Sewing Awards

As part of the evening we will be hosting an awards ceremony to celebrate the the hard work each of you are putting in to your outfits for the evening.

To encourage everyone to enjoy the Ball and take part in the competition, we have different categories for you to choose between-

  • New Dressmaker (Sewing less than 3 years)
  • Experienced Dressmaker (Sewing for 3+ years)
  • Women’s Accessories
  • Best Dressed Male
  • Best Man’s Accessorise
  • Most Sparkly Hand Sewn Outfit


Awards will be judged by a panel at the Ball, so no need to commit to the competition until the evening itself.

We want to make the evening as accessible as possible to everyone who would like to come along.  There is no pressure to enter yourself in the competitions or even wear a handmade dress if you don’t want to or don’t find the time to sew.  The evening is a chance to celebrate our collective joy for sewing and dressmaking with like minded sewist.
