Project Sewn Season One Results!!!

When we decided to launch Project Run and Play's sister site, we were a bit nervous to do it.  Would anyone follow us over here?  Would we be able to get designers to sew and photograph themselves for 4 weeks straight and want to be in a competition all at the same time? And would this happen or that happen (there were a million bad thoughts flying around on random emails)....
But Season One is over, we have had fantastically terrific designers (seriously impressive!) and they have made Season One a pleasure to be a part of.  These six talented women put themselves out there, made a total of 18 full and complete outfits (that were perfectly fitted--not the easiest of tasks) have done full photo shoots and have inspired so many of us. 
Haven't you been so inspired this season? 
So, to those six women who took a chance on a new project....thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.  And I think they were all having fun in the process....we did get to peek in on some fantastic emails about how they were all having to grab pants when doorbells rang after sewing in their skivvies to be able to try things on at a moment's notice.  So, thanks for being great really is what we pictured when we took on such a project.
And now for the results......
