Skirt Week is back! (Were you reading last year? If not, here’s the review.)
Now that you may’ve had a chance to make some super tops for yourself, you may be ready for a few skirts to complement them. Or maybe you’ve been eyeing all of the tops wishing you’d thrown your hat into the ring. Or maybe you’ve not made much for yourself yet because tops look a little complicated (sleeves! yikes!) and you’d like to start with something simple. Skirts can be suuuuuper simple and still succeed brilliantly. Whether you fall into one of these categories or another entirely, here’s your chance!
Have you made a skirt since last year’s Skirt Week? Or are you ready to dive in now? As soon as you’re ready, you can enter up to three skirts per category. Here are the links to enter your skirts. If you have a blog, link to your post about your skirt. If you don’t have a blog, you can upload your photo to Flickr or another host and then enter it in the appropriate category. Here are the links to enter your skirts:
If you’re looking for some inspiration to get started, this might help. And starting the week of June 12, we have some fabulous tutorials, skirt ideas and skirt-celebrating articles to share.
During the following week beginning June 19 readers will be able to vote each day on a different category.
As if creating skirts that are you (or your kid) isn’t exciting enough, should you be chosen as either the judge’s favorite OR the reader’s favorite in your category, you’ll win PRIZES! Those will be announced later this week. Stay tuned.
- Enter NOW! You’ll just need to get your skirt (as many as 3 per category) in there by 8 PM Eastern on June 17, 2011.
- One photo submitted per skirt entry. We reserve the right to remove additional photos from the pool
- Skirts must be made for YOU for the straight, A-line or full categories
- Skirt must have been made since July 1, 2010
- Photo should be of the skirt on your body. (Borrow a neighbor! Use the timer!)
- Photo should show the skirt well. A full-body shot may make it difficult to really see your work
- Photo title should include your name and a description of the skirt
- Photo description should include pattern and fabric information as well as a link to your blog, if applicable, where you may show more photos if you like
- Majority of the effort in your skirt(s) must have been made by you, i.e. using thrifted or upcycled fabric is fine as long as you’re cutting it apart to start with just fabric
- You are welcome to use any pattern, tutorial, or even knock-off a favorite skirt from a store. Just give credit where it’s due.
We’ll update this post as needed as questions arise and we reserve the right to do our darndest to keep things fair and reasonable. Which means that if we’ve missed something and need to remedy it, it’s our right to do that.
That’s it for now, prizes will be announced later this week! (There’s still time to contribute prizes if you’d like– e-mail us!)
P.S. We’d love for you to spread the word! Forward the link to a friend you think might like it, or grab a button! (Copy the html code below the photo and paste it into an “HTML Widget” on your blog)
