One Week One Pattern Challenge Accepted
If you follow me on Facebook or on twitter, you will have seen that I have signed up for the “One week, One pattern” challenge which is being led by Jane over at handmade Jane. The premise is simple; you take one sewing pattern and wear the garments they have made every day for a week. An amazing styles, as well as, sewing challenge which will definitely shake up your wardrobe!
I am going to go for the Zinnia pattern from Colette. Surprise! Another Colette pattern! The skirt is a pleated skirt which has three variations. Earlier in the year, I entered a sew along with this skirt, through the Stitchery Studio, based in Glasgow. Unfortunately, I didn’t win (I was robbed, ha!) but I fell in love with the Zinnia skirt pattern. I think it’s a great choice for this challenge, as it can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.
I already have so many ideas for more Zinnia skirts; I’m so excited to get started. If you are new to sewing and need a bit of inspiration to get you stepping on that pedal, this is the challenge for you. I dare you! What have you got to lose? Nothing!
The challenge runs from Saturday 6th September to Friday 12th September, so there is still plenty of time to choose a pattern and get started. I love a challenge and I am looking forward to getting my teeth stuck in. I’m not sure how many variations I’ll be making just yet, but I will keep you posted.
Well, what are you waiting for? Get signed up now!
