Competition: Be crowned the dressmaker of the year as Brother teams with Create and Craft TV in Makeittoday’s sewing competition

Brother in association with Create and Craft TV bring the Dressmaker of the year competition.

Read the press release,

Simply take a clear photo of your garment against a plain background and enter it via or using this form. Contestants can enter each category, but each entry must be a different make.

Along with one winner being crowned Dressmaker of the Year, each category will feature its own prizes for a selection of our most impressive entries. The judges’ decision is final.

There are four main categories for every type of dressmaker,

  • Ready to wear: Home-made garments that suggest an ‘off the rack’ look, but with a high level of comfort, quality and ease of wear factored in.
  • Vintage: From the flirtacious frocks of the forties to the exaggerated lines of the eighties, we want to see your custom takes on retro makes.
  • Customising: The only way is upcycle if you fancy flaunting your repurposing skills, so send in any garments given a new lease of life.
  • Children’s wear: Tiny tees, kiddie capes or junior jumpsuits, here’s your chance to show your miniature makes to a whole new audience!
