Of course you heard that Oona is getting ready and sent out invitations for Promaballona. It sounds like fun, no? I never went to my prom/high school shing-dig or whatever they call it. I grew up in a strict, uptight Portuguese family that privledged the boys (three of them) in the family. I'm not bitter. I discovered punk music back in my final years of high school and I'm sure the prom organizers would have played ABBA (the music that the popular kids were listening to) and that would have made me just plain sad. Sew, it all worked out for the best. Anyway, I digress... and this is suppose to be about helping Oona celebrate her upcoming birthday.
I just RSVP'd for Promaballona and boy-oh-boy I have to get busy on my dress!
Have you started yours?
Can't find a pattern?
Well, this might be the pattern give-a-way for you!
There are three dress patterns up for grabs. Just tell me which one you would like, or if you want to be entered for all or two, or whatever I'll throw you name into the appropriate hat(s). And I will draw for each of these patterns on Sunday, July 22, 2012. Right after my morning coffee.
And here is the deal... if you are a follower of this blog, promise to give these patterns a good home, cherish it, use it, promise not to sell it, but you are welcome to share it. Then leave a message below and good luck!
P.S. I have no problem shipping internationally. Promise to send it off right away, but I can't guarantee that destinations on the other side of the world will make it in time of Promaballona. That is up to Canada Post.
