Best Vintage Make

Having launched the Simplicity Blogger Challenge in May, we were amazed at the response!

Challenging the bloggers at the heart of Britain’s creative community to sew up a storm, we were met by a wave of gorgeous makes, each adding their own personal take on Simplicity classics NewLook shift dress 6145, 1364 vintage top sewing pattern and It’s So Easy 2286 sewing pattern

We’ve loved watching the entries come through, showing what a creative bunch you all are with your own bespoke creations, embracing the Simplicity sewing mantra that the only rule is that there are no rules!

In fact we loved them so much that we’re set to add your crafty creations to our Pinterest page, so keep a look over the next few weeks for your gorgeous makes on 

(Drum roll)....We have a winner!

Having reviewed each entry, the celebrity judging panel were hard pushed to whittle down the makes to one winner for each category. So, we created a ‘highly commended’ spot for bloggers that just missed out on the coveted top spot, but produced a project that both the judges and Simplicity recognised  as a great make.

So, without further ado, here are the winners and highly commended bloggers for Simplicity’s inaugural Blogger Challenge.

We loved these interpretations of the Simplicity patterns, clever choice of fabric, their brilliant blogs and were massively impressed by their sewing skills!
