Who won the Outerwear Contest? Find out here!By AlexisW on 7/11/14 10:23 AM

From rain jackets to trench coats, the Outerwear Contest featured outstanding adult and children garments. And whether we like it or not, fall is on its way! Early autumn pattern collections are now being released, so it’s a great time to start planning ahead. With that in mind, the Outerwear Contest encouraged participants to sew a garment that is designed to be outerwear, such as parkas and ponchos, perfect for cool summer evenings or destination vacations. Special criteria members considered while voting included quality construction methods, lining techniques and seam finishes.

You voted! Let's meet the winners now...


First Prize Winner: ColeenS for Burda 7347 (COAT & JACKET)

Congratulations, ColeenS!

ColeenS says, “I'm very happy with it. Actually looking forward to the fall so I can wear it.”


Second Prize Winner: Lynnelle for Indygo Junction 740 (Trench Topper)

Congrats, Lynnelle!

Lynnelle says, “Having sewn this coat before, the second version of course did not take nearly as long. In fact, it took me around 5 days to complete. Oh the joys of having TNT patterns!”


Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Outerwear Contest!

Making a coat is real test of a sewer. I'd say you passed with flying colors.
