With months’ worth of entries pouring in for this year’s Dressmaker of the Year competition, we’ve seen so many glorious pictures coming in. And now it’s finally the time to shout about our amazing winners! With over 2100 entries the competition was fierce, and the judges were amazed by the stunning creativity and stitchy skills of the entrants. They certainly had a tough time narrowing down the winners!
So, let’s kick off with our Simplicity category winner, Annie Mollison from Australia! Her beautiful floral frock was an inspired take on Cynthia Rowley’s Simplicity 1873, and the pink accessories really rounded the outfit off.
Nailing the Everyday look, this category winner was Ann Snow. Her super smart jacket impressed the judges with the attention to detail and choice of fabric.
The Occasion category was snatched up by Jasmine Low, with her beautiful lace wedding dress.
Samuel Clark used his grandmother’s dress to take the crown in the Upcycling category, reworking it into a gorgeous glitzy gown.
The Vintage category was won be Rebecca Bradford Casey, with a pretty floral number.
And the Dressmaker of the Year? Jennie Stones from Leeds. Her entry into the Children’s Wear category snatched first prize, with this adorable make for her six-year-old granddaughter.
Congratulations to all the winners and a huge well done to everyone who took part! Here’s to next year…
