The Birthday Challenge came about one night when I was at a party. My friends were disappointed that I had not worn one of my own designs, and after some more discussion (and champagne) I promised that I would wear something I had designed and made, to all the birthdays in our circle of friends. The circle I speak of consists of seven people including myself.
To push myself further, I added the condition that I would make something especially for each of the birthdays.
All the outfits/garments/dresses etc will be documented on my blog.
