Pattern Giveaway of the Century: Part Deux

You are all so amazing!  I can't believe that I now have over 200 followers!  You know what that means?  Giveaway time!!  I really appreciate all of you stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere and for being so encouraging and supportive!

Plus this giveaway marks another celebration for me.  I just started an amazing new job this week and I am absolutely loving it! 

So this is titled the 'Pattern Giveaway of the Century Part 2' and like last time, I'm giving away one pattern for each decade from the 1930's to the 1960's.  All you have to do to enter is be a follower of this blog and leave a comment below by Wednesday the 13th of October.  I'll announce the winners on Friday the 15th and will ship your pattern to you anywhere in the world!

The patterns in the giveaway are...

From 1930's is Simplicity pattern #2844 for an adorable tennis/exercise outfit that includes a blouse, shorts and matching skirt in a size 16 (Bust 34).  I absolutely love the skirts that open up to show matching shorts underneath.  Perfect for autumn or spring!


From 1945 is this perfect office ready outfit from McCall (#6019) in a size 16 or 34 Bust.  I absolutely love the waist detailing and the lines of the skirt and bolero on this pattern.  It has a Foley Bros sticker and some quick research found that Foley Brothers was founded in Houston, Texas in 1900 and was acquired by the Federated Department Stores, Inc in 1947 (so this sticker must be original to the time the pattern was bought in the store!)



Here's a pattern for everyone!  From the 1950's (1950 to be exact) is this set of collars from McCall's 1521.  It is in a size 14" to 15" necksize.


 This pattern is very useful and great for refashioning garments.  I used it to refashion my stretch knit top with a peter pan collar (View F) to match a skirt I made:


Moving right along to the 1960's (1966) and Simplicity #6933 with a one-piece go-go dress and fabulous coat.  This is a size 16 or Bust 36.  The epitome of the 1960's look.  I love the detail of the stitching on the dress:



How to Enter the Giveaway:
  1. You must be a follower of this blog to enter the giveaway. 
  2. Just leave a comment on this post by Wednesday the 13th of October and let me know which pattern you would like.  You can say  "all of them" and I will enter you into the drawing for each separate pattern.
  3. You can get another entry if you post this giveaway on your own blog.  Just leave another comment and let me know that you've mentioned the giveaway on your blog.
I'll do a random drawing for each pattern on Friday the 15th and will post the results.  Please check back then.  I'll ship anywhere in the world.

Thanks again for all your comments and support on my sewing journey!  And happy sewing everyone!!

  5. I'm going for the 1930's and the 1950's. i'd say the 60's too but it is kinda similar to the one I won last time!! Speaking of, I found a fabulous lime green and turquoise plaid for the jacket, maybe sounds a little crazy but its great!

  49. Debi - They're all lovely patterns - but no need to enter me. I just wanted to say congrats on over 200 followers! I remember when you were excited about 100, and that wasn't that long ago.

    Maybe by the time you hit 300 (or 400?) I will have finally learned to sew - and then I will happily have you throw my name in the hat.

    LOVE that gorgeous knit top with peter pan color, by the way. Those colors are perfect on you.

  73. Oh wow, another 100 already! Hardly surprising with all your gorgeous projects, I really need to get myself into gear and finish some projects!

    I have resisted entering but I might just have to be cheeky and enter for the 30s thru 50s. I got outbid on the very same shorts set from Simplicity (http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Simplicity_3607_A) and I am loving that unusual skirt shape from the 40s.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hello! I've already entered once, but have mentioned your great giveaway on my blog, so would like to submit another entry for the 1960s Simplicity pattern #6933.
    Thanks!
