Announcing the Winners of the One Pattern, Many Looks Contest!By DianeSev on 2/19/13 2:26 PM

Doesn’t it seem like a waste to buy a pattern and never use it again?  Wouldn’t it be great to sew many garments from it (getting your money’s worthSmile) and never look like you’re wearing the same thing over and over again?

Enter the “One Pattern, Many Looks” Contest!  The 61 contestants in this competition had to take one view of a pattern, and create multiple garments with distinct looks from that view, without needing pattern drafting skills.  There were guidelines on what changes were allowed in creating the garments.  See the rules for more detail.

When you look at the gallery photos, you will be green with envy with all the choices these contestants now have in their wardrobes!  

Let’s meet the winners!

First Prize (by Member Vote): treefrog for Other: Merckwaerdigh BHS10 Bras

First Prize (by Member Vote): One Pattern, Many Looks Contest

treefrog took a different course in her contest entry…she made bras!  And not just any bras…but gorgeous bras!

She says that the instructions are brief and fairly easy.  And she found an excellent tutorial on constructing this bra. 

The downside…each bra took a ton of time to construct.  She says, “I reckon I could make a pair of jeans with all the trimmings in less time than it takes to put one of these together!! I did get a bit faster with practice and it helped sewing multiples that used the same colour threads. But there is still a considerable investment in time to make one of these. Thankfully I won't need to make any more for a while.”

treefrog writes extensively in her review about each one of the 13 bras she made for this contest.  Read more about these bras. 

Congratulations, treefrog! You’ve inspired us all!

Goosegreen's Tshirts a really good example of what this contest is all about, and Treefrog's bras are just plain impressive. Hours and hours of sewing in the stinking hot Australian summer deserves the prize! Fantastic Aussie one two.

Really deserving wins for both Treefrog and goosegreen....though I'm not sure how we whittled down the field to just two winners. Everyone did a great job. Great inspiration for the rest of us. Congratulations, everyone.

Though I wear them myself, I tend to think that knit Tshirts are pretty boring garments. Goosegreen proves just how wrong I am. As for the bras, just amazing. I'm inspired to try them myself, but I have simply no idea where to even find the fabric for them.

OMGoodness! Both of these projects are wonderful! I wish I had the skills and patience to make myself the bras. Goosegreens t-shirts are a wonderful collection and something I could and would do for myself! Thanks to both of you for all the inspiration. Congratulations to them and all entrants.
