The 2013 Ticket to Paradise Grand Prize went to Eve Kovacs of Woodridge, Illinois, who used patterns from Saf-T-Pockets to create a skirt and jacket ensemble.

At the International Textile Expo in Las Vegas, March 18-20, the Independent Pattern Company Alliance presented its annual sewing contest fashion show and awarded the top prizes to the contest winners. Each year, the IPCA’s contest challenges sewers to select patterns from one of the IPCA member pattern companies and then unleash their imaginations to create garments inspired by the contest theme. The 2013 theme was “Ticket to Paradise”, and contestants were encouraged to make garments that express their idea of “paradise”. The winning garments were selected from a field of finalists during the Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington, earlier in March.

The 2013 Ticket to Paradise Grand Prize went to Eve Kovacs of Woodridge, Illinois, who used patterns from Saf-T-Pockets to create a skirt and jacket ensemble.

Second place was awarded to Demoree Abdalla, of Canyon City, Nevada, who made a summery white dress using a pattern by LJ Patterns. 

Third place went to Nancy Robertson of Mobile, Alabama, for her tailored jacket and pant ensemble, made using patterns by Dana Marie.

In fourth place was Lorna Rae, of Kingston, Ontario, for her olive green tunic, made using an Islander Sewing Systems pattern.

Fifth place went to Robin Bolton of Dekalb, Illinois, who made a vibrant multi-colored dress with a lace bodice using patterns by Great Copy.

Sixth place went to Denise Severson of Janesville, Wisconsin, for her snow leopard-printed blouse, made using patterns from Petite Plus Patterns.

In seventh place was Renee Pokoj of Harrison Township, Michigan, for her embellished white T-shirt, made from an Angela Wolf pattern.

Congratulations, winners!

    I like classic tailored clothes like Nancy Roberson's pant ensemble. The number 1 is a bit too flimsy for me.
