Refashion Contest WinnersBy DianeSev on 12/23/11 4:00 PM


Refashioning, reconstructing, recycling or upcycling -- whatever you call it, this was the contest for it.

The objective of this contest was take an item or items and create a new and different garment. What does that mean? You couldn't shorten a wedding gown to make a cocktail dress, but you could cut and re-sew the skirt into a top!

Our 32 green participants had a blast with this one! You'll agree when you check out the gallery.

Now it's time to announce the winners!

First Prize (By Member Vote):
Amy-may for
Self Drafted Pattern: 33530-1000 Dress ME

Amy-may used "Sex in the City" as her inspiration in this highly modified version of Simplicity 2774.

Her starting point was a size 4X skirt from the clearance rack at Walmart that she bought for $5. She loved the print.

After much deliberation over how to squeeze the pattern into her yardage, she ignored the grainlines to make it work.

The actual sewing took only a couple of hours...it was the preplanning that took the most time!

Congratulations, Amy-may!

Random Entry Prize:
Passion4Sewing for Kwik Sew: 3926 Adult and Child's Snuggly Slippers

Congratulations, Passion4Sewing!
