Pattern Give-away Time!

I have some unused patterns, in excellent condition, and perfect fall basic pieces. I'm going to paraphrase Debi here from her pattern give-away because I feel the same way.

All I ask is that you do not sell them. Instead use them, cherish them, give them a good home, and when you out grow them, share them.

Are you still interested? Okay. Well, this give-away is open to everyone. I'll mail them out anywhere, all you have to do is leave a comment about what you are sewing right now. I'll draw for these on the evening of Friday, September 8th.

There are four patterns in this give-away that cover all the basic bases: shirts, skirts, pants, jackets, and turtleneck tops.

  1. I am making a vintage pattern for my mom. It's a tie neck sleeveless blouse. It's been on hold for a few weeks because we moved. I gotta get it finished bc it's already September!

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
