Pattern Give-away

kAtheRine Tilton's hooded jacket, Butterick 6253, is hands down my favourite make in recent months. I have to admit that my wearable muslin has been my go-to favourite item in my closet that I reach for on the weekends.  

I like it so much that I'm currently working on a second jacket. 

I hope to post pictures soon but I'm taking a break from the throbbing finger that collided with the sewing machine needle when I was sewing the zipper. But I digress...  

I have a brand spanking new (uncut and unopened) copy of Butterick 6253 looking for a good home. There is a catch though, 
  • Promise not to sell it and to give it a good home where it will be used and cherished and shared.  
  • Leave a comment about your favourite go-to weekend wear that you've made or what has been your favourite Tilton pattern that you've made.  
  • Leave a comment by Sunday morning (November 15)
  • Yup, that about it.   

It is open to blog followers in Canada and the U.S.  This multi-sized pattern includes XS (4-6), S (8-10) and M (12-14). Details from the pattern envelope:
Misses' Jacket:  Loose-fitting, unlined jacket has hood, wrong side shows, neck facing, seam detail, side pockets, sleeves, cuffs and exposed front zipper.  B:  Self-drawstring.  A, B:  Raw edge finish.  C:  stitched hem.  A, C:  Rolled seams on hood and purchased trim and drawstring.  B, C:  Pockets stitched in place.   

Good luck and happy (and safe) sewing!


  1. I have a Butterick pattern that I have traced FOUR times, it's a T shirt, but has an A line shape to it. Also I have a couple of pairs of jeans from a Vogue pattern that I use all the time. Cute coat pattern! I would love to add another Butterick pattern to my collection!

  2. Oh, I would like to win it I have sewn several sewaholic top patterns that I wear all the time. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I love my skirts, t-shirt and denim jacket for my weekend look ... Thanks for the give a way - FIESTA :)

  4. I have this pattern and some yummy maroon knit. Sorry about your finger Graca!

  5. I have to admit that usually I wouldn't go for this style of pattern. But after seeing your version, I would really like to have this pattern now. Thanks for the giveaway! I hope your finger gets better soon! I have had loads of sewing injuries over the years too - most to do with my sharp scissors and my seam ripper.

It's not the greatest looking photo. It's kind of a hot mess and could use a iron to get rid of those wrinkles in the front but...
