What a year! While still of modest size compared to many sewing blogs out there, I'm thrilled that people (hundreds, in fact!) who I am not related to and who are not friends of my mother actually read this. Not that I'm not thrilled that my friends and family read it... isn't it a little bit strange that we measure the success of a blog by the number of total strangers reading it?
Anyway, strangers, to say thank you for sticking with me, I'm doing a little giveaway!
While I have yet to make a garment from a vintage pattern, that absolutely does not keep me from admiring (and purchasing!) them. Since I have not yet found anywhere in New York that has them, I went to the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse (in Oakland, CA) while I was back in the Bay Area for Christmas. If you live in the bay, I would highly recommend a trip. In addition to a yard of a very soft eggplant rayon knit, I picked up these for me...
And these for two of you!
On the left: McCalls 7397 in a size 10 (25" waist). I really love the yoke on the skirt. I'd be interested to see the pants as shorts too!
On the right: Vogue 2840 in a size 16 (38" bust, 40" hip). So cute!
So - if you would like to win one of these patterns, please leave a comment in this post by 11:59PM EST on Tuesday, January 8th with your email address (if it is not in your blogger profile or listed on your blog) and which pattern you would like! If you're open to both, just say so and I'll enter you for both drawings. Or, if you don't specify at all then I'll enter you for both. I'll ship anywhere. Good luck!
