May Giveaway

Hello Readers,

It's a bit late coming but here is my May give away. I am giving away patterns each month all this year, in order to simplify my stash and pass on patterns I know I will not use. I usually have multiples of similar styles and sometimes I have moved on from a style completely. Neither pattern has been unfolded or used.

The first part of this month's package is an out of print but cute New Look dress 6750. It has princess seaming through the body and yoke/sleeve variations. 8-18

The second pattern is Butterick 5258, a lined trench coat/jacket with one piece bell shaped sleeves. The body of the coat flares out a bit too. No pockets but that could be fixed! The pattern includes a straight skirt and pants with a mock fly and back zipper. 8-14

Sorry, for some reason blogger won't flip the last photo.

Both patterns go the the one winner so if you are interested say so in the comments.

I am off to a little blog meet today in Sydney's Cabramatta or 'little Vietnam'. Coffee, company and lots of fabric shops. What could be better?



  1. Have a great blog meet today Val - wish I was there too. I have never been to 'little Vietnam' but next time I come down, may I should! The fabric shops sound good....

  2. It was great to meet you today!

    1. You too! Now I have to sew up the mini stash while the ideas are fresh in my mind!

  3. You lucky thing - pho and fabric in Cabramatta. I'm way overdue for another visit there.
    I'm interested in the patterns too!

    1. I am happy to meet up with you next time you are up if you want! p.s We totally stuffed ourselves with excellent food at a restaurant that offers some very surprising things!

  4. Have fun at your meet up... Sounds like lots of fun.. Love the patterns.

  5. Hi Val.
    It was awesome to finally meet you yesterday. Your jacket was fabulous.
    I hope you have a good day at Cabramatta.
    I hope you see you again.

  6. Hi Valerie,
    I would love to win these patterns. I am trying to build up my work wardrobe.
    Thanks a lot.
