A hand-me-down sweater … a raggedy old skirt from the thrift store … a plain T-shirt … all of these items can be repurposed into new, fashionable finds with just a few tools and a little creativity. We invite you to submit your own altered and embellished clothing items to be considered for publication in Altered Couture. Items published in the past include skirts, dresses, pants, tops, jackets, vests, shoes, and accessories.

Please submit a “before” photo along with your altered creation, if available. Photos and illustrations showing your process are also strongly encouraged. We also encourage you to submit to our challenges below.
Deadline: June 15th

Mixed & Matched Patterns
Combining festive patterns and textures is a trend we love that truly shows off the funky personality of the artist behind the design. In our newest challenge, we’d like to see all of the creative ways our readers can accomplish mixing patterns together in clothing items, accessories, and shoes. Stripes with polka dots, florals with Hawaiian prints, plaid with lace — we want to see it all! Whether adding texture treatments, embellishments, or embroidery details to your patterned pieces, or cutting them up and giving them a face lift, we can’t wait to see where your imagination will take you.
Deadline: June 15, 2017

Self-portrait Dolls
We loved Ramona Louise’s self-portrait dolls from our Winter 2016 Issue (Nov/Dec/Jan) so much that they inspired us to present a challenge to make one of your own. Create a self-portrait doll that represents YOU in some way, shape, or form. It can be a funny rendition of you in caricature style or a serious interpretation of yourself. It can symbolize your wishes and dreams, you as a child, you engaging in a favorite activity or hobby, or whatever you feel characterizes you! Put some thought into it. Sketch out ideas. Think about who you are and what makes you unique, and then translate that to portray yourself in doll form. This is going to be so much fun and we can’t wait to see what you create! Results will be published in our Winter 2017 Issue.
Deadline: June 15, 2017

      Hi Lynda,

      It varies depending on the publication and the type of article, but yes, we compensate the artists. If you would like to inquire about compensation for a specific magazine, then you will need to contact the editor directly via their email address (they are all listed on https://stampington.com/contact-us). Please let me know if you have any questions.
