Winners of the Skirt Contest By MadelineL on Today at 2:14 PM

The Skirt Contest has concluded and there were so many great entries to choose from! As skirts are a basic element of a woman’s wardrobe and can be easy to sew, this contest was great for beginners and advanced sewists alike. I had a hard time deciding which skirts to vote for as they were all so gorgeous and well-made. Participants were to sew a skirt with a closure, a waist treatment, and a finished hem. Each entry submitted contained at least 3 photos. Elastic waist and wrap skirts did not qualify. Contestants had one month to sew their skirts and Pattern Review members voted to decide the first prize. Second prize was determined by random draw.

Let’s see who won!

First Prize Winner: beanchor for her McCall’s 4457 skirt!

 

beanchor says: “I am pleased with the end result. I love the lines of the bias and the texture it gives. The unfinished edges will weather in time with wear and washing. I am excited to watch this fall apart in the best way.

Random Prize Winner: Mariannesews or her Butterick 5466 skirt!

 

Mariannesews says: “This is a great pattern for showing off the print of a fabric. Since it is sewn out of an uninterrupted front panel and 2 back panels, the fabric design stands out…This is my first review on PR! Yay!”

 

Congratulations to all who participated in the Skirt Contest!

Special thanks to our Contest Manager, lyndle for managing this contest.

Thank you also to our sponsor Fabric Mart!
