Very Vintage Dressmaking Competition

This year we’re looking for vintage lovers who are nifty with a needle!

This competition is open to enthusiastic home dressmakers and crafters from all over NZ.

2021 Competition details


To celebrate our Boot Scootin’ Ball, we’re setting you a whip-cracking challenge…

Show us your WESTERN themed makes!

We want to see a whole western themed outfit, either a dress, top/skirt, top/pants, playsuit, jumpsuit… anything that is a fully formed outfit. We don’t expect you to make your own shoes or accessories, but part of the judging will be on the complete look, so make sure it all works!
