I am new here but I am not new to sewing per say.
I have sewn 18th century mens clothing and a parka, bibs and mittens when I was dog sledding, and dog jackets, booties and harnesses for my dogs.
Thus my interest in the three peice suit and shirts is something I have no knowledge of and am learning.
With that said I was wondering if there are competitions for such things.
When I was a taxidermist they have competitions for it.
So I was wondering if there is for suit making, or whatever it would be called.
Not that I am anywhere near that, just wondering.

Golden Shears is open to all apprentices around the country along with fashion students, class or master would need to register. Not to sure how it works.
