The Creative Craft Show competition Sew Your Style in association with us here at The Pattern Pages gave dressmakers the chance to show off their dressmaking skills, as well as win some fab prizes worth over £4,000 from our generous sponsors!
The entries seem to get better and better every year, and this year, the standard of sewing was so amazing!
Vintage Revival – Can’t resist the glamour of a retro garment. Here was your chance to show us your favourite style from the past!
Eye for Detail – Love ruffles, pintucks or another sewing technique then WOW us with your fabric manipulation!
Sew a Colour-Block Dress – It’s one thing to master matching colours, but mixing them can create wonderful results. We were looking for stylish dresses.
Back in February – we had over 130 entries, which we narrowed down to 10 garments from each category to go forward.
This year’s competition was like everything this year, it had its ups and downs. We selected the finalists but then the lockdown came, but we weren’t able to showcase them at Sewing for Pleasure at the NEC in Birmingham like we usually do in March. Then the autumn Creative Craft Shows unfortunately had to be cancelled too – so the judging was carried out by us and the Creative Craft shows team.
We will also be announcing the winners over on the Creative Crafts Show Live on Facebook at 2.30pm in the Meet the Artists at www.facebook.com/watch/thecraftshows on 7th November!
The prizes up for grabs!
We’d like to thank all of our sponsors for their generosity with prizes for the winners.
