Hello everyone,

I will be managing this contest, so here are the rules for those who need to plan ahead.

The idea behind this contest is to keep things simple. 4 outfits, to create a 4 piece wardrobe, plain and simple, no twists etc.

The rules:


"Mini Wardrobe Contest"
March 16 to April 15, 2010


This is a contest to create a 4-piece wardrobe in 4 weeks. You will determine what clothing pieces you use in your wardrobe.

The 4 garments must combine (without adding additional garments) to create at least 4 distinct outfits.

Choice of garment types and styles is entirely up to you!

Optional Storyboard: You may include a storyboard, or plan, showing the planned garments and the minimum quantity of outfits.

Entrants must do an individual review for each pattern used (can update previous reviews). The actual contest entry review is a the "composite review" for the mini-wardrobe itself. The composite review must have links to the individual reviews. (If all items are from one wardrobe pattern, one review will suffice.)

Pictures are required for voting. Final garments may be pictured on a dress form or worn by the garment's intended owner. Please consult with the contest moderator if neither of these is feasible for you, and options will be discussed.

This wardrobe/ensemble may be created for men, women, or children. Doll clothing is not admissible. Accessories do not count as one of the 4 items, but may be made and showcased with the mini-wardrobe.

Prizes!
Sponsored by


First Prize: $100 GC, Random Drawing Prize $50 GC.

1st place winner determined by popular vote.
There will also be a Random Drawing prize winner.


Voting guidelines - points to keep in mind when you vote - are, in no particular order: wardrobe versatility (is it wearable and do pieces complement each other well?), garment construction/ skill of design and craftsmanship, designer creativity, and presentation.



*Rules that apply to all contests:

1. All reviews must be entered for submission by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on the last day of the contest. Contest dates will be listed for each contest.

2. Unless otherwise stated in the rules, patterns may be drafted, tweaked, and muslined before the contest date, but fabric for the pieces entered may not be laid out or cut till the start date of the contest. Fabric may be pretreated before the contest date.

3. Items intended for sale, or for which you were or will be paid to make, do not qualify for any contest, but items made for charity are welcome!

4. Unless otherwise stated in the rules, all reviews written for a contest entry must include a picture of the entry.


Contest Eligibility

1. Any member of Pattern Review, either paying (FoPR) or non-paying, who's been a registered member on the site for 90 days prior to the start of a contest is eligible to enter.

2. Any member of Pattern Review, either paying (FoPR) or non-paying, who's been a registered member on the site for 90 days prior to the end of a contest is eligible to vote in a contest.

3. Any member who's won 1st place in a contest on Pattern Review that ended in the previous 4 months is ineligible to win 1st place for that 4 month period.


Good luck, and looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

I tend to be the silent type, but will be checking the topic at least daily, so feel free to contact me on the board, or by PM as needed.

So would this mean no toppers (ie jackets, cardi's)
Can it be 3 tops and 1 bottom that coordinate?

If so, I would only really have 3 looks (unless the other is topless)and I'm not posing pics of that

3 dresses and an overshirt?

2 tops and 2 bottoms, I suppose would be easiest.

So I guess, you could do 2 tops and 2 bottoms, 1 top, 2 bottoms and a jacket/ cardigan...my head hurts...

3KB,
I think that would only give you 3 different outfits, no? ... Unless you wear the overshirt like a dress - well, in which case, I guess you'd be making 4 dresses. Oh well, it's a mind bender. We're back to 2 tops and 2 bottoms, I think. --Lily

So glad this thread finally up...I have been excitedly planning this weekend my wardrobe...LOVE planning collections. At first I was going to do a dress, jacket pants and top but guess that wont work. So its going to be a jacket that can be worn alone, ie neckline not too low, top, skirt and pants. I have THE hardest time editing...had about 12 items picked LOL, prolly do a Phase II. Colours will be " Azalea and Spring Lime Green". These are in the print . The print is actually 2 prints made to go together, one lime green background with azalea (magenta purple) flowers and other has this darker purple as background with the lime flowers.
Next up to take pix...still finalizing patterns...must do muslins.

I guess you could do a dress, jacket, blouse and pants.

In that case you would have: dress=1, dress + jacket=2, pants + blouse=3 and pants + blouse + jacket=4.

I'm going to have to think about this to figure out what other combos might work.

I'm glad the rules were posted now so I could do some planning!

I am so excited about this contest! I have been planning my outfits in my head. I enetered last year when I was a total beginner and it practically killed me, so I'd like to try again now I have a vague clue.

The timing is terrible for me. Our house is being sold from under us, meaning constant open for inspections, we are going to my brother in law's wedding in Alice Springs, and we are having visitors all in the time frame! Oh yeah, and I'm trying tp write up my PhD =) When I told my husband I wanted to enter again he laughed out loud and said I was crazy!

I think I'm going to do it though =)

Wow ClaireEmily, you're a gutsy woman! Go for it! If they are easy items, you could definitely do it in that time frame! I haven't been a member for 90 days so I can't enter.There's always next year. I'm busy taking classes right now, but I'm thinking of sewing along with the contest anyway.

I haven't been a member long enough either, but like you, I plan on sewing along for the fun of it.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
