Castaway to Couture

Castaway to Couture is an exciting, national re-fashioning competition, open to the public!
This competition is brought to you by the Australian Sewing Guild Ltd. and major sponsor Baby Lock Australia.
May is National Sewing month and to celebrate we once again bring you Castaway to Couture! The idea is simple –
·         Buy a garment (or a few) at any Op Shop, or raid your wardrobe, and snap a ‘before’ pic.
·         Use your awesome sewing skills to re-fashion it into something new.
·         Take photos during the construction stage and of the finished garment.
·         Submit photos to with a short description (maximum 500 words) of the design inspiration, construction process and garment purpose.  Photos will be posted to the ASG Blog.
·         Ask your friends to vote for you and vote for your favourite re-fashions.
Go to the ASG website for conditions of entry, rules, judging criteria and entry forms.
