The pattern giveaway you've been waiting for!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on the knitting post! Definitely gave me a lot to think about and a lot of new resources to check out!

I'm super duper excited to share with you what I'm working on and to announce this week's pattern giveaway.  As you may know, this week's theme over at the Sew Weekly is Alfred Hitchcock heroines.  ooohhh! So much fun!  And I'm currently in the process of making up the dress and jacket from McCall 9089.  I better hurry up because my post goes up on Friday! eep! I've got the jacket nearly complete and about half of the dress and I am LOVING it!

If you've been following my blog for the past month or so, you'll know that I've started a weekly pattern giveaway based on the patterns I sew up for the Sew Weekly challenges.  Part of my impetus for doing so is to help spur those that may want to get into vintage sewing OR to give a special goodie to those that are already vintage sewing fans!  You see, I obsessively systematically search out and acquire vintage patterns--often for very cheap.  The pattern below cost me only $6!!!  I also make copies of everything I sew up (trying to preserve the vintage patterns) and it feels bad to have these lovely patterns that I've already made sitting in my sewing room when I know others would love a chance to work with them.  Plus, I know I get so much from the sewing community and it's my chance to give a little back.

So there you have it....why I love weekly pattern giveaways!


So up for grabs is McCall 9089 from 1937 in a size 16 (Bust 34). All the pattern pieces are present and the envelope is in a fair vintage state (some staining but overall fine).

As with other pattern giveaways, this pattern giveaways will be open to readers everywhere and the only restriction is that you do not sell the pattern.  Keep it and love it for however you long you want and when you are done, pass it along to someone else! 

To enter:

Leave a comment on this post by noon GMT Sunday, 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).

I'll announce the winner on Monday and I'll ship anywhere in the world. Just a note that shipping can be a bit slow.

If you win a pattern, you can't win again for another six months. And again, the only caveat is that you don't sell the pattern. Keep the pattern for yourself as long as you want and when you are done, pass it on to someone else!

  48. okay, don't count my comment as an entry (I love the pattern, but 30s styles can be really hit or miss for me--especially ones with a higher neckline! :( So I'd rather someone who will look smashing in it win!), but I love that you are doing this. I think I've said it before, but I want to say it again--you are so generous! :)
