It’s giveaway time…huzzah! And if you’re one of those people who never wins anything (hello…come sit over here by me in the bitter corner), you’re going to love this one because there will be not one, not two, but three lucky winners.
Regular readers of our vintage sewing blog will no doubt recognize the name Mrs Depew Vintage. Run by the lovely Anna (who happens to be my go-to source for vintage lingerie questions), Mrs Depew Vintage is on etsy and craftsy.
Up for grabs this time is the PDF pattern download of your choice from Anna’s three latest creations.
Depew1001: 1950s inspired one piece bathing suit pattern
The classic 1950s look of this one piece bathing suit was inspired by none other than everybody’s sweetheart Marilyn Monroe. Strapless or with a collar style halter strap, this glamorous swimsuit has optional side boning for support.
The style afford generous coverage of your patooty and upper thighs which, according to this house’s resident Women-In-Swimsuits expert (also known as my husband), is “hot”. Fits 33″ to a 42″ bust.
Depew 1018: 1950s style beach bustier pattern
Halter neck or strapless, this summer top is the perfect complement to shorts or pedal pushers. Fits 32″ to 38″ bust.
Depew 1019: Ladies french beret pattern
A simple but stunning sew. This easy pattern for a 1930s french beret features two sets of tiny pin tucks at a jaunty angle. The beret band is cut on the bias so one size should fit all (…humans, that is. Apologies to any moose, giant squid, or hammerhead sharks that may be reading).
To enter the giveaway, select which of the three patterns you would love to try and let me know in the comments which one and why.
If you want to ride roughshod over the odds, you can pimp this giveaway post on the social network of your choice or your own blog for one additional entry. If you pimp it, leave me a link in the comments so I can see (no cheating! ;))
Three winners will be selected at random on Sunday, May 6th to receive whichever pattern they chose in their comment.
