Contest: The One Yard Challenge     Managed By: Sarsez
  Photo Pattern Used Points Items Made Yardage Used Description Last Updated
1 Simplicity:50's aprons (Accessories) 1 1.000 1.000 Please read the review - This is a 1 yard Vintage apron with 6 yard of bias -- Irony at it's best ;-) Anyone need any Lilac bias? Already sewn together and ironed! 5/10/12 8:55 PM
2 Colette Patterns:Sorbetto (Tops) 2 2.000 2.000 A great no-sleeve Sorbetto top (I cut a size 6) from 100% cotton in a light lilac. I made the dark purple shorts (cut size Medium from KwikSew old lingerie pattern) using only 7/8th yard! Then I had to have a hat right? This was a video on how to make the Pill Box Hat Steam Punk style I think, with scrap felt I had, bias tape, old button from too many, and feathers taken off old marti-gras masks. 5/7/12 9:07 PM
3 Kwik Sew:Clutch Purse (Accessories) 1 1.000 0.500 Large sized Clutch Purse fussy cut using a lovely wine colored Silky Brocade outside, scrap Silk Essence Antique Gold for the lining with a Velcro closure. 5/6/12 1:50 AM
4 Kwik Sew:Camisole Top and Pants/Shorts (Lingerie) 2 2.000 2.000 Batiste Cotton Top and Red/White/Blue Star shorts - each 7/8th of a yard -- I did my first mock and liked this pattern right away! The princess seams in the top give it a nicer look, and I really like the length of the shorts (though they are normally made for Lingerie?) I'm keeping this pattern as my favorite shorts now. The Cami with the double hearts is made from Batiste cotton and MUCH too sheer to wear and take a photo -- The double hearts design came with this pattern. I don't count the mock I made, just the Batiste cami and shorts. 5/6/12 0:39 AM
5 Other:Market Tote (Accessories) 1 1.000 1.000 A Market tote - I made mine from reversible upholtery fabric and love to play Match with the lines - but as shown in the review link, you can make this from plain, clean lines, to fancy and frilly! Great large sized Tote. 5/6/12 0:33 AM
6 Butterick:Jumper & Top (Tops) 2 2.000 2.000 From Butterick 1986's Jumper and Top. I made View A a short sleeve top. Had to do it twice (a) because I liked this top and (b) because I was determined to learn WHAT they wanted the bias to do around the neckline -- 2nd time around I got the AH HA! Neckline slits? 5/5/12 11:57 PM
