Choose the Winner of the Mini Wardrobe Contest!By DianeSev on 10/4/12 10:49 AM

Mini-wardrobe Contest Collage

For the past four weeks, Mini Wardrobe Contestants have been working like mad, creating their 5-piece wardrobe.  Now it’s your turn to vote for the wardrobes you love!

This is how the contest worked…

Contestants pick a key item, one they’d love to coordinate their new pieces with.  Then they sew the matching 4 pieces.

There are more details in the rules.  You can read them here.

Here are some tips to help you with voting:

  1. How well does the item fit the criteria stated in the contest rules? How well does it fit the spirit of the rules?
  2. Are the construction methods, including, but not limited to, seam finishes, lining techniques, etc., well-suited to the design? To the fabric?
  3. Is the fabric choice well suited to the design? Are the lining and interfacing choices appropriate?
  4. Is the review complete and well-written?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

We know you want to get started, so click here to go to the Contest Gallery, where you can read the reviews and vote.

See the Contest Report and other important links here.

Voting closes on October 10.

Your vote counts!

When is this site going to join current practices and have a NEXT arrow and keep pictures all on one site? I'm not voting on the wardrobes because the pictures are so darned small that I can't even tell which ones I want to click on. They're just blurs of color, and too many to open individually. What a shame that after all their work, it's about impossible to see the outcomes without a struggle. There have been so many advances in site design and information presentation that the microscopic pictures are a real disservice to those interested in PatternReview. Computers are more powerful and the internet is faster, so why not larger pictures?

I agree completely. It would be wonderful to be able to flip right through all the pictures. I often have to go back to the beginning or give up midway through.

I agree 1,000%...will not open each contestant individually to view....takes too much time. Would rather be sewing.

Yes, I am having trouble too, I can't see them!!! I did try clicking on some of the pictures but nothing happened. Then I went to the reviews and still just a small picture. Is there a way to load their storyboards to a gallery?

I am sorry that this is so frustrating. We are actually working on a site redesign and this is one of the functionalities we will add.
