Indie Pattern Month – the Dresses contest prizes!

Hey, wanna know what the prizes are for the Indie Pattern Month sewing contests? I bet you do! Well, this is your lucky day, because I’m gonna tell you all about what you can be in to win for the first – the Dresses contest!

Now first of all, let’s start off with a little re-cap of what these contests are all about. During June, the theme here on The Monthly Stitch is sewing with patterns from independent designers. A bit of a celebration of those indie designers who keep on bringing us more and more patterns and choices. We like to call it ‘Indie Pattern Month‘. 😉

Just for fun, we like to make this into Quite A Big Deal. And part of that is by running sewing contests during the month. (It’s entirely up to you whether you want to take part in any (or all!) of the contests, or if you’d just like to sew along with the indie patterns theme for the month.)

This Indie Pattern Month, we have four contests running – one for each week during June. You can find out more about them over here. Each week has a theme, and several prizes that you can be in to win, donated by lovely sponsors.

We’ve heard from you all before that you prefer to have lots of little prizes, so more people can win, rather than one huge prize for one person. Guess what? We’ve got even more prizes for you this year! It’s pretty exciting, really. And we’d like to give a huge thank-you to all of our amazing sponsors!

So, let’s see what those prizes are! We’re starting off with the Dresses contest prizes – details for the other contests will be coming soon… 😉

Week one: Dresses contest

A nice, easy contest to start with. Simply make a dress from an indie pattern.

  7. I’m wondering if my Anna dress is up to the challenge of winning one of these prizes, if so, I hope it’s one of the mystery packs. (I hope if I would win it won’t be the Gather patterns, I won them last IPM in a giveaway)


  8. What fabulous prizes. I’d most like to win Dresses & Me mystery pack because surprises are so exciting or Minerva Craft because it’s fabric!! I’d better get my thinking cap on about what to make for the challenge. So many possibilities, I may even make more than one dress 🙂
