The rules are simple: Make a Dress using TWO KNIT fabrics. BOTH fabrics should be knits(printed or solid colors). There is no limit on how much or how little of the 2nd fabric you use, as long as its visible and enhances the garment. The dress should be wearable in public (no lingerie please) and be for an adult. Stash or new fabrics may be used.

  1. congratulations, I hope you go on to become the winner! You probably do not know just what it is they are looking for since this is your first time, but doing something unique and clever catches their eye as well as immaculate construction… and you have all of these traits! So good luck.


    1. Thanks Mom! You are my biggest fan! This last challenge I think I was over-thinking it and have settled in working on something…yet to be revealed!!!


  2. Well… at first I was a little taken aback! But you know – this is really clever! Just from the picture it looks like it will go really well with the A-line skirt. Dad says: “you don’t wear a skirt to ride a bike!”, but who needs a bike? This is fashion.


    1. no MOM, this is a COMPETITION!!! I think this jacket is going to sit in a box for a very long time….it may be a museum piece someday…


  3. Good luck! I’ve just discovered this competition, and everyone has been so creative and clever. Your biker jacket was just AMAZING! I love it!

    I’m so looking forward to seeing what you do with the dress.
