See It / Sew It Challenge

See It, Sew It Challenge  Have you found an outfit online or in a magazine that you would love to copy for yourself? This category is perfect for you! Start with a picture of a new garment or outfit from a current magazine, catalog, store display, or website. List the retail price if you were to purchase the garment or outfit. Then get creative and copy it. Include the cost of your sewn garment/outfit. Use of a commercial or hand-drawn pattern is your choice (the original picture cannot be from the pattern envelope.) The garment must be made in the Clothing and Textiles project. The focus of this category is copying a new garment and making it fit you. The entry should only be modified for fit, type of fabric, or color/print of fabric, keeping it as close to the original as possible. Copying a vintage Lucille Ball dress, for example, would be in the Retro Challenge.
