Welcome at the Compagnie M. Nore dress & T-shirt mini sewing contest! As you probably noticed Nosh organics fabrics was our fabric sponsor for the Nore dress & T-shirt pattern launch. The quality of Nosh fabrics is amazing, the prints are modern and last but not least Nosh fabrics are organic. And now probably the best news: I’m not the only person that benefits from their generosity! Nosh is sponsoring this mini Nore dress & T-shirt contest. Hooray!

The challenge

The challenge is rather straight forward. All you have to do is sew a Nore dress or T-shirt for your girl. Or several of course. Since the pattern is a beginners project everyone can win a prize. All you have to do is be creative and enjoy the contest. (By the way: hacks are allowed as long as I can recognise the original pattern.)

The prizes

Nosh & I made 5 prize packs: each pack includes a 55euro voucher to spend on Nosh fabrics, a 25euro voucher to spend in our shop AND a wallet project #17 kit of your choice!

The jury

Both Nosh and I will be part of the jury. Just the two of us. It’s a mini contest after all!

How will we evaluate your work ?

Nosh and I will both select our 10 favourite creations. We will use the criteria below to evaluate your creations:

  • Fabric selection / combination
  • Color use / combination
  • Originality
  • Attention to detail

Afterwards Lisa & Nore will pick the 5 winners randomly. The old fashioned way! Why make it more complex? The winners will be announced on the 31st of May.

How to submit your creations?

You can participate in this contest through Instagram. Just tag your creation(s) with the hashtag #compagniemnorecontest. By using this hashtag your creation will be added to the website automatically. (This might take up to one day!)

You’re allowed to tag each creation only one time. Of course you can share several pictures on Instagram or blog about the project too. But we just need the tag on one picture to keep a good overview. Thanks!

If you don’t have an Instagram account yet, I can highly recommend you to create one. If you have a private account, don’t forget to tag our page too. (@compagniemmm) I’ll manually copy the image to the website for you. For those that have no Instagram account or really don’t want to create an account. You can send one image to marte@compagnie-m.com.

This contest is open to everyone!

Doesn’t matter where you live or how experienced you are. If you feel like participating…just go for it.
