National Random Acts of Kindness Day!

Perfect day for a pattern give-away, don't you think? So in hono[u]r of National Random Acts of Kindness day, I thought I would give-away McCall's 6993 from their Archive Collection. This pattern is from circa 1933.

It is an unopened and uncut multi-sized pattern. It includes sizes 14 to 22. Here's the deal: promise not to sell it rather use it, share it and make fabulously retro skirts with it. That's it. 

Oh wait! There is more. Just do something nice for someone else today. You know, a random act of kindness. I will ship internationally, if you agree to the requests above, leave a message below. I will draw for the pattern on Saturday, February 21st. 

Happy Sewing!
