WooHoo! (And Pattern Give-away)

I have reached a blog milestone; 1 000 published posts! Actually, this one makes 1 001. First off, thank you to all of you who visit the blog and leave comments. It is really absolutely inspiring and motiving to be part of this online sewing community. I would like to thank you in words and with a pattern give-away.  

As you know, Marcy Tilton is one of my favourite designers over at Vogue patterns and I have Vogue 9035 in size combination E5 (includes sizes 14 to 22).  

Here's the drill:  

✄  Leave a message in the comment section telling how you follow this blog.
✄  Promise not to sell it.
✄ Provide a good home for this pattern where it will be cherished, used, shared and made into fabulous garments.  
✄  Leave a method that I can reach you if you win (email contact info)
✄  I promise to draw for the pattern on Friday, June 5th.   

Happy Sewing!  


  1. I follow your blog through my favorites . I'm a newbe Marcy Tilton follower. Loved her fashion show & booth at Pullaup Sewing Expo . Came back with quite a few goodies from her booth.
    Thanks for the giveaway & congrats on 1000 posts . Hope it doesn't take me 10 years to match that !

  2. I follow you from my blog. Congratulations on your blogging milestone, and thanks for the giveaway. My email address is kayleeacres2013(at)gmail(dot)com. :)

  3. Hi
    I have you under my favourites. Marcy and her sister Katherine both design some lovely artsy patterns. I have not bought this pattern though, it would be great to get it. Living in the lower mainland of BC I do drive down to the Puyallup Sewing Expo and see them. My email is paula.pinter@kpu.ca Thanks.

  4. Hi Graca - congratulations! I follow you via my blog roll - I look at it as my own (not so private) library of the blogs that I love to read! Great pattern - those trousers would suit my Lagenlook wardrobe!

  5. I follow you through Bloglovin'. I am also a fan of the TIlton sisters and I don't have this pattern! I went to Puyallup Sewing Expo and bought fabric in Marcy's booth and saw their fashion show.
