Lingerie Challenge Contest
October 15 through October 31, 2013

For this contest, sew some lingerie!

Definition
Lingerie, for purposes of this contest, is defined as intimate apparel for women. Intimate apparel is clothing what would be worn as a base layer under clothing (underwear / knickers, bras, cami sets, slips, corsetry) or nightwear appropriate for intimate situations (teddies, babydolls, merry widows, etc). The contest manager has final say on if a garment qualifies as 'lingerie'.

The Rules for this Contest:
1) Sew lingerie that fits the description above.
2) You may enter individual items or sets.
3) More than one entry per person is allowed.
4) A picture of the final garment(s) is required for voting. You do not need to model the garments, but can do so if appropriate. Please remember that this is a family friendly site! Any pictures that are questionable will have the links removed.

General Rules for all Contests
All reviews must be entered for submission by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on the last day of the contest. It is suggested to start your review as a Work In Progress (private or public) so that you can get any bugs ironed out prior to the deadline.
2. Patterns MAY be muslined prior to the start of this contest however; fabric for contest garment may NOT be cut prior to the start of the contest. Fabric may be pretreated before the start of the contest.
3. Items intended for sale, or for which you were or will be paid to make, do not qualify for any contest, but items made for charity are welcome.
4. Unless otherwise stated in the rules, all reviews written for a contest entry must include a picture of the entry, preferably on a live model.
5. Interpretation of rules is subject to the discretion of the contest manager and the contest committee.

Contest Eligibility: ***Rule #1 is changed for 2013
1. Any member of Pattern Review, either paying (FoPR) or non-paying, who is a registered member on the site before the contest begins is eligible to enter.
2. Any member of Pattern Review, either paying (FoPR) or non-paying, who's been a registered member on the site for 90 days prior to the end of a contest is eligible to vote in a contest.
3. Any member who's won first place in a contest on Pattern Review that ended in the previous four-month period is ineligible to win another contest (during that four-month period).

The first, second and third place winners will be decided by member vote. Prizes will be awarded to the first and second place winners.

Prizes for the contest

TO BE ANNOUNCED

Voting guidelines:

Each member can vote on up to five entries.

Voting will begin 2 days after contest closes and will close 7 days after voting starts.

Because of the high quality of the garments we're seeing entered in PR Contests, we're setting forth some guidelines that may help you choose when voting. Consider how well the entry fulfills each of the following criteria in order to narrow down your votes:
1. Does the garment clearly reflect the pattern's line drawing?
2. How well does the garment fit the criteria stated in the contest rules? How well does it fit the spirit of the rules?
3. Are the construction methods, including but not limited to seam finishes, lining techniques, etc, well suited to the design? To the fabric?
4. Is the fabric choice well suited to the design? Are the lining and interfacing choices appropriate?
5. Is the review complete and well written?
6. Taking into account the stated ability level of the entrant, how well does the garment fit?
7. Creative points. You may choose to give extra credit here for an entry that reflects additional creativity (embellishment, fabric choice, etc.) while staying within the nature of the original pattern.
8. Complexity of the project. Relate this to the skill level of the participant. If a participant is a beginner then a princess seam may get the same complexity level as an underarm gusset gets for an advanced sewer. This is purely subjective, but a complex garment might garner more points than a simple one if a tie-breaker is needed.

I bought fabric for new underwear a few weeks ago but I am not sure if I'll find the time to do the sewing this month. I'll try :)

Earlier this year I have drawn a bra using the principes of kristina Shin on bra- drafting, but using my own measures. I want to make one more, because the obtained one is till now my favorite. I have stash to choose from, but have my attention now on the lined jacket.

I have been thinking about a nightie for awhile.
I don't want to make a baby doll or teddy. But I also do not want to make a high necked long sleeved flannel job.
Would a slinky, slightly sexy long nightie qualify?

I'm in. I've been busy with our ASG Annual Meeting today so I didn't get to takie a peek at PR until now. At least now I have time to think about what I want to make. :winkgrin:

I'm going to cuddle up on my couch with "Lingerie Secrets" by Jan Bones and five of her patterns. I bought a couple sports bra patterns from her too, but those won't be as fun to sew for this contest.

The patterns of Jan Bones are fine. I once made her cross-over sportsbra in solid reddish orange lace with a deep blue lining and piping. Very smashing.
Yet there are so many choises possible.
