Countdown to Easter Pattern Give-away!

Welcome to the Countdown to Easter Pattern Give-away, first up is one of my all time favourite patterns, Butterick 5891.  

It is a kAtheRine Tilton design, in combination sizes 8, 10, 12, 14, 16
Loose-fitting top has collar variations, side pockets (left side A, B), and shaped hemline.  A, B:  Raised neckline, mock neck/lower bands, front pleated peplum and narrow hem.  C, D:  Folded, single layer collar, and stitched hems.  Wrong side shows on hemlines and collar C, D.  
I still consider the top I made with this pattern one of my favourite pieces. So here is the deal, I will ship this new, factory folded pattern internationally but I have something to ask.
  • Promise to give it a good home where it will not be sold.  
  • Use it, make something fabulous, share the details. Share the pattern.  
  • Leave a message in the comment section that includes a way that I can contact you, if you win.  
  • Oh and do tell, are you making an Easter outfit for yourself or someone else?  
I will draw for this pattern on Friday, March 11, 2016.  

Good luck and happy sewing!

  2. Graca, how nice! Count me in for a chance at the giveaway. This pattern would add some panache to my wardrobe!

  3. I'd love a chance! I see at a snail's pace, so little likelihood I'd complete anything for Easter, but I have some fabric on the way from Emmaonesock that would be lively for this pattern. Contact by email were I go be so lucky as to win your generous offer, @

  4. Lovely. Not sure if I am going to make a Easter outfit this year. Thanks for the offer ... mad14kt (at) hotmail . com
