The Independent Pattern Company Alliance‘s (IPCA) first-ever fashion sewing contest, themed Midnight Magic, is drawing to a close. Contestants were challenged to interpret the Midnight Magic theme in a garment or outfit made from IPCA member company patterns.

Prior to last month’s Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington, the IPCA pattern companies selected semi-finalists to display in their booths. Each pattern company displayed its chosen semi-finalists during the Sewing & Stitchery Expo, where attendees voted on their favorites at each booth. The 8 winning garments were revealed at the expo’s closing fashion show.

The 8 finalists moved on to the final round of judging at the International Textile Expo in Las Vegas. The grand, second-place, and third-place winners will be announced soon.
The finalists from each IPCA pattern company are:

Robin Bolton of Dekalb, Illinois – L J Designs
Mary Collen of Orting, Washington – Dana Marie Design Co.
Charlene Colon of Fayetteville, North Carolina – Fashion Patterns by Coni
Jackie Lauber of Union Grove, Wisconsin – Great Copy Patterns
Eileen Moebius of Kapowsin, Washington – Islander Sewing Systems
Lorna Rae of Harrowsmith, Ontario, Canada – Kayla Kennington Designs
Colleen Schmidt of Loon Lake, Washington – Petite Plus Patterns
Ann Vidovic of Park Ridge, Illinois – Saf-T-Pocket Patterns
