This week's theme over at the Sew Weekly is UFO's. I decided to tackle one my oldest UFO's, a super cute halter top from an early 50's Simplicity pattern:
My post has just gone up over at the Sew Weekly--check it out! I'll also post some extra pictures and more detailed information here this week as well!
But that's not all I am working on this week. I am also starting a super fabulous dress for my sister from a 1940 McCall pattern (how very unlike me...giggle). And this pattern is also this week's giveaway (and you are going to LOVE it!!).
And this pattern is also featured in the Singer Style Digest from 1940 (these are really neat small booklets put out by Singer showing some of the season's patterns from all companies all sewn up). Here's what it looks like in the 1940 digest:
I'm making my sister the short-sleeve version from an amazing teal cotton/wool blend. This will definitely not be a one-week turnaround as you'll see the pattern size is quite small (B30) and I need to do quite a bit of regrading. But I've made a copy for myself and have made one for my sister with all the new regrading. I hope to post a bit on how I regraded this pattern in case the winner wants to do some regrading as well!
As with other giveaways, this pattern giveaways will be open to readers everywhere. To enter:
- Leave a comment on this post by noon GMT Sunday (this is a bit different from most weeks), please also leave a way for me to contact you,
- If you are technologically savvy and connected then post about the giveaway on 1. your blog, 2. twitter or 3. facebook for an additional entry for each method (so you can have a total of up to four entries...be sure to leave a comment and let me know if you've done any of these extra things).
YAY! Love this one and can't wait to see it made up in various ways!!
