Yay! I'm holding my first giveaway!
Debi of My Happy Sewing Place is hosting Sew Grateful 2013 which I think is a lovely tradition - a week of giveaways, tutorials, and projects that celebrate the online sewing community and all it has given us. For me, the online sewing community is absolutely priceless in the information and inspiration shared. I am extremely grateful for all the wonderful seamstresses and seamsters out there who have taught me to sew (whether they know it or not), and who are also an indispensable part of my day in terms of the entertainment and enjoyment I get from reading about their lives and sewing adventures. So I am happy to kick off the first (of hopefully many) giveaways here on my blog as part of the online festivities organized by Debi. And this also fulfills one of my sewing resolutions for 2013. How convenient!
The patterns are a selection of 1970s styles, which I hope some people besides me appreciate (Lisette!). I'm giving all three away to one lucky person. First up is Simplicity 5341, a fantastic flow-y blouse with various neckline and sleeve options. I actually have a blouse like this already and it makes a fantastic summertime beach cover-up.
Next is Simplicity 9313. Ooh, this one is a little difficult to part with. I think the sleeves on style 1 are so interesting. Please, future pattern winner, make this version up and show us your results. Please?
Finally we have Simplicity 6157, a classic princess seamed shirt dress. I actually won this in a previous giveaway, but I'm not giving it away cuz I don't love it! I'm only giving this away because I have more than one shirt dress is my pattern collection. Otherwise I would selfishly keep it for me me me.
There you have it! Just leave a comment below (make sure I can find your email through your profile or sumthin... I've never done this before), and I will draw a winner at the end of Sew Grateful Week. Whooo!
EDIT - I'm such a noob to this. Forgot to say that I'll ship these anywhere (by the slowest cheapest method possible). And since giveaway protocol requires I ask something of you... well, why don't you post a link to something that is inspiring your sewing these days? I always like to look at inspiration photos.
