It’s back Sew Your Style 2020

Now in its 3rd year, this competition is a chance to show us your sewing style, flair and creativity

Categories

  • Vintage Revival: Can’t resist the glamour of a retro garment? Here’s your chance to show us your favourite style of the past. 
  • Refashion: Get creative and up-cycle a denim jacket into another garment for your wardrobe. 
  • Eye for Detail: Love ruffles, pinticks or other sewing techniques, then WOW us with your fabric manipulation.
  • Sew Colour Block: It’s one thing matching colurs, but mixing them can create fab results. We’re looking for stunning dresses made with colour-blocking! 

A panel of sewing industry judges will cast their votes in the lead up to the show.

Don’t miss the ‘Sew Your Style’ gallery where all entries will be displayed on a photo gallery at Sewing for Pleasure in Birmingham (Thursday 19th – Sunday 22nd March 2020). We’ll also have a special display of the winners of each category for visitors to admire!
