Pattern Review Wardrobe Contest Completed

Weekend to Work Wardrobe & War of the Wovens




I was able to complete the Pattern Review wardrobe contest by deadline. I am so happy to have participated and completed this project. Unfortunately, I decided to start during the last month of the contest, which cut my work time down to a third. Still, I was able to use 2 tops that I had made in October, since it followed the PR challenge guidelines.

I used this challenge as a way to get better accustomed to woven projects. I have always leaned towards knit fabrics for ease of wear and sewing. Now that I've been doing this for a year and a half, I want to push myself a bit. That means full bust alterations, zippers, and yes - wovens. lol. I really feel good about what I made and am happy that the wardrobe is already getting great use.

My knitting is not going as well - I went down one needle size too many for my Anemoon hat and have to restart. No worries, I'll keep plugging away. Now that the PR competition is completed, I'll try to divide my time between both knitting and sewing....of course I just scheduled my trip for a 7-day Caribbean cruise for February and will need to start sewing my cruise attire....this contest shows me that I only need a month to do it! lol - BTW - if you are feeling my wardrobe, your welcome to vote for me on PatternReview.com.
