EvaDress 1930's Pattern Challenge!

Alexandra Reynolds 1930s EvaDress Pattern Challenge! EvaDress Patterns

Examples made from 1930's EvaDress Patterns
The 1930's is a fashion decade of great variety and significant firsts. In particular, women's wardrobe choices seemed limitless from new-fangled suits and sportswear to décolletage evening gowns. The 'official' street trouser and the natural waistline as we now know them were first established. 

This is a sewing pattern challenge to create men’s or women’s garments from 1930’s EvaDress patterns. Accessories (hats, bags, etc.) are not counted as an individual project, but may accompany garments in a submission. Participants may each enter more than one project for this challenge.

Projects may not be started earlier than 12:01 a.m. EST on January 1, 2018 although a muslin for fitting may be created any time before the challenge kick-off date. No purchase necessary to enter, so 1930's EvaDress patterns from stash are fair game! The closing date to submit projects is 11:59p.m. EST on March 10, 2018. 

The better the garment is fit, the higher consideration for placing as a finalist.

Depending on the number of entries, a few finalists will be selected based on quality of construction (construction detail shots are a must), accuracy to the challenge guidelines and overall design with projects remaining devout to the original pattern style lines. 
One top finalist will receive a $150 non-expiring gift certificate good toward total purchase (with tax and/or shipping) at EvaDress Patterns. 
Emily Stringham of Emily's Vintage Visions will join the challenge as a guest juror! 

Projects submitted to other challenges are welcome, provided they are made with EvaDress Patterns and otherwise fit into the challenge parameters and time frame stated here. 
The top finalist will be notified on the event wall by 11:59p.m., March 13, 2018.

NOTE: By entering this challenge you agree that your submission photos/descriptions may be used in the gallery on the EvaDress web site or elsewhere as promotional material (including print) for EvaDress. 

Once you are a part of this group, you can enter by posting your main photo on this page. Add subsequent high quality project photos (longest edge of photo to be 11” and at least 150dpi) including front, back, side views and construction/design details in the comments section under your main photo. Be sure to write what pattern you used and what you consider so fabulous about the design! If you do not use Facebook, I am happy to post your submission via your e-mail containing photos and description as outlined above. 

Feel free to e-mail me with questions. Questions may also be posted here or on my Facebook EvaDress Patterns wall
This challenge is void where prohibited.
