Blogtoberfest Giveaway!

As promised, I'm having a giveaway today, in celebration of Blogtoberfest. Today, you have a choice, and I hope I have something everyone would be interested in!

The giveaway is for a length of fabric and a pattern, your choice.

There are two options for fabrics, both a bit summery, but if you're anything like me, you like to sit on your fabric for a while before sewing it up. :) The first is 1 7/8 yards of a pale lavender linen blend. The photo doesn't really do it justice, since you can't see the color very well, but it's very pretty. It would make a great skirt. The second fabric is 1 1/4 yards of gray, white, and fushia striped seersucker. It would make an adorable top. Maybe the Sorbetto?


I have a couple of patterns up for grabs. The first is Simplicity 2996, a 1959 pattern for pants in four lengths. The pants have waistline darts front and back and side zipper closing. there's a pocket int he right side seam that's optional. It fits waist 25 and hip 34.

The second pattern is one that I posted for a giveaway a while ago but was never claimed. Oh, sad, beautiful vintage Vogue pattern! It's Vogue S-4067 from 1950, and you have to admit, it's just stunning. It's drafted for a 32" bust and 35" hip.

Pattern number three is Simplicity 5134, a shirt dress pattern from 1963. It's for a 33 bust.

If your taste runs a little more to the modern patterns or you prefer multi-size patterns (I do, just because my body spans about 4 sizes), I have something for you as well. Vogue 8787, in sizes 6-14.

The rules:
 - Leave a comment below telling me which fabric and which pattern you would like.
 - You must be a follower of my blog.
 - You have to have a way I can contact you (email, or a link to a blog profile with your email in it).
 - If you win, please don't sell the pattern. If you decide at some point that you no longer want it, pass on the sewing love to someone else in a giveaway or gift. :)
 - The giveaway will be open until noon (Central Time), Tuesday, October 30, and I will announce the winner on Halloween.


  1. I would love to win the seersucker fabric!!! I have so many patterns right now that i'll restrain myself and let someone else have a go at the patterns, but my fabric stash is low! I'm following on! Happy blogtober!

  2. oh i love the shirtdress pattern! a girl can never have too many patterns :) thanks for this lovely giveaway! (i follow you through bloglovin)

  3. I like the linen blend fabric and the 8787 pattern. It looks like dresses my grown girls would wear. Thanks for the chance. I had fun meeting new bloggers with this fest.

  4. I missed the deadline, but since the winner has not been announced yet, I am going to comment anyway. Lavender linen and Vintage Vogue - it really doesn't get much better than that!
