10,000 Fan Giveaway!

April 21, 2016

WeSewRetro just blasted past 10,000 likes on our public facebook page so let’s celebrate our growing community with a giveaway!

Before I run through the details of how to enter, let’s have a look at the ridiculous amount of prizes you can claim. Buckle up…

    Okay. Deep breath. I’m going to go with the top three on the list as my top three: the book about vintage fashion details would be a perfect addition to my collection of fashion books; I drool over Kim’s amazing beach pjs EVERY SINGLE TIME she posts, so to win a pair would be a dream come true; and I adore Mrs Depew and have a very healthy Pinterest board dedicated to her lovely patterns (She never lets me down– I love everything I’ve ever made using her patterns).

    Fingers (and toes and eyes…) crossed! Thanks for working so hard to put this amazing package together and thanks to all the generous donors and to everyone at WSR– what a wonderful, supportive community.

  157. So many pretty things, and I have to pick only three? I’d be delighted with any, but if I had to choose:

  158. What a fab competition. I love them all, but based on my current ideas I’d choose

    Thanks

  159. Oh my goodness, this is not an easy task! So much lovelyness!
    My top 3 would be:

    Your Choice of 10 Digital Patterns/eBooks from Mrs Depew Vintage
    Vintage Notions by Amy Barickman
    Vintage Details: A Fashion Sourcebook

  160. Oooooh!!!! So hard to choose! Lovely giveaway…

    My top three picks would be (in no particular order):
    1. Custom Made Beach Pajamas from Time Machine
    2. ‘Vintage Details: A Fashion Sourcebook’ from Laurence King Publishing
    3.Two 1961 Australian Home Journal Magazines from AllThePreciousThings

  161. Thank you so much for this opportunity and for curating such a great online resource!

    My picks:
    1-The ‘Vintage Notions’ book
    2-Vintage Goodies from Retro Rosie’s Vintage
    3-The ‘Vintage Details’ book

    1. Sorry my computer decided to just post that instead of letting me finish! 1) Custom made Beach Pajamas 2) 10 Digital Patterns from Mrs. Depew Vintage 3) The two 1961 Australian Home Journal Magazines!

  162. Amazing prizes. I’d be super happy to get any of them but top two would be

    1) Time Machine custom made Beach Pajamas
    2) Mrs Depew 10 free patterns/e books

  163. That’s an awesome list of prices and any of them would be wonderful to win!

    Sabine

  166. Loving the Dry Shampoo, the French Lace and the Oven Mitts, How fun! What a great idea, and kudos to whomever did the work to put this together!

  167. 1) Most definitely anything made by the amazing Kim Clark. Her work exemplifies what every vintage reproduction garment should aspire to: creative and considered combinations of fabrics and notions, careful and sculptural design alterations, bespoke consolation processes with the wearer, and above all an incredible articulation of knowledge of past patterns and designs. Her work is absolutely authentic! I can’t wait for Monday mornings to refresh Facebook and see what wonderful mischief she’s concocted!
    2) The amazing Mrs. Depew’s patterns. Her patterns page is an incredible online resource that does an interesting job of merging old and new: combining digital technologies with constructivist-modernist pattern notation systems. Her business (alongside several other great online pattern companies) play an incredibly vital role in developing awareness for authentic patterns, preserving their history, and making accessible these accessible to everyone at affordable prices.
    3) The Vintage Fashion Sourcebook – because every sewer, seamstress, dressmaker and taylor could brush up on their finishing, technique, and skill. A compendium of this kind of knowledge, a go-to manual for everything instead of sifting around the internet, would be an incredible asset to anyone’s library!

  168. Such a nice contest! Thank you for having it!
    If by chance I won, I would be over the moon with:
    -Your Choice of 10 Digital Patterns/eBooks from Mrs Depew Vintage
