Hey, remember that Sew-Along
we did a long time ago? The one with all that lovely pin-up style lingerie?
A lot of you participated, over a hundred of you in fact. It was awesome! But very few of you sent Sarah (of Ohhh Lulu
) and I pictures of your finished projects. For those of you that did (Thank you again!), it made Sarah and I crazy excited. Since that part of the sew-along was so much fun for us, we though we might try again, but with a bit more oomph.
Sarah and I decided that we would host a competition with prizes for the best lingerie sewn! Don't worry, you don't have to pose in your lingerie, pictures of the garments by themselves are great! Sarah and I didn't pose in our lingerie either :)
If you didn't sew all three pieces, don't worry about that either, a prize will be awarded for each category, so Bras, Corsets, and Panties will each have their own prize.
The following prizes will be offered to the projects with the most votes:
Once all of the entries have been submitted, we'll post them on A Few Threads Loose
and you'll all be able to vote for which ones you like best. Want to win? Send your friends over here to vote for you. Anyone can vote!
Here's how to do it. Each entry needs to be posted on Craftsy
to qualify. (If you don't have a Craftsy account, it's free to sign up
and takes about a minute!).
To post your project, click on one of the links below to be taken to the about page for that pattern.
Pin-Up Bra Corselet
Pin Up Corset/ Garter Belt
Betty High Waist Panties
On the right side of the page you'll see the "+ Add a Finished Project" button.
Click on that and follow the quick process to post your bra, corset, panties, or all three. Sarah and I will get email notifications from Craftsy when your projects have been posted and we'll keep track of them for you.
You'll have until February 18th (New Extended Deadline!) to post your entries to Craftsy
. Voting will start on February 19th and we'll count the votes and announce the winner on February 26th.
For those of you who wanted to join in on the sew-along but didn't have time, now is your chance! You should have time to sew up something in the next 3 weeks and enter it in the competition if you'd still like to participate.
It really does delight Sarah and I to see your finished projects so dust off those undies and fly them with pride!
