So the winner was announced
her entry was beautiful containing a lot of beautifully executed hand embroidery and a detailed story of her inspiration.
I was also happy to see my name in the list of those who scored well enough to move on to the next round.
The next challenge is Round 2: ZIPPERS! Show us how you incorporate them not only for
function but also as a creative element in any garment you create for
I have a great many ideas in my head about this but I haven't yet distilled it in any form!
A selection here:-
If I could adapt something already in my plan that would be nice and tidy.
Trousers could have zipped pockets and zips at the ankles
Hoody could have a diagonal zip (I have a suitable Ottobre pattern) but is a bit too cardigan-y after the last round.
Anything could have loads of extra pockets
I buy and wear Craghoppers clothing for travelling. Their clothes don't always fit that well but they do have loads of pockets, I really like my culottes with hidden pockets for warm locations.
I have a Saf-T-Pockets pattern that I could use for the pocket ideas.
A jacket or coat would probably make the most statement, but the colour and zips need to show up well in photos which means probably not my dark navy suiting fabric!
