Sewing Challenge

Myself and Sharlene  met on Instagram  a few years ago. She rescued a near disaster after noticing I had cut my lining wrong for my Rumana coat. Following this we have chatted and inspired each other ever since.  

We both love Fashion and love to recreate looks that inspire us. Here are our favourites we will be sharing more during the weeks.


Our inspiration comes from many avenues:

*You lovely Sewist via your IG grids

*New patterns from our super talented Indie Company’s 




*Retail Shops – my favourite Anthropologie 

*Google Adverts


*Movies and TV programs

*Sharlene’s Sunday Inspirations @SoSewDressMaking 

We are going to encourage you to ReCreate your Look. It can be from any inspiration something high end or replica of someone you follow creation you, let’s face it we all inspire each other (as long as you credit them) Open to all Sewist’s from beginner to advanced.

This challenge will take place during the month of July.

Week 1 Finding and sharing our inspirational image 

Week 2 Planning the fabric and pattern combinations 

Week 3 Sneak Peaks 

Week 4 Reveal Day Saturday 31st July 

We have some amazing sponsors (details to follow) During the 4 weeks in progress we will be choosing one winner to receive one per week.

After reveal date 31st July we will be choosing 3 prize winners from those who show us the most dedication to their look. We really don’t want this to be luck of the draw, we encourage you to use this month to create something you will cherish forever. Something you have imagined since you started sewing. Something that makes your heart sing! Play to your strengths this isn’t about being the best Sewist this is your vision no matter how you approach it.

Please tag Jen and Sharlene in your posts we can share in stories. We are here every step of the way if you require any help or advice. We also encourage you to reach out to the sewing community with decision making by doing a poll or asking questions in your stories. It would be amazing to save these in your highlights to look back on your progress at the end of this month.

Due to postage for prizes it will be UK only but we would still love you to join us wherever in the world. 

Enjoy this is a fun challenge.

We cannot wait to see what you super talented Sewist’s create.

Jen and Sharlene xx
