Winning 2014 EvaDress Pattern Contest Winning Entries

Clicking on each image will take you to the contestant's post:

The top prize in the advanced category goes to Nick in Michigan, who did an impeccable modification of a men’s wool jacket.
I was to select a final entry from the top five projects with highest votes in each category. This year the turnout was very low, so I went by the two top voted projects and selected the one that really hit the nail on the head as far as contest outlines. I can definitely see where Nick was coming from in his rendition inspired by the Montgomery Ward catalogue page.
Congratulations Nick, you have $75 of EvaDress patterns to select which will be sent to you at no charge AND a certificate for $50 of splendid fabric from EmmaOneSock.com!



The top prize in the beginning category goes to Alison in the United Kingdom, who challenged herself making this 1938 frock in velvet.
Congratulations Alison, you have $100 of EvaDress patterns to select which will be sent to you at no charge AND a certificate for $25 from Fashion Fabrics Club!
This year concludes The EvaDress Pattern Contest. I very much appreciate everyone’s participation over the four years that I put it on.
Cheers,
Xandra
