As a crafter you might know this: Sometimes you are planning a garment or an accessory to go with a specific piece. But more often than not, your knitting and
sewing projects are not necessarily related to each other. And thus, are pretty as unique pieces, but do not result in a matching outfit. This happens to me all the time. Aiming for a handmade
wardrobe my cupboard is full of knitted pieces that I often just wear with jeans in want of a better combination. It's time to change that. It's time to have a concept. CLOTHES FRIENDS is
a magazine with knitting and sewing patterns that form an outfit.
Are you designing sewing, knitting or crochet patterns? Please join in. I would like to invite every designer to participate, irrespective of whether you are an experienced or an aspiring designer. What would you like to wear next season? Envision it, sketch it, submit it.
You can submit more than one design. Your design can be a knitted garment or an accessory, a sewn garment or a crocheted piece. It can also be a hybrid of two crafts. The best would be, if you thought of an entire outfit and sketched it in a handdrawn or digital draft. If you are able to submit for example a knitted piece together with a design for a sewn garment, all the better. Think of the fashion that you would like to wear and bring it to life. Please find all the other details in the Design Brief.
Of course everyone is invited to submit, no matter what your background, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion or ability is. Please do all feel very warmly welcomed.
