Okay ladies (and gents) the rules are quite simple:
1. Sew (or knit/crochet) a pair of shorts. Adult and child sizes welcome. Anything that is shorter than a pant (capris, clam diggers, bloomers, swim trunks) is considered fair game.
2. Shorts must have been completed during the sewalong: July 1-26, 2012. (It's okay if you started early, but they must have been sewn for the contest and finished during the sewalong.)
3. Upcycling and refashion are encouraged, but simply chopping off a pair of jeans won't win you any fabulous prizes.
4. Enter to win by submitting no more than three pictures to the flickr group. Be sure to add a description (links to blog posts are okay), the more we know about what you did the easier it will be for us to be impressed!

Judging Criteria

All entries will be judged on the following criteria:
1. Craftsmanship: high quality construction, nice finishing
2. Creativity: design, fabric choice, unique style
3. Wearablity: functional, well-fitting
4. Presentation: nice photos, cute styling
