Wow, that was a really tough choice! Our Finlayson Photo Contest ended at noon PST today and I had a lot of amazing photos to choose from. Thank you for carefully sewing, wrangling up a model, and taking such lovely photo shoots!
Congratulations to our three winners:
Mary sewed Variation 1 and took gorgeous wintery photos of her husband, Kyle, wearing his new sweater at Falls Park in Pendleton, Indiana. These will be the main photos of the Finlayson on our website!
Roni sewed Variation 2 featuring an eye catching contrast hood lining. Her brother did a great job modelling! This will be the secondary photo of the Finlayson in our shop. Thanks, Roni!
And, lastly, from the increasingly large and varied selection of Finlaysons on Instagram at #finlaysonsweater we’ve chosen this gorgeous Finlayson (with lots of interesting RTW inspired modifications) sewn by Andrea’s daughter for Andrea’s son and shared by Andrea @fabricepiphanies. I’ve contacted you via Instagram, Andrea!
While I couldn’t choose everyone as winners for this contest, I must show off some of the hard work you guys went to and the wonderfully wearable garments that resulted:

Thank you to all who took part in this contest! If you are inspired to sew the Finlayson Sweater after viewing all of these versions (I know I am!), head over to the shop to claim your PDF or tissue pattern.
Now it’s time for me to edit and resize the winner’s photos to update our old and not-so-great website shots of the Finlayson…wahoo!
