This year at Costume Con we have TWO wonderful Pattern Contests for you to participate in !
Simplicity Pattern Contest
Single Pattern Contest
Yep, it is time once again for my favorite part of any Costume Con, the single pattern contest. Woo-hoo!
This year we have two beauties that lend themselves both to innovative reconstructions and creative fabric embellishments -historic or fantasy. Take the pattern and make it into anything you can dream up.
Personally I'm making an evening gown for myself and trying a new dying technique I learned from my husband's duster and shirt pattern. You can check out my progress on my Livejournal (http://smart-puppy.livejournal.com/), or our MySpace page at, http://www.myspace.com/singlepattern.
Hey novice sewers, this is the perfect opportunity to get your feet wet with constructing a costume! these are easy and forgiving patterns to sew. Aw Heck, glue the thing together if you want. We love it all!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would also be so kind to let me know if you plan on entering, it would be greatly appriciated. Thanks!
Now go wild and have fun!!
Cheers, Ann Hamilton.
