A New Project.

Elizabeth and I are so excited to unofficially launch Project Sewn today!
(We will "officially" launch the site next week with a dreamy giveaway and some other excitement.) 

Ever since taking over Project Run and Play we have wanted to start a companion site that focuses solely on women's garment construction.  We knew we wanted something similar to PR&P but all "grown up".  So here's how things over here will work:

  Project Sewn will be a 4 week competition with 6 designers.  Each week the designers will be given a theme to design and sew their clothing garments on.  Also, like PR&P each week the designs will be opened to a popular vote.  Although over here there will be no judges, each week contestants will be scoring each others work.  (Won't that be a fun twist?)

And similar to PR&P, the week's votes and scores will be combined to determine a winner and who will be "sent home".
Of course there will be amazing prizes and a sew along group. 

And...tutorials, tips, and fashion posts in between competitions.
It should be a good time.
No, it should be a great time.

We can't wait to get started!

In the meantime, if you want to link up a favorite garment that you've sewn for yourself please do!  We would love to see what all of you out there are making for yourselves!

  3. Ladies! You are killing me here! I follow your blog, check into Project Run and Play and then see this on the Project Run and Play site....I did NOT know you ran that site OR had the time and stamina to add another! You are crazy indeed! Just so wierd that I never realized from a few months ago that you ran PRP! I follow Craftiness is Not Optional and Girl.Inspired which is how I started checking out PRP. Anyway...congrats!
