Fashion Challenge 5 Call For Entries!



September is right around the corner and that means the Fabricista Fashion Challenge is back! 

We're looking for 6 enthusiastic sewing bloggers to participate in the Fabricista Fashion Challenge 5! This is a month long sewing challenge where you will be given a weekly project to complete to the best of your abilities. Each week will have a criteria for judging and will be judged by some of your favorite personalities in the sewing industry. 

Details: 
The entire sewing time for the challenge will run from September 1-28. A new challenge will be posted to the public every Friday morning, with the first one being Friday, September 1st. You will have until the following Tuesday night to submit your entries, so that on Wednesday morning I can post the finished projects.     
     
There will be a total of 4 challenges and they will be posted on: Friday, Sept 1, 8, 15, 22.

Judging: 
Each week, you will be given a set of criteria. This will change slightly each week but usually will include fit, quality, craftsmanship and creativity. Each week there will be at least one "Celebrity Judge" on the panel. Along with myself, we will chat about how each person met the criteria and select a winner of the challenge. Readers will also be able to vote and those votes will be tallied into the final vote.

Reader Participation: 
Not interested in being part of the entire challenge? You can still play along! Each week, post photos of your completed projec on social media using #Fabricista5. (Facebook & Instagram.) We will choose one winner each week to win a prize! (Prizes will be announced each week. Only open to citizens of US and Canada, for shipping purposes.)
