Active Wear Contest
January 1 through 31, 2011
Create some activewear for yourself or others! Activewear must be intended for an active situation.
All work on the garment(s) must be done in January 2011. (Pattern can be one previously used.) The review must include the following:
- Description of the garment
- The intended use of the garment
- Why the garment qualifies as active wear
- The fabric choice and why it is appropriate for the intended use
- What features (fabric, cut, design, features) differentiate this from garments for other functions
There must be something about the garment that differentiates it from everyday clothing or casual lounge wear. The contest manager will be asked to remove entries that do not seem to meet the contest criteria, so make certain you explain why your item does meet the requirements.
There will be one 1st place winner to this contest, determined by popular vote. There will also be one random drawing winner, from all finished qualified entries.
First Prize: $100 Gift Certificate to purchase patterns at Studio Cherie
Random Entry Prize: Three patterns of the winner's choice from Studio Cherie.
