300 Followers Giveaway

I'm delighted to host another giveaway as a thank you to all my lovely readers!  Thanks for all your support and enthusiasm for the Sewing Through the Decades Challenge--I am super excited about it!

You may have noticed that I am planning to sew up a pattern (or a couple) from Lauren's Wearing History Reproduction Patterns line as well as Tasia's new pattern from the Sewaholic patterns line.  I'm delighted to offer up two patterns in this giveaway: 1) your choice of one of Lauren's Wearing History patterns and 2) Tasia's Pendrell blouse pattern (or a credit for Tasia's next pattern).

Here's a sample of some of Lauren's patterns to choose from:
1) Fabulous 1940's sailor girl playsuit:

2) Brand new 1930's blanket coat pattern:

3) Lovely 1930's hats (I have this pattern):

4) Chic Ahoy! Super cute 1930's outfit:

5) Smooth Sailing--Classic 1930's trousers and blouse:

There are a few more patterns that you can choose from (including, beach trousers, a swimsuit and tap pants!!!), check out the whole range at the Wearing History etsy shop.

Also up for grabs is Tasia's new Pendrell blouse pattern:

Tasia's currently hosting a sew-along for this blouse pattern (I'm sewing this one up too!)  Not to worry if you already have this pattern, if you win and you want you can get a credit for the next Sewaholic pattern.

This giveaway is open to everyone.  You just need to be a follower of this blog and leave a comment below by Friday the 14th of January stating which pattern you want (or if you want to be put in for both the Wearing History and Sewaholic patterns, just say 'enter me for both').  I'll pick one winner on Friday for each pattern line and it includes the pattern AND shipping to anywhere in the world! 

I absolutely adore these patterns and looking forward to sharing the talents of these two lovely ladies with you!
