Winners of the New to Me Pattern Company ContestBy AlexisW on 3/25/14 2:18 PM

With the New to Me Pattern Company Contest, PR members were challenged to create a garment from a pattern company they’ve never sewn before. Whether from an up-and-coming independent company, or a popular commercial brand, this was a unique opportunity to broaden stashes from tried-and-tested patterns.

Entrants were asked a few questions for their submission, so voters could read about the successes and issues members encountered while sewing the garment. 72 participants decided to test a new pattern company, and we hope it inspires you to try something new too!

You voted! Now let’s meet the winners…


First Prize Winner: dollston for Victory Patterns: 2001 (Roxanne Top)

dollston says, “I adore the collar on this top and I am so glad I bought the pattern.”

Congratulations, dollston! Wonderful work!


Second Prize Winner: marjieco for Lekala Patterns: 4122 (Jacket Sewing Pattern 4122)

marjieco says, “I am very happy with the pattern and my new cardigan. I now have several Lekala patterns to put together. The fit, style, and price of these patterns can't be beat.”

Excellent job, marjieco! Congrats!
