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.


The Eva Dress by Tessuti

This is my first project using Tessuti patterns and I'm even more impressed with how it turned out than I was when the patterns arrived...
