QuoteI was thinking of something like this...the idea being that if you can check off all five of the major bullets below, then you can self-define as Intermediate to Advanced and enter in that category. If you cannot check off all five, then you can self-define as Beginner to Intermediate. It would be up to each entrant to decide, so this list is offered as a guideline. * Made over 50 garments * Made more than 3 of the following types of garments: Jacket Shirt with stand and front band Coat Fitted dress Pants with fly front zipper Lined garment * Sewn garments out of more than 3 of the following: Lace Leather or faux suede Chiffon Silk Duponi Boucle Wool coating Fake or real fur Taffeta Satin * Successfully used more than 4 of the following techniques: Invisible zipper Hong Kong seams Welt pockets Underlining Bias binding for neck or armhole finish Set in sleeves Bound or hand made buttonholes Calculated for turn of the cloth * Used at least 3 of the following hand stitches Slip stitch Back stitch Catch stitch Pad stitch Whip stitch Blanket stitch

It feels weird to put myself into the Beginner to Intermediate category for all the years of my sewing experience, but I hadn't really looked at my skillset with this point of view. I guess that most of my actual sewing is fairly simple. I'm definitely nothing like a beginner, but compared to those who do couture stitching, I am nowhere near advanced, either. So, fellow forum members, which category would you put me in?

Quote from: sharonspils on December 17, 2018, 08:08:33 pmNow CCL I have a question about the photos, you can't see my technique (waist stay) in the 3 shots you have suggested without being rather naked. Can I post a photo of the waist stay on the dress hanging?
Quote from: kowgiirl.up on December 28, 2018, 08:35:25 amSo has everyone that is competing in the challenge posted their photos? I don't want to miss anyone before voting.
