The Refashioners 2016: Competition now CLOSED!

That!s right. Tis done! Midnight on Friday 30th September saw The Refashioners 2016 draw to a close. Sniff! Can you believe it’s been 2 months of non stop jean refashioning inspiration?!!

The refashioners 2016 is now closed

We’re not quite done yet obviously. There’s the small matter of choosing the winners. And that my friends, is going to be a mammoth task! The sheer number and quality of this year’s entries has been overwhelming. Not to mention the surge in last minute entries has left me with a ton of  blog reading to do! I still want to share some of those entries with you. So here’s the plan:

  • Winners will be announced on Friday 14th October
  • Between now and then, I’ll be sharing even more entries


Why the “delay”? I read every blog post/social media post because I want to give proper consideration to each and every entry. You lot have put your heart and soul into it this year (in a way I haven’t seen in previous series) and THAT deserves to be reciprocated by me. But it’s a big task. I also have some private stuff going on at the moment that is eating up my time like you wouldn’t imagine. So I would beg your patience until 14th Oct, ‘cos it’s just little ole me steering this big hairy mammoth that this years series has become. (But boy, that’s a great problem to have, right?!)

Thank you in advance for that….and thank you a million times over to all the bloggers who shared their creativity and time in August……and to all of you who have done the same.


Stay tuned 😉

    Hi Portia,
    Likewise I’m astounded by the volume of entries you have received for this challenge. A massive amount of creativity, resourcefulness, inspiration and drive has gone into them, not to mention a large quantity of denim! I’ve really enjoyed looking at everybody’s work, and well done to whoever wins.
    Looking forward to next year!

    Thank-you so much for hosting this challenge! This year was the first time I heard about the challenge, and so it was the first time I participated. I wasn’t sure if I would join in, as I am not really a denim girl, but I am so glad that I did choose to enter. The challenge definitely stretched my sewing “muscles” and it was really fun to be a part of something like this. So thank-you again for all of the creativity, and for hosting this amazing event. I’m definitely looking forward to next year!
