Inspired by Debi at My Happy Sewing Place (gushing post to follow tomorrow) I am participating in my first ever Sew Grateful Week. I won’t be doing all of her suggestions. For example I still consider myself a beginner so there is no way I am qualified to give a tutorial. I am however doing my first ever Giveaway so come and get ’em! I have five, yes five patterns to give away. I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone, so they range from a size 10 / 32 inch bust to an 18 / 40 inch bust. Some of the envelopes are a bit tatty but as far as I can tell all the pieces are there.
McCall’s 2075, Misses jumper and blouse in a size 10. 32 1/2 inch bust. Apparently it is from 1969. I did plan on making this in jewel coloured cordurouy, but it is way too small for me so makes more sense to pass it on to someone who won’t need to mess around so much with sizing.
Butterick 9941, a 1960’s shirtdress. Size 14, bust 34. Loads of potential here, I could see it made up in pale blue gingham, channeling the early Mad Men Betty, but I have about three other very similar patterns. This one needs a new home.
McCalll’s 7815; from 1965, Size 18, bust 38. I love the idea of this but with the best will in the world it will never fit me. I still plan on making something similar with the lace around the bottom though.
Then there is this:
To enter please leave me a comment saying which one / ones you would like if you win. I want to give all of these away so don’t hold back, and I’m happy to post anywhere in the world. I will pick winners at random this time next week – Monday 11th February.
