  • Design notes describing your garment and inspiration.

Extra points will be given for:

  • Photos of your test toile on a model or dress form.

Please do not submit your entry as a Reel or Video. These are difficult to keep track of as they don’t show up consistently in hashtags. 

Finalist entries will be selected based on the strength of the design as a whole, unique ideas + cohesive fit with the Sophie Hines design aesthetic. Please keep in mind the accessibility and ease of sewing for the average home sewist. Check out our special Design Guide with tips for a successful submission! 

The design sheets are available for at-home printing, or import them into your favorite drawing app and save some paper! 

The download link will be emailed to you after checkout. It will arrive in a PDF file format. Simply open and print at 100% without scaling. You can download the file up to three (3) times, so make sure you download it on your personal computer and keep it filed in a safe place.

Alternately, you can save the PNG image files straight from this listing!
