Thank you to everyone who made the last season of Refashion Runway so much fun!
So much fun, in fact, I’m excited to announce:
Season Two of Refashion Runway!
Here’s how it’ll work:
Much like Project Runway and The Great British Sewing Bee, we’ll choose eight refashion seamstresses (or seamsters) to compete in weekly challenges. The refashions will then be scored by their fellow competitors and open to a popular vote. The scores will be combined to find a weekly winner and one competitor will be out (not without a prize for participating though). At the end of the series, whoever is left will not only receive a nice prize but will be crowned the winner of Refashion Runway: Season Two!!
If you’re interested in participating as a competitor, please fill out this form explaining why you think you’d be perfect for this competition and send before and after photographs of two of your favorite refashions to:
I had such a hard time choosing from all the amazing people who tried out last time. So, if you tried out last season and didn’t make it, I hope you’ll try again.
Tryouts will be open until September 7, 2013. We will announce the contestants and challenges on September 14, 2013. The first challenge will begin on September 21, 2013.
If you’re interested in sponsoring a prize, please contact me at:
Prize sponsors will be given a link in each sidebar of The Renegade Seamstress throughout the competition.
I’m really looking forward to seeing what Season Two will bring!

Have no idea what happened! I tried to respond from my inbox but it just sent my website….I’m NOT a spammer…LOL
Anyway, I am a new follower too and I love your blog. I don’t sew yet, but it’s on my bucket list. Your blog may be the inspiration I need to get that checked off!
I am very excited for the second season of the contest. The last one was so much fun. I honestly look forward to all of your posts!
Hi Tammy Jo,
I would consider that a huge honor if it was my blog that inspired you to start sewing. It’s such a fun hobby and now that there is an on-line community, it’s even more fun to share it with nice people like you.
Here’s to a great Season Two!
Yay! New follower here, and I’ really looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. What a great blog! 🙂
Thanks, Amy! I headed on over to your blog to check it out and you’ve got a new follower yourself. ME!
Here’s to a fun Season Two of Refashion Runway!!
Hi, Beth! I’m a little star-struck, I love your blog! Thanks for following mine 🙂 Cheers to Season Two!!
Awwwwww, you’re so sweet!!!
Very excited to see part 2, I loved the first competition and looked forward to seeing all the refashions each week. Thanks for taking the time to organize this.
You are so welcome, Ingrid! I’m really looking forward to it, too!
Season One was fun! I’m sure it’s a lot of work for you, but glad you’ve decided to run a 2nd season.
I’m glad you enjoyed Season One, too. It was definitely worth it!!!
Looking forward to all the super ideas.
I’m really looking forward to all the amazing refashions, too…. and meeting some new friends. 🙂
Looking forward to following along and sewing along.
Oh, I’m so glad you’re going to sew along. It should be fun!!
I thought about auditioning, but I am just not much of a refashioner – Plus I have a huge stash of material that I really need to do something with – so I will be sewing along with my material stash upcycling clothes. 🙂
I can’t wait to see season two! Good luck to everyone!
I agree! I’m really looking forward to meeting some new refashionistas!
Man, I wish I could sew!
Yippee!! Oh, I can’t wait to see who you choose and what categories you give them. I think I may have to sew along too! 🙂
p.s. shared via Facebook & Twitter too. I just know we’ll find some great new blogs through this!
Thanks so much! You’re right, it’s a great way to meet some new people who enjoy the same thing we do!!
Oh, I really hope you do! I always enjoyed seeing what you designed for each challenge.
Yippee, Beth! Thank you! I learned so much last time and it was so much fun to see what everyone did!
You are so welcome, Jo! I’m really looking forward to it, too!
Hooray for Season 2, AND a super big HOORAY about your book deal. I am looking forward to seeing more about that over the next few months too. The way you blog really lends itself to a book format. I love the photo with the instructions written on the image. You make everything very clear!
Thank you so much for all of your encouragement, Amy Jo!
Hoping to get chosen to take part this time!! I start My Textiles Degree Course on 23rd September, but I am sure I can fit in some upcycling too, might get to make something new to wear to Uni!!!
Maybe you could get some kind of credit for participating.
Just a thought…….
It’s “Be Good To Yourself Day” with Blondi Beachwear so to celebrate come answer the question to WIN this Hawaiian Green print coverups set.
VERY excited for season 2 and I hope I’ll have time to sew along – cause it was FUN FUN FUN!
Looking forward to seeing this next round of the contest! My schedule this fall was too busy to try out again.
