Pattern give-away Time!

The weather is suppose to be in the normal range this week. That means the weather will be cooling and thoughts will linger towards winter vacations in these parts.  

So in celebration of planning winter vacations there should be a pattern give-away, no?

Here's the first un-cut pattern.

Kwik Sew 2690:

It is a pattern for a Misses' princess line Swim Dress. It has a flared skirt with lining and attached panties. The leg openings and top edge are finished with elastic. View A has an empire waist with gathered front bodice and shoulder straps with elastic. View B has shaped empire waist with self fabric tie at centre front and wide shoulder straps.  

McCall's 3584:

Misses halter dresses have a lined bodice, tucks at bust and back zipper closure. This dress was super easy to put together, it is not the pattern that I used, this one is an un-cut pattern.

Vogue 8733:

I recently made Version B top. I blogged about it here. The pattern also includes shorts and semi-fitted pants. This pattern top is cut in size medium, the pants and shorts remain uncut.

To enter, just leave a message where you would like to go for your dream winter vacation. The draw is open to everyone including international. I will draw for the winner on Tuesday evening (October 18).

Just a few things I ask if you win the patterns. Do not sell them, instead cherish them, use them, and share them.

And happy sewing.


  1. I would love to go to the mountains for a winter vacation. :)

  2. Would you like the patterns too? I know they are not mountain appropriate. Well unless you wear a parka with them and use the swim suit for the mountain lodge hot tub?

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...
