November Giveaway!

Hi all! I am still alive and have sewn a few things- just need to make time to post about them! Max is eight months old now (wow) and I am teaching special education full time, so I don't have as much time to sew as I used to...

Leave a comment to enter the giveaway by Friday at midnight. The winner gets all four patterns and I will ship internationally if needed. All patterns are vintage and for a 34 bust. I have not checked if they are complete or not.

Simplicity 4260 is a button down shirtwaist dress with an interesting triangular neckline, or simple collar variation. Probably early 50s. Simplicity 2195 is for a monogrammed blouse with three sleeve lengths. Probably late 50s or early 60s.

Simplicity 1672 is a 1940s pattern for a shirtwaist dress. A button down bodice with a tie or button waist, with an option for scalloped sleeves and neckline. Butterick 3034 is a 60s wardrobe pattern that makes a skirt, blouse that can also become a dress and a casual, boxy jacket.
 Leave a comment by friday if you would like these cool patterns! 


  1. Oh, please could I be entered into the giveaway? I love the neck detail on the 1950's dress and the 1940's dress looks very interesting - a wrap-around skirt no less!

  2. Pretty dress patterns! I've been obsessed with shirtwaists lately - so timeless.

  3. Glad you are doing well! I can't believe Max is that big! Seems like yesterday you were pregnant :)

  4. Love these. Have never used a vintage pattern and just so happen to be a size 34 bust. Thanks for the giveaway xx
