Well, that’s been one hell of a month. I have sworn in at least 3 languages, I have stuck myself repeatedly with pins, I have run out of materials, but I am happy with what I have accomplished.
Despite the setbacks and issues I ran into, this has been great fun. I really wanted to challenge myself with this, and feel I achieved what I wanted to. All of my garments are completely sewn by hand, I got to use materials I dyed myself, I learned a few new stitches, and most fun of all I got to perpetuate sharp force trauma to fabric with pinking irons. There are defiantly a few things I would do differently, and I may well alter some things down the line, but for now I have a fully functional outfit done in a month.
So, huzzah for the organizers of the competition, and huzzah for all my fellow participants!
