The Fabricista Fashion Challenge is back for its 5th season!
Follow the Challenge:
August 24, 2017 -- Contestants Announced!
We have six talented sewing bloggers ready to get their sewing machines running and creative juices flowing! The challenge will run from September 1-October 2.
A new challenge will be posted to the public every Friday morning, with the first one being Friday, September 1st. They will have until the following Tuesday night to submit their 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, contestants 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 two "Celebrity Judges" 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 have an opportunity to vote on their favorite. Their vote will be used to help determine a winner also.
Reader Participation: You can play along too! Each week, post photos of your progress and completed challenges. Then when posting to social media, use #Fabricista5 on Facebook and Instagram. We will choose one winner each week to win a prize! (Prizes will be announced each week. Only open to citizens of US only, for shipping purposes.)
Fun All Around! This challenge is meant to be fun (and winning some prizes on top of it) for participants, readers, judges and myself! It is definitely hard to choose the "best" in the group, especially because we are doing everything through photographs and periodic written responses. We'd appreciate keeping comments positive and constructive.
