The time has arrived! The day for the revealing of the themes is here! Can you tell we are excited? So without further ado…The Themes for Challenge Create: Adult Edition!
1: Nature Inspired
Spring is in the air, and that means everything is springing to life, and so will your fashions this week if they are inspired by nature! Daffodil and crocus bulbs sticking their heads out of the ground, baby animals, soft pastel colors everywhere, and cherry trees spreading the cheer with their gorgeous blossoms. Whatever inspires your design as Spring is sprung will surely make your whole project bloom.
There is nothing quite as satisfying bringing an item back into usable condition. Curtain, tablecloth, hole-y sweater, muumuu, or boyfriend shirt, no matter where you begin, the end result is sure to be amazing when you refashion!
3: (Hint of) Vintage
No question about it, there have been some amazing fashion creations in the past! Which vintage fashion catches your eye? Incorporate something from that into your creation this week. Because unless you have an upcoming Renaissance Revival Fair, no one really needs a whole brocade dress complete with pearls and panniers! (And if you are making a costume for the next Civil War reenactment…bring it on!)
4: Destash Time
Alright, we admit it, we have a
little fabric habit! So if you’re anything like us (we have yet to meet a seamstress who isn’t) you’ll be able to sew from your stash this week. It’s time to open unused patterns, raid the ribbon box (or boxes!) and get out that fabric hoard! You’ll be really glad you did when the prizes are awarded next week and the winners get to stock up all over again with supplies from our generous sponsors!! (Yes, we are encouraging you to both take from and add to your stash, but you understand!)
We hope these themes inspire you as much as they inspire us! We wish we were sewing along, too! So if you’re the kind of seamstress that likes to get a head start: ready, set…go!
Spread the word about Challenge Create: Adult Edition; it’s going to be great!
Make it beautiful,
