I just checked and found out that I’ve officially hit the huge, massive number of 10 official subscribers to my blog!! hip hip
I know for the rest of the more seasoned bloggers, you’re all counting by the 10’s, 50’s and hundred’s for your giveaways (which is just amazing); but I must say I’m quite elated that I have 10 followers. Being only 2 and a half months old, I’m quite happy that there are those of you out there that like to read about my various projects and general thoughts.
So to say “thank you”, I’m hosting my first giveaway.
The first item I’ll be giving away is a bit more than 3 and a half yards of an apparel/quilt fabric by Amy Butler. And as an added bonus, I’ve already prewashed it for you (since I do that with all the fabric I bring into my home). I personally love this fabric. It’s great for all seasons with the bright flowers (for spring/summer) on a darker background (fall/winter) and has a lovely Scandinavian-type design.
In addition to giving away this fun and pretty fabric, I wanted to make things even more interesting; and I’m letting you choose your own pattern of the ones below, instead of me choosing one for you. Everyone has their own taste and style, so I really wanted to make my first giveaway as inclusive as possible and let the winner choose. I have a pattern each from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and a current pattern.
The first pattern I have to offer is a Vintage DuBarry skirt pattern, 1884B in a 26 waist from the 30’s/40’s. It’s an unprinted pattern, and has 10 gores. All the pieces are here, but I bought the pattern used, via etsy.
Isn’t it sweet? I think it would look divine with a little vintage jumper, too. Don’t be swayed by the fact that it’s a 26 waist. You can easily add 1/4 inch to all of the pattern pieces at the waist to get it to fit a ‘normal’ non 26″ waist.
The second pattern option is Vintage Vogue 7494 in a size 14, or 32 bust. It’s an unprinted pattern dating from 1953.
There seems to be a decent amount of ease in the pattern, so if you’re a 34, again don’t be swayed by the fact that it’s for a 32″ bust.
The next pattern I have up for grabs is a Vintage Butterick 9695 which is dated from the early 60’s. It’s for a 34 Bust or size 14.
I love the full skirted option, don’t you?
And last but not least, I have a modern pattern to offer as well. This one is Amy Butler’s Lotus Tunic and Cami. Isn’t it cute?!
