  1. I think that this is the most difficult challenge so far. Warning: Opinion Ahead. I think that most of the garments made from vintage patterns (e.g., 1940s, 1950s) that I've seen on the Internet look like costumes. I say on the Internet because I don't know anyone IRL who dresses this way. Making it fashion forward is one of the criteria of the judging? I guess I don't quite appreciate the point of this challenge. But I will stay tuned, and I wish all the contestants well.
