I know some of you have been wondering where the dickens this years series of The Refashioners has got to, right? I mean, right about now we’re usually just days away from launching into a month of inspiration from some amazing sewing bloggers before the community challenge gets underway after that.
Well, this year we’re doing things a little differently. And while there are quite a few exciting bits of info I need to share with you, I’ve had to break it up into little chunks so I can handle it all with out blowing a circuit in my brain. (There’s ALOT going on this year). So for now, let’s start with the dates and the theme:
- The theme this year is …….(mimes drumroll)….
Yep! SUITS! Think fugly out of style suits from the 80s that you wouldn’t be seen dead in….and you’re there! It’s our most challenging one yet! But before you pass out from fear (or is that just me?) take a look at the dedicated pinterest board I’ve set up to help you get your creative brains whirring with ideas! (Full rules etc to follow. Just start wrapping your head around the basic idea for now!)
But wait….before that…you’re gonna have the blogger element of the series providing you with loads of inspiration, tutorials and tips to get you going! So mark these dates in your diary (and make sure you’re following me either here or on IG to stay updated):
- Blogger Element: Running from 1st Sept to 30th Sept this year. Why? Firstly, summer is a crazy time and we all get less time to sew because of all the lovely stuff going on. Secondly, this theme….suits…just felt more Autumnal to me. Simple as!
- Community Challenge: This will run right from 1st Sept to 31st October. There will be the usual phenomenal prize package for our winner(s) at the end.
- Hasthtags: Do love a good punny hashtag to go with this series. So this year we have #suitsyou and #therefashioners2017 (not so punny….but very necessary if you want me to find your entry on social media once we get to that stage!)
So yeah, I’m just gonna drop this little tantalising morsel of info on you, buggar off to Greece for a few days, and I’ll be back next week to reveal the “Oh my freakin’ goodness” blogger line up we have for you this year 😉
