Winner of the Summer Sewing Challenge
It was a tough choice, but the Threads editors put their heads together and poured over the 90 entries we received in our Summer Sewing Challenge--Express Yourself in Linen. But, one entrant in particular stood out from the crowd with not one, but a few, standout garments made in linen. We had to choose just one winning garment so with that, we're proud to announce that the winner is Trishapat with her Mother of the groom dress. We were wowed by the foliage inspired embellishment along the neckline made from bias tubes of linen. There's an architectural, yet subtle, graceful quality to the dress that we all agreed was perfect for the occasion in which it was designed. Congratulations, Trishapat! We hope you enjoy your new 1100D serger from Janome.
Check out her beautiful dress below, along with some of her other stunning creations. In addition, we've chosen a few of our other favorite submissions to share with you. There were so many great garments and beautiful designs it's always hard to pick just one. We hope you are as inspired as we were in looking at all of these amazing linen garments!
Thank you to all of the entrants! Look for more Threads challenges to enter soon.
