The TV series that we have been swooning over for the last six seasons will be airing part 1 of it's FINAL season this April. That means another season of fabulous and give-it-to-me-now vintage fashions for us to indulge ourselves with. And for those of us in the sewing world, we know what this means ...
MADMEN CHALLENGE III
Can I get an amen?
Recreate a Mad Men dress that you love. It doesn't have to be an exact copy, you can just be inspired by the style of the 50's, 60's and early 70's.
I love this sewing community and group challenges are a great way to meet other like minded vintage lovers. It's so rewarding to set yourself a sewing goal, and we all get to be inspired by the beautiful creations that people make.
What's more it's a great way to discover new blogs to follow and to get yours out there. Don't have a blog? No worries! You don't need to have one to be part of the fun.
What you need to do:
Make your garment and then if you have a website do a blog post about it. Then ...
Email me at julia(at)juliabobbin(dot)com the following:
- A photo of you wearing the garment that you made
- A photo of the inspiration dress/character - remember it doesn't have to be a copy it can just be inspired by a dress/character
- A link to your blog post showing your finished dress. Make sure you blog about your garment before you send me the images so that I have a blog post to reference. Don't have a blog? No worries! You only need to provide your blog details if you want to. Plenty of people took part in past challenges that didn't have a blog.
- Your name (or alter-ego) and your blog name.
Once I have received the above information I will respond with a confirmation within three days that it has been received.
Got any questions? Still not sure what you have to do? Just send me an email!
For those of you who want to let people know they are taking part in the challenge, here is a button you can proudly post on your blog:
Send the above details to me by Tuesday, April 1st – that gives us about six weeks to create a masterpiece!
