The contest will begin on October 1 and run until Oct 31st. Items sewn prior to October 1st cannot be entered into the contest
This contest is a little more open than some other PR Contests - while there is no specific breast cancer tie-in, we're leaving it up to you, the members, to decide if you want to take your project in that direction. Maybe you have something to say, or someone to commemorate, or maybe you just want to make a fabulous pink gown a la Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Whichever direction you choose to take, here are a few guidelines to keep the playing field even:
1. The project MUST be predominantly pink.
2. Neutral colors such as black or white or a print can also be part of the project, but the predominant color must be pink.
3. It should be a wearable garment for an adult (male or female).
4. Commercial patterns or original/self-drafted patterns may be used.
5. Any shade of pink is okay.
6. You can enter as many items as you want in the contest.
7. A review is required for each item which is entered in the contest. (If the item is made from the same pattern you've reviewed previously, you can update that review and enter it into the contest or create a new review.)
Voting begins Nov. 2nd and ends Nov. 10th.
First place winner will be decided by member vote. First prize winner will receive a signed copy of 1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts and Tips and a free online class on PatternReview.com
EVERY participants who enters a project in this contest will receive a free pattern from our sponsor - Studio Cherie!
