How graceful, beautiful and fragile. My love and ultimate obsession with this pattern begin when Karen of Did You Make That posted the novel idea of the Pattern Pyramid. She had a bunch of patterns she got and hosted a giveaway where she split them into several bundles and sent them onto the winners. The winners would pick one pattern and then host their own giveaway. So on and so on until all the patterns had been won and welcomed into loving homes.
Among the original patterns was Economy Design 157--so unlike all the other patterns. And so it began. I commented on the original Pattern Pyramid giveaway post over at Karen's blog:
I missed the deadline for the giveaway over at Sew Brunswick who won the original lot including the Economy Design 157 pattern from Karen. Then the Pattern Pyramid made it's way over to the lovely Seersucker Sally and she was deciding between keeping the New Look pattern and the Economy Design pattern and....phew! She chose the New Look pattern. Here's my comment on her giveaway:
Then the patterns traveled to Tiffany in Seattle. I missed her giveaway which was won by Kat in Wellington, New Zealand who blogs over at Modern Vintage Cupcakes. Kat decided to keep the Economy Design pattern (sob!) but I entered the giveaway anyway.....
I get the patterns in the mail and what do I find????? The Economy Design pattern!! Turns out that at the last minute Kat opted to keep the Simplicity 3661 pattern from 1951 instead of the Economy Design pattern! I was OVER THE MOON! To say I love this pattern would be an understatement...I have literally tracked it around the world and can't believe that after the roller coaster Pattern Pyramid ride that it now calls My Happy Sewing Place home....
Don't you just love fairy tale endings? Now's your chance. Up for grabs in this 6th round of the Pattern Pyramid are the original patterns:
The Sewaholic Alma Blouse was added in Round 4 by the lovely Tiffany:
And in celebration, I am adding 3 more patterns to the Pattern Pyramid Giveaway (I anticipate this giveaway will be going strong for at least another year!!!). First up is this adorable 1974 McCall's pattern for summer tops (which, um, I will never sew for the Scottish climate!):
This adorable pinafore/jumper pattern from 1968:
And the best of all....This stunning 1952 Vogue pattern:
