I am going to enter your design challenge, and I had a few questions.
1. Can I do more than one entry?
2. I saw in the comments that there was going to be a fall judging, a summer judging, and a spring judging. Am I supposed to do an outfit for each one? That would be awesome, 'cause I sewed an outfit already, but then got an even more fabsome idea so I'm doing that one instead. This way, I could do both!
3. Do you have to use the doll you are sewing the outfit for? Like, sewing an outfit for Caroline, do I have to use Caroline? (I'm not, but I'm using this for a example.)
4, Where do I see the winners from last year? That would be helpful to see what kinda stuff you like:)
Thank you,
Emma
BTW...I love your label for the challenge. I wanna print it and use it as a poster for my dolls! hehe

Meghan-- We are starting to go through the entries now. We'll email you when your post is ready to be viewed. :-)

Girl who is McKenna -- It can be a no-sew outfit.

Anonymous -- 1. Can I do more than one entry?

One entry per person. But you can enter the Summer and Fall contests as well.

2. I saw in the comments that there was going to be a fall judging, a summer judging, and a spring judging. Am I supposed to do an outfit for each one? That would be awesome, 'cause I sewed an outfit already, but then got an even more fabsome idea so I'm doing that one instead. This way, I could do both!

There will be three separate contests this year. So you can submit and outfit to each of those.

3. Do you have to use the doll you are sewing the outfit for? Like, sewing an outfit for Caroline, do I have to use Caroline? (I'm not, but I'm using this for a example.)

No, you don't have to use the doll you are sewing for.

4, Where do I see the winners from last year? That would be helpful to see what kinda stuff you like:)

We will post some links to the past winners on zee blog. Stay tuned!

It is possible that I missed this information, but I was wondering if there is a preferred size width (pixels) for the pictures? Also, wondering about any formatting within the body of the email that should be done, such as pictures and text interspersed.

Nora and Maple said...

Carol -

About 500 px wide is a good size for your pics.

Some people have a hard time putting pics into the body of an email. But the way we post your entry is text and pics interspersed.

So if you can't put pics into the email, just put a notation of which image you want to appear where.

Like:

Text blurb.

(Insert IMG_0099)

Text blurb.

(Insert IMG_8765)

That kind of thing. Hope this helps!
