Jasmine chose Butterick 5966 for this lightweight wool flannel coat.

The national Make It With Wool competition (MIWW) promotes wool’s beauty and versatility and recognizes excellence and creativity in garment sewing and knitting. Garments must be made from fashion fabrics and yarns that are at least 60 percent wool-including specialty fibers, such as mohair, alpaca, camel, and llama. Contestants compete in skill categories and age groups: 13- to 16-year-olds compete as juniors; those 17 to 24 compete as seniors; and 25 and over compete as adults. State winners advance to the national judging round, which is in January. The Adult and Fashion/Apparel Design winners are preselected and receive all-expenses-paid trips to the national competition to model their creations. Here, Threads highlights seven individuals who won awards in the January 2016 national judging round.

National Machine Embroidery Winner

Jasmine Powell
Havre, Montana

For her eye-catching dress, Jasmine used New Look 6392 in a blue-and-black wool jacquard challis. The dress has a flattering boat neckline and a pleated skirt. She selected Butterick 5966 for the coat because she liked its concealed button placket and design lines. The coat is made from a lightweight wool flannel. Jasmine used iridescent blue, green, and white thread with a twin needle to stitch abstract lines on the stand collar, sleeve hems, and front closure. The white cheetah-print polyester lining is embellished with heat-fixed glitter flakes and tiny silver studs for a sparkling surprise inside the coat.
