The Stitch Festival Dressmaking competition is open to all contemporary dressmakers who want the opportunity to share their creations. Whether you’ve been sewing for years or you’re a complete beginner, we welcome your entries! There are five categories to choose from this year, including a new Childrenswear category. We encourage you to be as innovative as possible and judges will be looking for personal flair as well as beautifully executed techniques, stitching and finish. You can use commercial patterns or your own design. You can adapt, hack or customise and of course, for the Upcycling category, we expect just that! The choice is yours.
