Sewing Competition – Design with Denim

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

We are excited to announce our Term 1, 2019 Sewing Competition – Design with Denim!

This term we’re running a sewing competition for our students by challenging them to make and design something with denim!

We have also opened this up to the wider sewing community (non-current students & all sewers around the globe! So please share this post with other sewers too).

All you need to do is sew something with denim, post a photo/s of it on Facebook, tell us your story and inspiration behind your design and tag Maree Pigdon to go in the running.

The current adult student 1st prize is a one-on-one 2hr sewing lesson with Maree Pigdon at Rosewood Cottage, for current kids booked into term 1, is a free class in our Easter School Holiday Program and for the wider sewing community (non-current students)  the first prize is our Zero To Sewing online course.

So sewing enthusiasts start sewing your denim project!

Your entry can be part or fully made of denim fabric or chambray. Assessment criteria will be across all aspects of sewing and design, from quality of stitching, design, fit, elegance or quirky, hand and/or machine sewing and we’ll take into account your story too!

Here is some inspiration for you below.

 

We look forward to hearing of your ideas and seeing your wonderful creations very soon.

Entries close Friday 5th April 2019. T&C’s apply.

If you would like to learn to sew, develop your sewing skills and make your Denim project in our sewing school, there are still a few spots left for kids and adults in term 1, 2019.

Simplicity Pattern 2812

Monday, September 24th, 2018

I made this lovely rose print dress coat for the Telstra Business Awards Media night this year from Simplicity Pattern 2812.

I purchased a cotton stretch sateen fabric from my local Spotlight store in Geelong.

I was really pleased with the result, received many positive comments and it’s fantastic to wear!

Check it out below.
