Vintage Sewing

Spring pattern giveaway

March 17, 2010

In celebration of winning my very first blog giveaway and to revel in the fact that spring is ALMOST here, I am doing my very first pattern giveaway!!!

I’m giving away two patterns to two different people.  Both of the patterns are complete and in good vintage condition. 

The first pattern is Style #2198 in a bust 34.

Misses’ housecoat in two lengths:  The housecoat has front button closing, collar, pockets concealed in side front seams and long set-in sleeves.  View A & B have “stand-up” collar.  View A has embroidered braid trim.  View C & D have Peter-Pan collar.  View A & C are ankle length.  View B & D are regular-length.

The short version would make a lovely spring housecoat (or lightweight coat for that matter!)  And then you can save the pattern and make the longer version for the fall/winter.

The 2nd pattern is Butterick #4997 from 1968 in bust 38:

Misses’ one-piece dress:  Full A-line skirt attached to semi-fitted bodice above waistline.  Button and tab trim.  Short sleeves or sleeveless.  Purchased scarf.

So, how do you enter?  Simple–just write a comment on the pattern giveaway post and tell me which pattern you want and what fabric you would make it with.  You can enter for both patterns BUT will need to leave two separate comments (one for each).

I will choose two winners randomly on Sunday the 21st of March–the first day of spring.

Oh, and if you win, you agree to sew the pattern within 1 year (by next spring 2011) and give me a link to your blog post to share your lovely garment (or if you don’t have a blog to send me a photo).

Also leave a comment if you have already made up one of these patterns in the past.

YAY!  Can’t wait to see these two beautiful patterns made into lovely spring garments!
