Spring has definitely sprung so we’re having a giveaway to help you out with your springtime attire…huzzah! regulars are already familiar with the lovely Katrina of Edelweiss Patterns. She makes gorgeous outfits and then photographs them in amazing locations. When I think of Edelweiss Patterns, I think of delicate, feminine, vintage designs (and of course the Sound of Music….all together now: “the hiiiillllls are allllllliveeeeee…”)


Katrina has graciously agreed to provide the winner of this week’s giveaway with the Edelweiss Pattern of your choice.


How to Enter:

Head over to Edelweiss Patterns to browse the pattern selection. Pop back here and let me know in the comments which pattern you love most and why.

The winner will be chosen at random on Sunday, April 22nd. Shortly thereafter, the pattern you chose in the comments will be winging its way to you.

As always on, this giveaway is open to all, wherever you live :)


Good luck!

Loving Liesl’s dancing pattern. The only dress of them I would personally wear.

I really like Maria’s gazebo dress. I love that it is floaty and very feminine as well as being flattering To the figure, without revealing much


Erin April 16, 2012 at 6:19 am

The gazebo dress has such a inspirational feel to it, it’s the only one for me.


Miranda B. April 16, 2012 at 7:42 am

Love the gazebo dress. Crossing my fingers on this giveaway. I just finished using Katrina’s suggestions for the Butterick Retro Walkaway dress and it turned out amazing (and then saw in the April issue of People [I think] that 50′s was in, which made me uber-excited about the dress!). Hopefully will get around to posting pics of the dress on here and Craftsy.

Baroness Schraeder’s Ball Gown! She couldn’t have Capt. von Trapp, but she definitely had the best wardrobe!


Alicia April 16, 2012 at 11:53 am

I LOVE Liesel’s dancing dress! So pretty.


Miss Crayola Creepy April 16, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Liesl’s Dancing Dress! Would love to be her for Halloween!


Verena April 16, 2012 at 2:47 pm

I really love Maria’s Gazebo Dress, it’s just so elegant and femine, gorgeous. :)


christyq April 16, 2012 at 8:42 pm

Hannah Grace April 16, 2012 at 8:43 pm

I’ve always loved Liesl’s dancing dress. It’s so pretty and feminine! Of course I would want it in ladies’ sizes. :)


Elaine H. April 16, 2012 at 8:49 pm

I love the Liesl dress. It is so feminine and flirty! I would love to make it for myself!


Jennifer Faul April 16, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I would just love to have the Liesl’s dancing dress pattern in the little girl size-both of my daughters adore The Sound of Music and have requested This dress for themselves. I have the Baroness ball gown pattern to make up in red silk douppioni…..:)


Anna April 16, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Leisel’s dancing dress. How can anyone not like it? It jut twirls and spins and looks lovely! : )


Brielle April 16, 2012 at 9:35 pm

Maria’s gazebo dress!! However, I think all of her patterns are stunning.
The Baroness’s Gown is also one of my favorites…it would be so pretty made up in a rich red for the holiday season.


jbsews April 17, 2012 at 12:02 am

Oh what a wonderful giveaway :-) . It is so hard to pick! I think i will pick Maria’s dress. I have been wanting something with flutter sleeves. It was hard to decide that….the Baroness dress is so amazing.


sorbetsurprise April 17, 2012 at 4:21 am

I love Liesl’s dress most as I always wanted to be her, dancing around the gazebo!


Joyce April 17, 2012 at 11:53 am

Liesl’s Dancing Dress


Sarah Grace April 17, 2012 at 11:48 pm

I have enjoyed watching The Sound of Music since I was a child. The clothing is simply delightful. I love all of Katrina’s patterns & I follow her wonderful & informative blog. It would be very hard to choose between Maria’s Gazebo Dress & Liesl’s Dancing Dress, but I suppose I would pick Maria’s Gazebo Dress. I hope very much that I win, as I have longed to get one of her patterns, but never had the extra funds.

Barbara April 18, 2012 at 1:48 am

Oh, don’t ask me to choose between Liesl’s dress and Maria’s dress, please?! Okay, Leisl’s little girl’s dress for my girlie granddaughter.


Kerry April 18, 2012 at 7:01 am

Liesl’s dancing dress, please! :)


Trudy Callan April 18, 2012 at 7:47 am

I would love to win Liesel’s Dancing dress for girls because I already have the one for adults so my daughters and I could match if we wanted. My girls also love to wear beautiful dresses; so I know they would be thrilled. sewingwithtrudy at yahoo dot com


Katty April 18, 2012 at 10:31 am

I really love the Maria’s gazebo dress; just beautiful. Have a wonderful day.

Emily April 19, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Love the leisel dress it makes me want to sing


Gracelyn April 19, 2012 at 8:20 pm

I would like to win Leisel’s dress pattern, here are my reasons

“I am 16 going on 17,” literally, I think Leisel’s dress is beautiful and feminine, with such flowing fabric, as well as a graceful and elegant look all wrapped up into such a lovely pattern. I enjoy watching the Sound of Music, and seeing all the beautiful costumes and of course hearing the beautiful music!

Thank you so much for hosting the giveaway, and I wish everyone could win one of Edelweiss’s Patterns!


joy April 20, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Liesl’s dress! I love that scene!


JD April 20, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Liesl’s dress ROCKS!… I mean, it’s absolutely lovely… I’m about to cry, so I’m signing off now.


Pattie April 20, 2012 at 3:57 pm

“Somewhere in my youth or childhood” I absolutely fell in love with Maria’s Gazebo Dress! The sleeves are so flowy, the whole dress is ever so billowy and elegant.


Elsa April 21, 2012 at 2:09 am

Definitely Liesl’s Dancing Dress. It’s really lovely.


Elizabeth April 21, 2012 at 9:48 am

I have literally watched The Sound of Music once for every year of my life…it could be even more but I have lost count exactly. Even as a child I loved Maria’s Gazebo Dress. I would love to be able to recreate it!


The Crafty Sage April 21, 2012 at 10:35 am

I would have to say the children’s Liesl dress. That could be worn for so many occasions!
