I am so excited to announce February’s wardrobe challenge winners! In case you didn’t notice, the competition is getting fierce – check out the Wardrobe Challenge flickr page and you will see some talented designers!
Thanks again to all the sponsors in this year’s challenge!
It took a little longer than expected to get February’s results, simply because a few of the judges were on spring break, thankfully that only happens once a year :) Now we are back on schedule!
February’s challenge had to do with ruching and shirring. I am absolutely amazed at the creativity showing up on the pinterest boards. Looking for inspiration? Each month we are all focused on the same design element and it is really fun to scan the #wardrobechallenge boards.
The new flickr page is showing off all your sewn garments and is absolutely fabulous! This is where the wardrobe challenge is coming to life. To show off your work, notice the photos showing up here on the blog. Maybe you will give us tips on achieving the same look.
Before we get to the winners, quite a few of you asked:
Do I need to have a pinterest board and flickr page? No. The prizes will be divided up amongst both places each month. That being said, this is a wardrobe challenge and the grand prize winner of the Brother PQ1500 sewing machine will need both.
Congratulation to Eve Kovacs the winner of February’s challenge and winner of Threads Insider Membership for one year!
This jacket was the kicker – fabulous design and gorgeous detailing. Eve, everyone is going to want to know what pattern and any tips for sewing with this challenging fabric. Can you share some tips for us in the comments :) I personally want to buy this fabric, where did you get it?
