To take part we had to choose a decade between the 20s and the 70s, choose a pattern and a cotton fabric – it HAD to be 100% cotton, hence the Fall For Cotton title!
I chose to make a skirt from my Senora fabric and a wrap dress in the Bluemerang print
It started on 1st September and we had a month to complete our garments – final photos had to be uploaded to the Flickr pool by 30th September.
We were encouraged to upload photos of our inspiration and our progress and could comment on other peoples projects and progress. I have to say the whole experience was really enjoyable and also quite exciting having seen the various patterns and fabrics other people had chosen, watching their progress and finally seeing their finished garments. It was also really nice receiving comments from other people on my efforts!
If you’ve ever fancied having a go I’d definitely recommend it – abilities ranged from total beginners to really accomplished seamstresses and everyone is really supportive and helpful.
