That’s right: You’ve got from today until this Sunday, October 6th to sew something focused on texture!
So, what does that mean? Well, you could:
- Use a fabric with a pronounced texture, like a heavy knit, boiled wool, bouclé, corduroy, etc.
- Add texture to your fabric with quilting, pintucks, shirring, etc.
- Combine different textures into one garment, like faux leather sleeves on a ponte jacket, pintucks and lace insets on a camisole, or whatever combo strikes your fancy!
As always, this challenge is just for fun — don’t take the rules too seriously, and only take part if a bit of speed sewing gets your creative juices flowing! You can finish an existing project, do a refashion, embellish an existing garment, or sew a completely new garment!
Please tag your works-in-progress and finished projects with #SewcialistsMiniChallenge, and make sure you are following the tag on Instagram to see what other make. This time we won’t be doing a complete round-up on the blog of everyone who participates, but we will highlight some of our favourites.
Sewcialists, start your sewing engines! You have 5 days, and your time starts NOW!
How convenient that my crimson silk velvet just arrived. I guess my Winter Holiday blouse is coming a bit early!
