered the Little White Dress contest and really enjoyed making my dress and I still wear it. Like then I would like to use my own pattern if possible but I want to up the game a little and challenge myself some more. It also helps that red is one of my favorite colors to wear. Then there is the wardrobe contest, it is quite possibly my favorite type of contest of all. I love seeing all the different coordinating outfits someone has made, and how two different people can take the same patterns or fabric and make it their own.

It has been awhile since I done a wardrobe contest, but since I already plan to sew at least most of my clothes anyway so a contest would just make it a little more interesting. I’m currently working on two maybe three skirt patterns that I plan to include in my wardrobe a wrap skirt and a A-line skirt, both will be maxi length.

So how about you, have any sewing contest plans coming up? I would love to hear.

Until next time,happy sewing…
