Jacket for Our Next Challenge

Kwik Sew 3460
I already sent this announcement via email, but I should put it on the blog as well, shouldn’t I??

The jacket for next year’s challenge will be Kwik Sew 3460. The plan is to showcase our creative talents — we will all start the same but we will end up with unique results. I don’t have an exact deadline for when this challenge will be due, but it will be before the ASG conference in Houston (August 17–19, 2012).

Update: The jacket challenge is due July 19!

Pattern Options for the Next Challenge

April 24, 2011 2 comments

Suzy proposed that all of us make a garment using the same pattern as our next challenge. Below are some possibilities—if you have others you’d like to add, please let me know. I’ve noted whoever showed/suggested the pattern in parentheses.

You can find reviews of some of these patterns (probably not all, though I haven’t checked) at Pattern Review. This site a great resource for information about patterns and sewing. You might have to join to access the older pattern reviews, but the basic membership is free.
