Earlier this week, Sew Mama Sew announced their Great-British-Sewing-Bee-inspired sewing contest, the Super Online Sewing Bee. Even before I read that the grand prize is a Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900, I knew I would have to enter. Without further ado, here’s my audition.
This skirt is my first attempt at designing and drafting a garment from scratch. It’s a pretty straight-forward gathered skirt, but I’ve added bias-cut, inset pockets for a little extra somethin’ somethin’.
Last year, I went through a bag phase. I got ahold of Amy Butler’s book, Style Stitches and just went nuts. The first bag is the Cosmo Bag and the second/third is the Reversible Everyday Shopper.
I really hope I make it in as a main contestant. If not, I plan on competing in the community contest. Either way, I can’t wait to follow along and see all the creativity. What do you think? Are you planning on competing in the main contest or the community contest? Have you competed in an online sewing contest before?
