Woohoo! #SOIshowoff, our monthly competition is back!!
Happy November everyone! Well it’s been a busy few months here at Sew Over It HQ! Since the last #SOIshowoff competition we have released a total of seven sewing patterns! Wowzers! (Admittedly five of those were part of our new eBook, My Capsule Wardrobe: City Break, which contains a whole collection of sewing patterns for a weekend break away!). It’s been amazing to see your Rosie Dresses, Heather Dresses, Molly Tops, Erin Skirts, Mia Jeans, Alex Shirt Dresses and Lola Coats all popping up in the wild. What a talented bunch you are. Today it’s time for a celebration, so we’re back-tracking four months and bringing you four SOIshowoff winners!
First up we have the superbly named @pin_n_tonic, who made this beautiful summery Grace Dress from our online sewing class in July.
It’s a fantastic fit paired with the perfect fabric choice – and matching shoes! On a veranda! What’s not to love? Come summer we’d like our wardrobes to look a bit like this.
The next winner is the wonderful @Carmeta.Sew and her extra special Betty Dress she made in August for the holidays.
She’s added floaty fluted sleeves, which is something we’ve seen a few people doing recently with this sewing pattern – we’re not surprised as it works so well. We love the effect and it really does make a stunningly pretty summer dress.
September’s prize goes to the beautiful Hannah at @the_vintage_cake_ (another name we can get behind!), and her super pretty floral Vintage Shirt Dress.
We are quite enamoured by this fabric and pattern pairing; to us it works so well. The longer sleeves means this dress can be worn into winter, and with a slip it would even work with tights. Definitely one we’ll have to copy!
And lastly, bringing us all up to date, for October we have the lovely Ruth of @ruthiesews and her awesome colour-block Heather Dress.
Look at the colour coordination here! This Heather Dress looks so snuggly and cosy for winter, yet it’s still funky and stylish. For cooler weather you really don’t get any better than that!
Well done to all four amazing ladies. You each win a £20 voucher for our online fabric shop!
Doing the #SOIshowoff round-ups every month is so inspiring. We’re so pleased to see the sewing bug catching on and more and more people indulging in our favourite hobby. Being able to make your own clothes is so fun and freeing and offers so much scope for creativity. Seeing our sewing patterns come to life in lots of wildly different ways is so exciting for us – so thank you to everyone for entering! If you want to see more, we pin as many entries as we can to our #SOIshowoff Pinterest board. Just look at all these beauts!
