June Give Away


Happy Birthday and blogiversary to me!

* Edit:  I wrote this post in a mad hurry before going to the gym. I should have said Birthday and Blogiversary Month. My birthday was at the beginning of the month..

Anyway, four years ago I started the blog as a birthday present to me and it is still something I enjoy. Thank you all for being such a great community.

In celebration I am giving away something special.

It is Drape Drape, the pattern book that started the craze for all things drapey-Japanese. I bought it when it first came out so sorry guys, it is in Japanese.

The patterns are included in the back, to be traced off and each garment has instruction diagrams. Looking at this book is an inspiration. I've got it in English so if the winner wants a photo of garment instructions they can email me.









I will post it anywhere, so if you want it say so in the comments within the next five days.

  1. Happy birthday and blogiversary to you! It's my birthday too in two days. But I've been buying myself fabric ''for my birthday' for the past few weeks anyway - I like to milk my birthday as much as possible. I figure I can get a good three weeks out of it ;-). I won't put my hand up for this book, even though I do love Japanese pattern books. I have one of them already, although I'm not sure it's this one. I need to make something in my first one before I add to my collection! What a lovely idea for a giveaway though!

  3. Happy Birthday to you, Val, and congrats on four successful blog years. This is a lovely giveaway, although I am a bit scared of those patterns. I'll let it go to someone more confident than moi! xx

  4. Happy Birthday + Blogiversary! I've enjoyed reading about your sewing adventures over the last couple of years or so (especially those about pants fitting). I'd love the opportunity to challenge my very basic Japanese and sewing at the same time. Please enter me in the giveaway--thank you!

  7. Happy Celebrations!!! I don't need to be entered as I have the book as well, but I will encourage anyone keen to try the patterns - they're easier & more flattering than they may look at first glance ;)
