I was very lucky to win the Wellington Pattern Pyramid from Laura over at Make it Yourself Mom’s Diary. Laura also gave me a very cute card and some lovely stretch cotton floral print fabric.
This Pattern Pyramid originated from the Wellington Blogger’s Meetup, in New Zealand, where they met up, exchanged sewing supplies and had many patterns left, with no takers. So, Miss Joie De Vivre at A Charm of Magpies, began this Pyramid. It then made its way to Anne from Pretty Grievances. Next up, the lucky winner was Laurie and Kerrielee from Sew Exhausted who then passed it over to my predecessor, Laura. Now, it’s my turn to pass it along to all of you!
These are the 3 patterns I am taking out: (I was quite thrilled that so many patterns were my size!).
There was a sailor style /diaper closure culottes pattern that is so fantastic!! Version C has an inverted pleat at the sides. I can’t wait to make these! And, I’m also helping myself to a yoga collection and a pretty yet simple dress.
And, these are the patterns I will be putting back:
I have included the Vogue coat that I received in a giveaway from Mari at Disparate Disciplines which caused some definite excitement in this post. But, the pattern is several sizes too big for me, and I am finding Vogue patterns difficult enough without the added stress of having to grade it down. So, instead I thought I’d share it with those who can use it! I also included a stylish Vogue skirt pattern with a yoke and pockets, but yet again, it is too large for me. And, a McCalls blouse pattern that includes 8 different styles.
And, here are two Extra Special Bonus patterns that I will also be adding in: Very cute 1970s wrap skirts with pockets. The instructions are in French only and I have labelled them in case the winner does not read french.
Here are the patterns sorted by size:
The fine print:
- Anyone, anywhere can enter the giveaway by posting a comment below by Friday June 7, 2013.
- You must have an active blog.
- A winner will be randomly selected and contacted. I will then post (mail) the pyramid to you. Kitty is sharpening his claws in preparation for the next draw officiating ceremony!!
- The winner will then select a pattern(s) to keep and add a pattern(s) of their own back into the Pyramid. (Adding a pattern is optional, if you add a pattern back in, the pyramid keeps going longer, but it is not compulsory.) The winner will then host their own giveaway on their blog and the cycle continues…
Good Luck to Everybody! And, Happy Sewing.
