The #Versalette Challenge is fully underway, with about 9 participants thus far (it’s not too late to start!) and I AM LOVING IT.
The winner, of course, will receive a $100 gift card from Seamly.co, and since I’m a little too close to the project (and the participants) we have a panel of judges who will decide the winning looks.
Here they are! HUGE thanks to these ladies for their time + support.
(previous #Versalette Challenge winner)
I met Jackie for half-a-second when I delivered her Versalette to her doorstep in Boulder (we both lived there at the time).
I never (ever!) do that, but it was fun to be able to deliver to her door, and then see all of the outfits she created in the last #Versalette Challenge.
It also turns out that she’s awesome, and is involved in some really amazing projects. Jackie works for Google, helping encourage young women to become innovative thinkers. She spends her days teaching and designing everything from marketing materials to lesson plans for CS First, an after school program whose mission is to make coding accessible and engaging for all K-12 students.
In her own words: “Dreams of being a minimalist and living in an airstream. Lover of all things beautiful and zombies.”
Owner, COsewn, Seamly.co collaborator, pattern + samplemaker, consultant
I gush on COsewn and Jessica ALL THE TIME because I don’t know where Seamly.co would be without her guidance and talent. She’s passionate about ethically-made, USA-produced fashion, and is an absolute wealth of knowledge.
Her company, COsewn, focuses on independent designers, providing resources, consulting, coaching, project management, and product development services to help designers navigate the process of designing and manufacturing a sewn product.

Sustainable food + fashion changemaker, AWEAR 2014, Make Fashion Fair
AWEAR 2014 is a (growing) project of people who’ve pledged to only purchase mindful clothes and accessories. The website, with details + the pledge, will be launched soon.
A huge, huge thank you to the lovely judges. Participants must submit their photos by MIDNIGHT on MONDAY (February 10th). We’ll announce the winner late next week!
