Fancy turning your stitching adventures into the success story of the year?

If you’ve been inspired by the gorgeous designs showcased in the pages of Dressmaker and Sew Magazine and think you’ve got what it takes to create something with star potential, we want to hear from you! Maybe you’ve recently concocted a gorgeous walkaway dress, or upcycled an old charity shop find into the ultimate lacy blazer, or perhaps you’ve come up trumps with a cute smock for your little one? Whatever your fashion passions, this is your opportunity to shine in one of four tailor-made categories.

In association with Brother and Create and Craft, Dressmaker of the Year promises to be one of the most thrilling DIY couture events in the calendar.


  • READY TO WEAR:- Home-made garments that suggest an ‘off the rack’ look, but with a high level of comfort, quality and ease of wear factored in.
  • VINTAGE:- From the flirtacious frocks of the forties to the exaggerated lines of the eighties, we want to see your custom takes on retro makes.

  • CUSTOMISING:- The only way is upcycle if you fancy flaunting your repurposing skills, as we open the floor to all garments given a new lease of life.

  • CHILDREN’S WEAR:- Tiny tees, kiddie capes or junior jumpsuits, here’s your chance to show your miniature makes to a whole new audience!

WIN £1,500+ worth of sewing goodies!


Simply take a clear photo of your garment* against a plain background and enter it via email at or social media at dressmakeroftheyear. All entries must be received by 9th March 2017.
