I won the EvaDress contest....and a giveaway!!

I'm sooooooo excited! I heard the news that I won first prize for 'Best Use of Pattern in its Original Form' for my 1933 dress:
Yippeeeee...I want to thank all of you who voted for me!  Also a big thank you to those who've congratulated me and the lovely Sarah, who cohosts the Sewing through the Decades Challenge with me for doing a blog post about it (you are so sweet!).

Giveaway:
That said, winning is so much sweeter when you can share it!  I would like to host a giveaway for followers of this blog to choose any EvaDress pattern you would like as the prize.  The giveaway will include the pattern and shipping to anywhere!  Just leave a comment on this post, with the EvaDress pattern you'd like to win, before midnight EST on April 7th and you'll be included.

  1. Congrats on the win! The dress you made is beautiful! And thank you for the chance to win a pattern! I just love the simple elegance of E30-6719 1930's Evening Gown. The big bow on the back tops it off, I love it!

  2. That's awesome, and your dress looks great! I've always wanted to try an EvaDress pattern but I haven't gotten around to it, I'd like to try T40-3322 after I saw someone else make pants from it and looked amazing.

  3. Great giveaway. My Favorite is the 1940's reproduction overalls, Sp40-4536. I really want to make a pair of these because I work for a company that makes commercial airplanes. And they made airplanes during WWII also. So, some of my historic co-workers probably wore coveralls exactly like these.

  4. Congratulations! Well deserved in my opinion! I'd love to try the E30-1965. I have been eying this one for a while! Again, good job!

  5. Congratulations! What a gorgeous frock. I also would love to try an EvaDress pattern. I actually have a few in my inspiration notebook, but it would be the decision of the century to pick one. E30-9906 1938 Frock, NL30-1402 1935 Nightgown, B30-1465 Ladies' Blouse? Beautiful stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wow, congratulations! And thanks so much for the give-away, I love them! :)
    I'd really like D40-1979 as I've wanted to try a pinafore style dress since I saw yours, and this one has really cute shaping under the bust :)
    Thanks again!

  7. I see why you won. It is a magnificent creation. Love all of it. And you look ever so lovely too.

  8. Congratulations! I love your dress, and it was a deserving win!

    It's so hard to choose from all of the amazing patterns they have. Right now, I'm stuck between the #1379 Ladies' Dinner Dress, circa 1934 and the #1930 Ladies' Trousers, Overalls and Bellhop Jacket, Circa 1936. I'd probably go with the dress, though. Those kick pleats!

  9. Congratulations Debi, you earned that win with a magnificent outfit and overall look!!! Well done! I'd love to enter your amazing giveaway too please. I'm overwhelmed with the gorgeous Eva Dress patterns so I think I' like to choose a pattern IF I'm lucky enough to win ;o)

  10. Congratulations on winning! This is what i'd like from the EvaDress site..

    http://www.evadress.com/880.html

    There are so many pretty things that it's hard to choose though!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow, I'm so happy for you! Must be great to win! It is obvious you have put a lot of love and effort into making your dress so you really deserved the win :)

    If I win the giveaway, I would love to get this dress: http://www.evadress.com/9797.html from circa 1927. I have never made anything from that era but I would really love to, and that frock looks so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Congratulations! It is beautiful :)

    I love EVERYTHING on the Eva site, but I think this one has to be my favorite:
    SE50-9113 Three-Piece Suit, circa 1952

    Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congratulations! You did a lovely job. I've got an EvaDress wishlist, but I think E30-1655 (1930s evening gown) is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Congratulations! I loved so many of the entries, but your photos looked so atmospheric that they showed off your dress so well; they could have been taken in the '30s.

    As for the give away: Oh oh oh! I've been coveting E30-8212 1936 Evening Gown. My birthday is next week, so it would be a wonderful present ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congrats! That dress is stunning so no wonder you won =)
    EvaDress is full of pretty patterns and it was impossible to choose one pattern so I picked two. Both of them are very feminine and cute. If i would have to choose from these two it would be very tough, but I might turn to the 30's dress, but only because the colour is so pretty on the sample picture and I already have light pink chiffon ready waiting for 30's dress to sew.
    D40-6000 1945 Dress
    D30-6490 German Afternoon Frock & Coat, circa 1935

  16. Congratulations! Your's was the best by far. I love Eva Dress patterns and though simple, my little heart is set on the 1940s Overalls, Playsuit & Jacket. I desperately need vintage overalls, and what better than to have perfectly fitting ones, constructed by moi!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Congrats, the dress is gorgeous, I can see why you won! I love the NL40-44 the 1940's nightgowns! I don't have any nightgown patterns and would love something other than t-shirts and boxers to sleep in!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Congratulations Debi, your entry completely deserved to win!

    I love the B30-7389 Ladies' Blouses, circa 1938 - I'd love to make it in a pretty polka dot heavy silk.

    Thank you for another great giveaway, and congratulations again!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Your dress is gorgeous, congrats!

    I would love to make the Sp40-9046 swimsuit this summer! I am sadly in need of a new one!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Congratulations! You definitely deserved to win.

    I'm a bit in love with the D50-4292 (Group B). The silhouette is gorgeous, and who doesn't love a bow!?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congrats! Your dress and jacket are just fantastic!
    EvaDress has so many patterns to choose from, either SE30-1684 or D40-1979

    ReplyDelete
  22. That dress most definitely should have won - congrats!
    I love the D40-9485 Day Frock - such great style...thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Congratulations! You deserved the win no doubt about it!

    There are so many gorgeous dresses to choose from but I fell for the 1930 Tea Frocks D30-1011 head over heels.

  24. Congrats on the win! You deserved it, the dress and jacket are lovely.

    Sp30-3516 1935 One-Piece Sports Outfit, I don't know why but I find this pattern so cute, it also seems so practical.

  25. Congratulations!!

    I love the SP-108 sarong dress--what can I say, I am a sucker for a good sarong!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congratulations, you really deserve the win.

    I'd love either SE40-6067 or D40-1979 should I win.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So awesome! But then, you already know how much I love that jacket :).

    Picking just one Evadress pattern, now that's hard... I'll go with the SE30-7531 1933 Ensemble, but there are some awfully close contenders (not the least of which is the Katherine Hepburn pattern, but since I have already knocked it off I probably don't need a second version (even a "correct" one).

    Congratulations again---well deserved!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am so glad you won. After seeing this, I had to go and buy the pattern. Now I just have to make it:)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Congratulations! That jacket is spectacular!

    I'd never heard of Eva dress patterns before. I had fun looking at their website, and I'd start with this one: http://www.evadress.com/6573.html

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congratulations Debbie! You truly deserved to win this. Your dress is amazing and really fits the category of best use. Take time to be proud of yourself! By the way this is one of the nicest giveaways ever. I would love to try the B30-7389 Ladies' Blouses, circa 1938 - it would be great under some vintage suits that I'm hoping to make.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I loved your work on this pattern. It is so eye-catching. :) I want that jacket pattern, but can't think of where I'd wear it. I think I'd go with the 1936 evening dress E30-8212. (http://www.evadress.com/8212.html). It is hard to choose though.

    Thanks for the generous giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oops, I feel terrible, I just noticed that I spelled your name wrong. I meant to say Congratulations Debi!

  33. Congrats!!! YAY! I voted for you!
    So many patterns on my wish list, but I do really want this one. The contest was great for seeing how things made up! Now I super duper want it :)

  34. Congratulations, your a worthy winner! you're going to have afield day selecting all your patterns! I can't wait to see what you create with them,

    Peronsally, I have been savouring over the very pattern you posted about previously - SE50-8433 Three-Piece Ensemble, circa 1951 - the jacket is to die for!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Congrats on your win! What a fabulous dress! I love the details on the shoulders!

    If I were able to pick a pattern I would have to pick T40-3322 Ladies' Wide Leg Trousers and Overalls, circa 1940. I'm 6' tall and pants rarely fit let alone overalls. I'd love to be able to make a fabulous pair that actually fit me.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congratulations, Debi! You certainly deserve it, you did such an amazing job. What a gorgeous outfit!

    (no giveaway for me, I sadly know I will not have time to sew for a long time...but a lovely thought on your part!)

  37. Congratulations. It's such a lovely outfit and a well deserved win.

    I would pick U40-4994 Brassiere and Panties. I'm obsessed with making vintage lingerie.

  38. Congratulations Debi! That's so exciting about your win :) You totally deserve it since you honor vintage patterns so often in your weekly sewing! I really love the whole look of your entry photo (and remember seeing it on the Sew Weekly!).

    I loved Adey's version of this dress http://evadress.com/9906.html and would love to give it a try :) Thanks for hosting!

  39. Congratulations! I've been wanting to see another version of the pattern you made since I spotted it in Threads a few years ago. I'd love to win and would like the collar, cape and muff pattern from the 30s. http://www.evadress.com/6474.html Thanks again and SO jealous you get to live in Scotland! From Heather K

    ReplyDelete
  40. So glad to see you won! You did such a fantastic job with the dress and jacket - stunning : )

    I can't decide between the 1930's tea frock D30-1011 and the SP-948 30's frock - they're both so pretty!! I guess I'll go with the tea frock - it would be perfect for the Summer ; )

    ReplyDelete
  41. Congratulations, Debi! Your outfit and photos are lovely, and you absolutely deserved to win! I'd really like to have the 1950s sarong pattern, SP-108 Ladies' Sarong. I found some deep pink fabric recently with shells printed all over it that I think would be a really cute sarong dress. I don't have the time currently to try and draft one myself and I really love this pattern. It's perfect! You're so sweet to share your prize, too. It only makes me think you deserved to win even more!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, how lovely! Congratulations!! I'm sure you're thrilled :) And, also, how sweet of you to share. My favorite is E30-371 the 1930s evening frock, slip, and short cape. I was just admiring its fluttery shape last night.

  43. Hi Debbie, I really enjoy your blog. Thanks for the ooportunity to win an EvaDress pattern:) I like the B30-7482 Ladies' Blouse, circa 1936.

  44. Debi I am so very happy for you! You totally deserved to win because your outfit still makes my jaw drop! And you are being so generous by offering one of us the chance to win a pattern of our own! If it were me, I would go gaga over B30-1572 Blouse, circa 1934 because it is Fabulous with a capital F. Thank you for sharing this with us, and congratulations again!

    The pattern I'd love to win is E40-3162, because I sooo want to make a jacket like that! The neckline of the dress is also just wonderful. (I seem to have a soft spot for square necklines lately.)

  55. Congratulations! You definitely deserved first place, such a gorgeous jacket! And thank so much for sharing your prize - if it was me I would have saved it all for myself! I've got a list of patterns I want from Eva Dress, unfortunately I've made a pact not to buy any patterns this year. Winning a pattern doesn't count right? ;-) I would love to try T30 - 1930's Ladies' Trousers though - I've always wanted to own a pair of vintage trousers, and who can say no to a matching jacket right?

    Well done again! x

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hooray for you!!! I had a feeling you would win this award, I have never seen such a pretty vintage garment as the one you have sewn here. I hope you wear it often! Okay, I like D30-9906 1938 Frock for the giveaway. Wow, this is a honor for you, so happy for you!

    ReplyDelete
  57. A BIG congratulations, Debi!!!! Wow--give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done! :) Have you spent the last day walking on air about winning? ;)

    Oooh! The giveaway sounds like such fun! Ever the practical girl, I have to say that this 30s playsuit is appealing to me: http://www.evadress.com/2997.html (We've had really warm, humid weather all week--time to break out the summer clothes!)

  58. So many congratulations, you really do deserve it! From the moment I saw your photos I knew it would be ridiculous if you didn't win :) I'd love the German afternoon frock and coat if I win (http://www.evadress.com/6490.html), thanks for the giveaway and again huge congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Debi well done- I'm so glad you won - well deserved!!! It is such an amazing and classy ensemble.

  61. Congrats! You look striking.

    Since I'd love to make a cape, I'd choose SE30-1399- The ladies'3 piece ensemble circa 1934.

  62. You deserve it!

    Though I'm tempted to pick something more dramatic, I know I'd really wear this: D30-9906 1938 Frocks. I love the short sleeves.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Yay, well done! I can't say I'm very surprised though, it was quite a creation!
    I am very taken by the SE30-2165 Ladies' Three-Piece Ensemble, circa 1936, I've been inspired by your suit sewing!

  64. Your Kate dress is awesome, congrats on the win!

  69. Wow-look at all the hopefuls for an EvaDress pattern! I'll add my comment for consideration.
    I'm so happy your project won the contest--it was far and away the best.
    I've been drooling over a Claire McCardell repro sheath pattern from EvaDress for months now: D50-4292. It's just divine! I think I'd fall into the Group B sizing.
    Anyway, congratulations on your win!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Congratulations! I'm amazed by your skills. I would love to try T40-9016 (1945 Trousers & Clam Diggers); I've just finished my first pair of semi-successful shorts, and would love to try those trousers. With pair of suspenders, super awesome...

    ReplyDelete
  71. Congratulations. What a fabulous news. I'm so glad you won. Your sewing has come on so brilliantly over the last year. You're such an inspiration to me. Hadn't been over to EvaDress before. There are some gorgeous patterns. I especially like the 1938 frocks (multisize). I love the gathering over the bust, and flowing skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh yay, a huge congrats to you!! I'm so happy to hear you won.

    I love the EvaDress patterns, if I won I'd love the Wide Leg Trousers and Overalls pattern, for once I feel my sewing skills are up to the task. :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Good for you, you totally deserved the win!! It's ladies like you who are inspiring me to start sewing more for myself and it's got to be better for the environment and you know when you make something that slave labor is not being used! I think Sk40-5817 would be a good starter pattern for me and I love the 1940s.

    ReplyDelete
  74. congrats on the win. there are so many lovely patterns o the site its hard to decide but I thonk NL30-1416 Nightgown and Bed Cape(sz14) is the one I would love.

  77. Congratulations Debi, your outfit is gorgeous! It really brings the design to life.
    I have to say you make me want that pattern something awful, even if it wouldn't fit me! That's the one I'd pick anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Oh wow, that dress looks amazing! Congrats for winning!

    It was a hard pick, cause there were so many interesting patterns I would love to try, but after a hard thought I'll go for this one D30-3012 Dresses circa 1938.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Congratulations Debi and I am not surprised you won, your outfit is divine and so deserved to win the competition.
    It's so hard to choose from all the gorgeous patterns from Evadress. I chose one of the overalls http://www.evadress.com/3322.html because I have nothing like it in my collection. What a great opportunity. Thank you very much.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Congratulations! Your winning outfit has to be one of the most incredible outfits I've ever seen. It is so beautiful and beautifully made. I think if I had to pick an Eva Dress pattern, it would have to be a dress from the 40s because then I (technically) wouldn't have to do any grading to get it to fit! I love this one: http://www.evadress.com/9906.html - It would challenge me to get back on speaking terms with gathering!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Congrats Debi! I've been in love with this outfit ever since you posted about it, you totally deserved to win with it! :-)

    Thanks for the lovely offer of a chance to be in to win as well! I must admit that I'd really like to try making up the pattern you used for your winning creation. It called to me as soon as you first posted about it, so I'd love to have the chance to win that! D30-5156 Katharine Hepburn Frock, circa 1933

    ReplyDelete
  82. Congratulations! You are such an amazing seamstress, it's hardly surprising you won!
    Your lovely 30s Evadress pieces has me longing for sewing 30s clothes. Although it's my favorite era, patterns from the 30s are impossible to find in Sweden, and customs makes purchases from outside EU very expensive.

    So I'll join the giveaway hoping for a chance at this gorgeous pattern: http://www.evadress.com/5809.html
    Keeping my fingers crossed! =)

  83. Huzzah for winning! Your dress is adorable!
    I had a HARD time choosing between E30-1965 and SE30-1684...They're both so very charming! In the end I think E30-1965 is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Wow-- you are a magnificant seamstress. This outfit is amazing and the pictures are fabulous! Thank you for doing this give away. If selected, I would like Eva Dress pattern 5156, the Helpburn Frock that you made. What an inspiration you are !

  85. WOw wonderful ... Congratulations! If chosen I would love to try the tea frock D30- 1011. Your work is wonderful and you look gorgeous in them! I am brand new to the world of vintage sewing and in looking for inspiration and certainly found it in your sewing! Thank you for being willing to share what you are doing!

  86. You have such a cute style! I'd go with E50-9662 - the 50's evening dress. It has such a fun neckline...

  87. Hi!

    My favorite of the bunch is E40-4517 Evening or Day Frock. To me this dress has the details of a true 1940s dress and that is my favorite era for clothing.

    I have never heard of this website so I am very glad I came to your blog via Sewaholic.net.

    Congratulations on the contest winning!

  88. Your outfit is fantastic, you look like you stepped out of a movie set.

    my choice is SE50-8433 Three-Piece Ensemble, circa 1951, which very much resembles the going-away suit my mother wore at her wedding. I would love to recreate it.

  89. So many stunning dresses to choose from.
    I love E30-6573 Ladies' Evening Gown in size 16.

  90. Your outfits are such an inspiration. And I love the backgrounds you choose in your photos. Congratulations on the Eva Dress Win. You deserve it.

    If I win, it will be tough. I'm torn between the 1927 Frock with Jabot, 1930 Tea Frock, 1936 Ensemble and 1938 Frocks.

    Good luck to all of us.

  98. Wow, your dress is amazing and I do love the settings of all your pictures. The Eva Dress Pattern selection is dreamy. I love the slips, lingerie, bathing suits but I think E40-4517 Evening or Day Frock, circa 1943 would work great for me. I love the neckline and sleeves.

  99. Congratulations!

    I'd love the French Twill Corset, circa 1886.

    Corsets are the love of my life (especially overbusts) ... I'll enjoy making it larger to fit me! I love that you're doing this

  100. Congratulations . Your outfit looked fantastic and the photograph was rather impressive too. The contest brought the work of talented seamstresses to the attention of an appreciative audience. I have an untried EvaDress pattern - and feel a bit inspired, after seeing the stylish results, to actually sew it up. I would also like to try the EvaDress E30-1283 Ladies' Evening Frock, circa 1937

  101. What a fantastic dress! I just found your blog through Tasia at Sewaholic, and am having a great time looking through it.

    The Eva Dress pattern I've had my eye on is D30-3872 Ladies' Morning Frock, circa 1932. It makes me want to spend a day by the sea (or in my case, the lake).

  105. I love D30-3288, Frocks, circa 1939. And congrats on your dress and win!

  106. Congrats! And this is a difficult decision. I would love to have all of these patterns!

    B30-7273 or D40-2924 would probably be my choices.

  107. Congrats on the win! That is SO neat! :D

    I really like D30-2636 - Frocks circa 1938. . . I also really like E40-5810 Set of Evening Accessories, circa 1943, but I suppose I would have to go for something a little less elegant and choose T40-3322 Ladies' Wide Leg Trousers and Overalls, circa 1940 - because I have wanted a set of vintage overalls for a long time. They fit so much better than modern ones and would be great for the farm work I do. :D I could also take and add a skirt to this pattern instead of trousers -- it would be cute!

    Thanks for hosting this!

  109. Wow, that's no surprise you won, it is gorgeous and fits you perfectly !

    If I won, I would choose the "1945 Bustle Skirts". I love that it looks very wearable (for me at least) on a daily basis.

    Keep up the good work. You are so inspiring :-)

    I love your winning creation, and Eva Dress patterns. In fact, it is hrd to chose. I seem to be in a pants mood, so I like SE30-1210, the tuxedo ensemble.

    I hope I win. :)
