Mini Wardrobe Contest

Contest begins tomorrow! Or, technically tonight at midnight for all you late-night sewing fashionistas!!

I think I'll be starting with the pants, since my muslin stage has progressed so far. Here's another peek at the storyboard:

The garment I'll begin with will be the pants, Vogue 1035:

I'll be using this darkwash denim, which has a bit of my friend Lycra in it:

In anticipation, I'm going to try to finish up my Jalie Sweetheart tee. It needs one more sleeve, side seams, and hems. I have to say it looks SMASHING in the mauve knit!

Sadly, I'll be out of town from Sunday through Wednesday at yet another conference. So I will be "behind" in the wardrobe contest basically as soon as it starts. But the plan is to update each step of construction here on the blog to keep me focused. I love getting encouraging comments, so I will be blatantly using all of you as a motivational tool.


  1. Your storyboard looks great! I will be up cutting fabric at midnight! LOL

  2. Isn't the planning stage of a SWAP the most fun? Well, for me it is. I think I'll be changing my plan since I didn't like the skirt. Oh well, more planning!

  3. Wow - I can't wait to see everything finished - it's going to be awesome!

  4. Great pants! I love that cut, especially in denim.

  5. Super cute storyboard Angie!
