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:
