**** Update: giveaway has now closed! Thanks to everyone who came by. 🙂 ****
Yeah I know, creative title, right? Say it like it is, and all that.
Anyway, it’s that fabulous time of year again – Sew Grateful week, hosted by the super-lovely Debi!
And first up is Sew Grateful giveaway day – a chance to give a little something back to the online sewing community.
This year, I’ve decided to give a bit of vintage sewing pattern happiness away. Two patterns, in fact. To two different people.
Here’s what I’m giving away….
A 6-piece overdress from the 1960’s (good for Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men challenge, perhaps??). Size is 38″ bust, 40″ hip. (And when they say 6-piece, they really mean it – front, back, front facing, back neck facing, and both sides of armhole facings. And done!)
And just in case you feel like indulging in a bit of selfless sewing, here’s a men’s shirt pattern, from sometime in the 1950’s probably. The interesting thing about this one – the button placket only goes about half-way down the shirt, rather than being a full-length button-down. The size for this little piece of retroness is 14 1/2″ neck.
Now, I haven’t checked either of these patterns – they came sealed in plastic bag things, and they’re still in ’em. So here’s hoping they’re complete! Either way, you get some nice retro envelope art, right? 😉
Interested in being in to win one? Comment below and let me know which one you’re most interested in. I’ll draw the winners this Sunday, 2 March.
