Winners of the Pants Contest By AlexisW on 6/26/14 10:52 AM

The Pants Contest has concluded! Participants for this contest were encouraged to sew any style of long woven pants with a button or zipper fly closure. Special criteria for the Pants Contest included use of finishing details such as pockets, lining, and belt loops. It’s a challenging task to properly fit trousers, but these talented contestants created many inspiring, well-constructed garments.

You voted for your favorites! Now let’s meet who won…


First Prize Winner: bstar for Sewaholic Patterns 1203 (Thurlow Trousers)

Congratulations, bstar!

bstar says, "I cannot thank Tasia enough for this unbelievable pattern...I have a longing for nice woollen coats, handmade cotton summer dresses, funky comfortable pants, hand knitted sweaters...The Thurlow Trousers pattern is my first project towards this end, and because it was such a pleasure to sew and because I am so pleased with the final result, I am FIRED UP to create a lovely (BIG) wardrobe of handmade clothes. Hurray!!!"


Second Prize Winner: emv1102 for Vogue Patterns 1200 (Misses' Jacket And Pants)
