GIVEAWAY: Eliza M’s Vintage Sewing

by Katherine

in Giveaway

First, a confession: I have not studied hard enough for my Psychology exam tonight. If past experience is anything to go by, this means I will spend today frantically doing things that are also not studying for my psychology exam…like drooling over the dress kits at Eliza M’s Vintage Style Fashion and Sewing Boutique.

And because Eliza M’s owner is a lovely lady (who probably would have studied for a psychology exam if she had one tonight), you guys get a chance to win one!

 

 

The prizes

Yes, prizes with an ‘s’ – there’s going to be two winners!

Prize 1: the dress kit of your choice (Eliza, Ruby, or Audrey) in a standard size

Eliza M dress kits are a beautifully packaged parcel of everything you need to make a stunning vintage inspired dress. Each kit contains sewing instructions, fabric already cut to size (woo!), thread,  zips and fastenings. You won’t need to wrangle pattern pieces or spend ages hunched over the kitchen table painstakingly cutting your fabric – you’ll have everything you need to sit down and sew!

Prize 2: a pattern of your choice (ElizaRuby, or Audrey) regraded to your personal measurements

Tweaking a pattern so it fits you perfectly can be a real pain. The winner of prize 2 will receive a custom paper pattern in their personal measurements. If the standard sizes of the dress kits don’t work for you, this prize will get you a paper pattern already sized to fit!

How to enter

Head over to Eliza M Vintage Sewing and pick your favorite style. Then pop back here and leave me a comment letting me know if you’re an Eliza, a Ruby or an Audrey and if you want prize 1 or prize 2 (or if you would be happy with either prize). You don’t need to publicize your size in the comments.

 

Two winners will be drawn at random on Sunday, March 25th. I’ll contact the winners by email to get details of your standard size for prize 1 or your personal measurements for prize 2.

 

International entrants always welcome

As always on WeSewRetro.com, so long as you’re somewhere on planet Earth, you’re eligible to win :D

 

Good luck! Now I’ve got to get back to my hectic schedule of alternating between frantically not studying and panicking…

Sabrina March 19, 2012 at 9:13 am

I LOVE the Audrey dress!!! I’ll even start working out so my arms will be up to the exposure. The custom pattern would be marvelous as I’ve never met a pattern that fit my apparently odd proportions :)

Reply

Jaime March 19, 2012 at 11:01 am

Audrey and either one would be amazing. I loathe cutting out pattern pieces but would also love to not have to grade between sizes.

Reply

Erin March 19, 2012 at 11:02 am

I think I’m digging the Audrey the most, though it’s hard to choose. I also think I’d fit in a standard size which would be awesome so I don’t have to mess with cutting fabric!

Reply

Laura Hulford March 19, 2012 at 11:16 am

wow! what an amazing giveaway! the eliza is so adorable, and the look is completely diffrent than anything else I already have. Either package would be wonderful.

Reply

Emma March 19, 2012 at 11:17 am

I’m an Audrey girl, all the way! The Audrey dress manages to be both modest and fun, which is the best kind of combination in my book. I would be delighted with either kit or pattern. :)

Reply

Cara March 19, 2012 at 11:18 am

Ooooh…I’m an Audrey! Both prizes would be good.
But pre cut fabric sounds devine…
And studying is so last season ;)

Reply

Erin March 19, 2012 at 11:25 am

I would love to win the Audrey in the custom size!

I’m an Audrey. I would love the kit! but the pattern to fit would be great too!

Reply

Christina March 19, 2012 at 11:47 am

I just love the sweetheart neckline & circle skirt of the Eliza–either in standard size or personalized fit. Could you pass on to Eliza that it would be immensely helpful to have a short description of the colors of fabric? I just don’t trust my monitor to give accurate colors.

Best wishes on the psychology test–hope you remember everything that you have studied. ;)

I’m so an Audrey. I’d prefer prize 2, but I’m not going to say no to prize 1. And I should be doing schoolwork as well.

Frauke March 19, 2012 at 1:41 pm

OH MY GOODNESS!
They are all great… I guess I would love ‘Eliza’ the most, though. This could very well be my first self-made retro-dress ever – so far I just follow the blog, swoon over some of the awesome things you fantastic women out there create and… do nothing!!!
So, yes, the Eliza please. Prize 1!

Reply

Shanna March 19, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I am Eliza and I would pee my pants if I won either prize :D

I am 100% an Audrey – it’s reminiscent of my custom made wedding dress that I absolutely love. I would also love either of the fantastic prizes!

Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

Reply

carson1131 March 19, 2012 at 5:03 pm

The Eliza dress is so lovely! I would say either prize would be awesome to get, but I hate cutting out patterns! I just want to skip right to the sewing so I would definitely want prize 1!

Kate March 19, 2012 at 6:51 pm

CosmicCaro March 19, 2012 at 10:49 pm

I LOVE the Audrey dress and would love to have the pattern pieces altered to my own measurement – I’m still having trouble doing a proper FBA…

Reply

Tina March 19, 2012 at 11:05 pm

I hate choosing! They’re all so lovely; however, I think I’d get the most wears out of Eliza. I’d be happy winning either prize package.

I want to be a Ruby, but have never felt comfortable with altering a wiggle dress to my non-standard measurements. I want the second prize!

Reply

CuriousRaven March 20, 2012 at 4:30 am

I’m loving the back on Audrey! And while I would love to not have to cut out fabric I’m not a standard size so option #2 it is. :)

Reply

Jane March 20, 2012 at 6:41 am

I love the Audrey in the cherry fabric!

Reply

Emily March 20, 2012 at 7:41 am

Why have I not known about your blog?! I’ve got a voile cocktail apron that would be perfect with the Audrey; either prize would be grand. Thank you. And I’ve got my eye on Grace when it becomes available …

Hope your psych exam went well!

I’d love to have the Audrey as a Made to Measure kit!

I think I prefer the Audrey, though I do like the other two. I would take either prize, but would probably do better with a made to measure kit. Thanks!

Reply

Monique March 20, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Perfect for the lazy or novice sewer. I would have to pick the Audrey, 4 piece patterns are all I can cope with. Ive just got a 40s pattern and as its has hardly its too hard to complete.

Reply

Kristen March 21, 2012 at 9:55 am

I love the Eliza! And I would have to pick prize #2, it’s such a great idea!

What a lovely give away. I think I’m more of a Katherine Hepburn that an Audrey but that dress is lovely. What a great idea

I love all the dresses! But if i have to decide then I’d love Audrey – and of course I’d be thrilled about prize 1, but prize 2 is great, too.

Reply

Stevie March 24, 2012 at 1:40 am

Oh, I would have to say Ruby and Prize 2. I am a very curvy girl so a custom pattern on a slim fitting dress would be, like, the best thing ever!

Reply

Inger March 24, 2012 at 2:06 am

Hmmm, I think I choose the Audrey, and either prize one or two. I’m not fussy, but I am lazy, so prize one would be my pick.
