Dressmaker of the Year 2018: The Final Countdown!

Make it Today magazine’s Dressmaker of the Year competition is well and truly under way. If you’ve missed the buzz, don’t worry – there are just over five weeks to go until the competition closes!

We’re extremely proud to be sponsoring the competition here at Simplicity, with our very own category this time round, as well as Everyday, Occasion, Upcycling, Vintage and Children’s wear. There were over 1200 amazing entries last year!

It couldn’t be easier to enter - simply submit up to five photos of your garment, which must be taken against a plain white background. To win you’ll need to wow the stellar judging panel, which includes;

  • Portia Lawrie, last year’s Dressmaker of the Year winner
  • Vicky Gill, Strictly head costume designer
  • Stuart Hillard, Great British Sewing Bee personality

There are also some amazing prizes up for grabs for the Simplicity category, including 10 Simplicity sewing patterns, a bundle of gorgeous sewing fabric from The Craft Cotton Co, a selection of vintage-inspired Simplicity gift items AND a Simplicity Satin 197 with silver panel!

The best part? You can enter as many times as you like. So hurry and enter here! The competition closes on Friday 9th March.
