POOF! WITH THE FLIP OF A SWITCH - JUST LIKE THAT, OVER NIGHT...

 JACKIE O, I NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS





...the "Over The Top - 15 Day Challenge" has turned into "The Bottoms up 15 Day Challenge."  It is always kinda hard to go back and recap a challenge, but here are the estimated Top's Challenge Stats:
  • 26 people joined Over The Top - 15 Day Challenge (April 1 - 15)
  • 18 people have participated so far;  I say "so far" because some people mentioned they are still making tops, and I hope they will still post the results.
  • 59 Blog Posts
  • 57 New Tops posted (includes one re-fashion if I am correct); and Danielle's (3) tops because she has not been able to post pictures yet.
  • OVER ALL RESULTS:  Quite impressive if I might say so myself .


A "BOTTOMS UP - 15 DAY CHALLENGE"   seems to be a natural progression of
 
 "THE OVER THE TOP - 15 DAY CHALLENGE"


April 16 - April 30 has been proclaimed an official BOTTOM'S UP CHALLENGE.  It's a simple sew-a-long that will last only 15 days.  Here's the criteria:
  • Sew up or re-fashion the number of bottoms to your liking.  One, two or three - whatever your schedule allows.
•No quotas;
•No limits;

  • Skirts, skorts, pants, slacks, trousers, yoga pants, shorts etc.  all qualify - top also, if that's what you'd like.
  • Post your reviews, comments, tutorials and any other bottoms information you'd like to share on the "OVER THE TOP aka BOTTOM'S UP" blog.
  • If you previously signed up for Over the Top challenge and are interested, you are already in - just go to work on bottoms on April 16th.
  • If you previously signed up for Over the Top Challenge and are not interested - do nothing.
  • If you didn't sign up originally but want to for this half of the challenge - let me know by commenting on THIS POST AND LEAVING YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS
  • NOTE:  Email address are a must for new joiners.
So come on, it's simple to join in on the fun!


I'm looking forward sharing, and seeing your Over The Top/Bottoms Up spring/summer creations.  It's such a win, win situation.....

  2. Okay, I think I want to sign up since I am trying to sew for myself again after all these years. I truly NEED some tops more than I do bottoms, so that's what I'll concentrate on right now, if that's ok.
    granmommaj@gmail.com is my email address.
    Is this all I do?

  3. I'm in awe of the fact that now you've all made tops that you are flipping the script and making bottoms! What a great way to insure that you have a complete outfit to wear!

  4. I love your sew along style! So free and easy. Makes everyone feel like they're participating (even if only by watching). My T shirt experiment is off to a VERY slow start.

    I missed the top challenge, but I'll be joining you in the bottoms up challenge, I have two pants to make for my aunt and I'm a beginner so it might take me all 15 days to make both if not just one lol
