All right, folks, let’s get right to it.
Using the following criteria with a scale of 0 to 5, the judges rated the five finalists that were selected by your voting.
- Met the requirement to create Boxer Shorts
- Use of all materials
- Creative use of materials
- Functional garment
- Fun Factor
All the entries were delightful and the competition was fierce. The scoring results were close. And everyone should be proud of their accomplishment. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner.
Andi S, please step forward.
The judges said your boxers were very versatile and creative, and as a group they all appreciated your styling of the garment. However, Bizzy thought she would have liked to have seen a more interesting use of some of the yarns. And with a score of 26 points out of a possible 35, I'm sorry, you've been FROGGED!
Caralyn R, please step forward.
The judges said your boxers displayed good boxer construction and your color blocking was on trend. Let's see how they scored your entry. With a score of 27 points out of a possible 35, I’m sorry, you've been FROGGED!
Robin B, please step forward.
The judges were impressed with both the creative use of the materials and how well the garment fit. There was a question of whether they could be classified as boxer shorts however. So, with a score of 31 points out of a possible 35, I'm sorry, you've been FROGGED!
That leaves us with two contestants.
Dana E and Kate H, please step forward.
Dana, the judges said you created some seriously nice boxers and were impressed with the details you included in your design.
Kate, the judges said your entry was very well constructed and loved your creative use of all of the yarns including the ribbon used to tie the packaging. There was, however, some discussion as to whether or not you created boxers or a skort.
The scoring results... a tie!!! A tie with 33 points out of a possible 35.
