Now that the leaves are changing outside, I love to start pulling out all of my autumn wardrobe pieces and begin daydreaming about making myself new pieces for the season. Out of everything that starts to resurface, I love the chance to start wearing a jacket every day again. They're among my most favorite things to sew and they can dress up any outfit.

Have you ever made your own jacket? If so, we'd love to see! Upload a picture of any jacket you've created to the SewStylish Jacket Challenge gallery, and you could win more than $700 in prizes!

For more details, check out the contest description. You can upload pictures of jackets you made from any pattern, or even from your original designs.

Enter Now!

Some gorgeous, creative jackets are posted here, made by fabulous seamstresses. I wish I could sew as beautifully, and I don't envy the judges for having to choose between them.

Good luck to all!

nancynancy writes: Loyl, when I entered the contest a few days ago I simply clicked on the "ENTER NOW!" link above. Unfortunately, I just tested it, and this time I was surprised to see that nothing happened.

Entries were supposed to be allowed "before October 18th," which I assumes means up through the 17th. You might want to call the SewStylish office first thing Monday morning to see if they can help you. Here's the toll free number: 800-309-9262.

In the mean time, I recommend you enter your jackets in the regular gallery with a statement that you intended for these items to be included in the contest. Good luck.
