I thought I’d celebrate our sweet new lingerie/ loungewear patterns with a fun little contest, what do you think? I’m calling it the Darling Dainties contest (I hope the silliness of that name amuses you half as much as it does me).
All you have to do is create an inspiration board based around one of the two new patterns, either nutmeg or cinnamon (or both!), to show how you’d make it. You can use whatever tools you like: photoshop, polyvore, or anything else that can manipulate images. Check out this example board I put together to see what I mean. Of course, yours does not have to be this dorky and overstyled.
When you’re done, post the image on your blog, and comment here with a link. If you don’t have a blog, that’s ok, you can also post an image to our Flickr pool.
In two weeks (Wednesday, June 16th at noon PST), I’ll go through and pick three finalists. You guys can then pick your favorite inspiration board and vote… the winner will receive a $75 Colette Patterns gift certificate!
Include anything you want that inspires you with these patterns. Some other ideas:
- vintage postcards
- old time movie stars
- color swatches
- fabric swatches
- cool vintage details you would add
- modern lingerie you might draw inspiration from
- lace, trims, and notions
- a beautiful setting you imagine lounging in
The sky’s the limit! Just don’t forget to post the link here in the comments, and have fun!
