I am very new to entering contests, but want to start this year. In looking through the 2012 contests, most are self-explanatory, but I need a little clarification on a couple of them.

I know RTW means Ready-To-Wear, so I assume this means we try to copy a RTW that we like? Are we to find a commercial pattern close to the RTW and tweak it in style, or both style and fabric (match the RTW as much as possible?)

And, I guess that the Best Patterns means the best of a category. Of 2011? Is this something I can start looking at now to get ideas, or details won't be released until closer to the date?

Thanks for any help!

For the RTW (yes ready to wear) contest, you are right. Take a item that you have seen, own already, etc and replicate it. You can use a pattern, draft your own ... Try a search here for previous RTW contests to get an idea.
The rules haven't been set yet for the Best Pattern contest. I imagine (my thoughts only) that they will include a few years worth of Best Of.. Patterns. The 2011 version will be coming out soon, but aren't out yet.
Hope that helps you out! I hope you decide to enter a contest this year!
