A Spring Skirt Challenge!

We told you we had a surprise in store and here it is!
We are declaring April "Skirt Month" on our Lutterloh blog! 

 The Skirt Challenge is now CLOSED
See the finished skirts on this post here.

  Two lucky winners will receive the newest Lutterloh supplement 
#296 pictured below! 
 (We do have a few others available if you already own this one.)

Skirts are fun, relatively easy, and come in so many styles to suit almost any figure.
Did you see Fonnell's post about skirts posted last week?

We hope this got your creative juices flowing because we are hosting a little non-competitive challenge right here on our blog. 
Come join in the fun! 

We invite you to sew along with us this month any Lutterloh skirt pattern you have in your collection. At the end of the month we'll all have a new skirt to wear!

Here are just a few rules we would like everyone to follow:
  • Make any skirt from any Lutterloh pattern you have. (The skirt can be for anyone.)
  • All participants will be entered into a drawing for a Lutterloh supplement.
  • Two different winners will be chosen by random drawing.
  • The project must be started and submitted between now and April 30, 2015.
  • Each entrant must submit a finished garment photo and answer a few questions about their Lutterloh experience.
  • All entries must be submitted in English.
  • Multiple entries allowed if made from a different pattern or for a different person. 
  • Winners will be announced the first week of May.

Once your skirt is complete please send a comment to this post with your e-mail address (we won't post these) so we can tell you where to send your photo. 
Along with your photo please submit your answers to these few questions about your Lutterloh experience:

  • What is your first name and country where you live?
  • What was the pattern you used (listed as year and number) and the fabric you used?
  • How long have you been using Lutterloh patterns or the number of patterns you've made?
  • What did you like about the pattern/process; did you have any difficulties?
  • What sewing machine do you use?

 We're hoping everyone can learn from this fun project so if you have questions or need help please send them as a comment to this post so everyone can read the answers.

Alright then Lutterloh enthusiasts, Start Your Engines! It's Skirt Month!!!
