Some of you might be asking What is Refashion Runway Anyway?
As a refresher, Refashion Runway is a friendly sewing competition.
Here’s how it works:
Much like Project Runway and The Great British Sewing Bee, we’ll choose eight refashion seamstresses (or seamsters) to compete in weekly challenges. The contestants will send in before and after videos or photos. I will post all of the before and after photos and/or videos so you can vote for your favorite. The refashions will then be scored by judges 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.
It’s such a great way to meet new people who love to do the same thing we do.

Season Five of Refashion Runway was so much fun and also huge success!
The Statement Sleeve Challenge started Refashion Runway: Season Five off with a bang.
It had me hooked from the moment I opened up the email with Beki’s unique sleeves made from candy wrappers and window screen to Deana’s magnificent sleeves made from a man’s suit.
