The fashion industry has been known to be a culprit in today’s wasteful society. To highlight the importance of sustainability and environmental awareness in fashion we have put together a dress-making contest that is all about being green.

The Competition Categories

At this year’s Knitting & Stitching Show we’re inviting YOU to enter our Dressmaking competition.
We want to put your dressmaking skills to the test with 3 categories for our 2019 competition.

1. A Dress from your Stash:

We would like you to make a dress from any unused materials you already have at home, remnants from a previous make or channel your inner Maria Von Trapp and use some old fabric like curtains. The options are endless, you just already have to own it!

Please re-use an old pattern.

2. Go GREEN:
Submit a garment made from non-traditional materials like paper, bubblewrap, plastic bottles. Go WILD, the wackier the better.

3. Upcycle an existing garment into something wearable.
Turn an old pair of jeans into a dress, an old shirt into a new skirt or some old ties into a jacket. As long as it’s a wearable garment made from an existing item of clothing then you’re in for a chance to win.
