The 2012 EvaDress Pattern Contest is posted and ready for votes!
Here are some words about voting, which is now open:
Only one vote per person per category will be counted toward final results. Vote for an entry by clicking in the range of stars at the bottom of the entry’s post.
See each category below to vote by clicking on the link to each.
Voting takes place from midnight (00:00 hours) EST on March 16, 2012 until midnight (00:00 hours) EST on March 26, 2012.
$100 of EvaDress patterns will be awarded to the winners of each category plus free shipping (international included). The awards (in the form of EvaDress gift certificates) are redeemable for up to one year from March 15, 2012 (the contest ending date).
Contest winners will be notified via e-mail. I will also publish them on my FaceBook page, at evadress.wordpress.com and I will post them on this blog site.
Here are the contest rules as a refresher:
Category 1~Any EvaDress pattern garment project that you have only thought about doing, but never took on. When you submit in this category, tell us why you only dreamed about doing the project and never made it. For example, perhaps your technical or pattern grading skills just weren't there yet:
Category 1 Voting
Category 2~Any EvaDress pattern garment project you started some time ago and have been meaning to finish. It doesn't matter if it has been years (hey, it happens) or weeks, when you submit in this category you need to tell us why you didn't finish it until now.
NOTE: Category 2 was exempt from the pre-January 15, 2012 contest start date for obvious reasons, but if you are entering in this category, you are not to pick that project up and continue it until 12 a.m. January 15, 2012:
Category 2 Voting
Category 3~Best use of pattern in its original form = Any garment for men, women or children created devoutly from the pattern (that is, with no changes to the design, although grading or alteration to the pattern for proper fit or length is a must):
Category 3 Voting
Category 4~Best use of pattern as adapted for contemporary-wear = Any garment for men, women, children created from an EvaDress pattern that has been modified for a more updated look (design changes allowed). One may not use pattern pieces from pattern companies other than EvaDress but, may incorporate pieces from an original vintage pattern, if desired:
