The Create and Craft TV, Makeittoday and Brother dressmaker of the year competition will be closing on the 9th of March 2017.
I am still working on my Vintage entry and see sneak-peek of the vintage dress below. This gown has lots of folds to create that dimension.
There is still time to enter the competition. There are four categories to enter.
- Ready to wear
Read the press release,
Simply take a clear photo of your garment against a plain background and enter it via firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
