Have you got your Vintage Shirt Dress pattern yet? We couldn’t be happier to see the patterns flying off the shelves since the launch last week. We are so pleased that you love it as much as we do.
To celebrate the release of the new Vintage Shirt Dress pattern, we’re very pleased to announce that it’s competition time!
Win a Janome overlocker!
We love Janome machines – we use both their sewing machines and overlockers in our classes, so we were delighted when they agreed to help us out with this competition. Such an amazing prize!
If you’ve never had a play on an overlocker before, trust us, they’re a sewing life changer. Quickly and professionally finish your seams, or if you’re sewing with jersey, whip up a whole garment in the space of an hour or so. No more zigzagging for you.
The prize is a Janome 6234XL overlocker, which you can read all about on their website.
How to enter
It’s easy! Grab the pattern then sew it, snap it, send it! Email the pictures of yourself wearing your finished dress to [email protected] and we’ll add them to our Vintage Shirt Dress Pinterest board. (Tip: Make sure you take your pictures in lots of light – outdoors might work best!)
Get your entries into us by Wednesday 8th July to be in with a chance. That gives you four whole weeks – definitely doable!
We won’t be running a full sewalong for the Vintage Shirt Dress pattern – most of the techniques are not too tricky so we think you’ll be fine.
We will however be guiding you through attaching the collar and facing, as well as creating the buttonholes using the automatic buttonhole function. Look out for these tutorials over the next few weeks.
Terms and conditions
– This competition is open to UK residents only.
