1950's Patio Dress Pattern Giveaway

This week's pattern giveaway is for Simplicity 4916 from the 1950's.


It is a size 14 or Bust 32.  The pattern cover is very brittle.  The pattern pieces are all in good vintage condition (some uncut) and the instructions are also a bit fragile but all in one piece.

How to Enter:
The pattern giveaway is open to readers everywhere! To enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post by midnight GMT Saturday for one entry,
  2. 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 Sunday and I'll ship anywhere in the world.  Just note that it sometimes takes awhile for packages to arrive for those outside the EU but I'll aim to mail out the patterns by the following Wednesday.  If you win a pattern, you can't win again for another six months (but you can enter if you've won one of my previous non-pattern giveaways as those don't count).  The only caveat is that you don't sell the pattern.  Keep it for as long as you want and when you are done, pass it on to someone else!

  1. I have a picture of myself in a similar skirt with a peasant style blouse when I was a little girl. I loved twirling around in that skirt.
    Great giveaway. I don't think I have a pattern like this in my stash.

  8. You know I live in the southwest and this reminds me a recent article in my hometown talking about southwest 50's style... and this pattern reminds me of what they called the squaw dress. Anyway I would love to have it so I can recreate the fashion I saw>

  9. I would have to do some serious grading, however, I love ric-rac enough that it would be worth it.

  15. WOW...did women really have waists that thin as in the illustration or did the illustrator exaggerate? Looks like a fun dress to make...
