When Simplicity announced it’s Simplicity Sewing Challenge, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to enter my first ever judged sewing challenge/competition. Of course, I had to enter the Vintage Section, even though it was a halter neck top, which is a style of clothing I just don’t wear any more. Oh well, a challenge in more ways than one then! Here is the pattern:
The vintage pattern for the Simplicity Challenge
And here is my version I am entering into the challenge:
My 1970’s Outfit for the Simplicity Sewing Challenge 2016 – Vintage Section
My version of the infamous Walkaway Dress – the Butterfly Pose
OK, I’m cheating a little with counting this as one of my Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge makes, but if it’s good enough for A Stitching Odyssey then it’s good enough for me!
Yippee! The Great British Sewing Bee is back in all it’s glory! It’s series 3 and I was wondering how they were going to make it more difficult and/or find better sewers than series 2. Well there’s certainly some very competent sewers this time round and I can’t wait to see how they all get on!
You’ve got 7 minutes sewers!
If you’re a sewer, have you ever asked yourself “I wonder how I would get on making that item of clothing in the time frame they’ve been given?”
I thought so!
Has anyone tried it at home? If you have I’d love to hear how you got on 🙂
