May Give Away Day

The girls over at Sew Mama Sew! have organized another give away day! It sounds like fun, so I'm joining in. I debated making something for the give away, then decided against it. I have some vintage patterns up for grabs instead. I have two patterns that I'm giving away separately. The first one is Simplicity 4298.

I'm sorry I don't know the date of the pattern. It is size 14, with a 34 inch bust. This is a cut pattern, but all the pieces are accounted for!  The second pattern is Simplicity 4417, size 2.

These aren't pics of the actual patterns, but pics I found on the web. The envelops are in similar condition though.
To enter my give away, just leave me a comment, telling me your favorite sewing project, and which one,(or both)of the patterns you are interested in! (it would make me very happy if you became a follower too!) Winners will be chosen in a random draw on May 23, and winners will be posted here. I will ship internationally! Good luck everyone, and I look forward to hearing about your favorite projects!

  6. I love that dress, it would be a winner for summer evenings with the alpaca cardigan I am knitting right now :) My favorit sewing project is a handsewn cover made of heagons for a little chair. It's made of reds and greens and makes me really happy.

  10. I've been on a quilting kick lately, it's a great excuse to hoard more and more new fabrics, but the end results are pretty awesome too! I just finished a lap quilt for myself, and I love cozying underneath it while watching tv.

    Thanks for the giveaway, I'd love the Simplicity 4298 pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Love these patterns! The dresses are my favorite :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would love the 4298 pattern and although I love making quilts a lot, due to the lack of sewing time I mostly make little projects like skirts or bags...

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love makking clothes for my daughter, so you can guess which pattern I would choose if I won! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would be thrilled to win either one of these! I'm still worn out from our moving halfway across the country. We have only been in our new home for less than a week.

    My tip would be to make sure to use plenty of bubble wrap and mark boxes well even if you think you will be able to remember that you tucked certain things in with something else.

    Blessings on your move and I hope you will love your new home!

  15. Both patterns are sensational! My favourite sewing project is usually the one I've just finished. But I've made up couple of dresses from re-issued "vintage" patterns, and recently old maternity patterns of my mother's, that are my faves.

    ReplyDelete
  16. So sorry I happened to add the moving bit to the wrong comment. That's what happens when I have more than one window open.

  17. Ooh . . . I'm loving the kids clothes pattern!

    How do I pin down a fave sewing project? I love to try so many different things. Stuffies are a pain sometimes, but they are so ultra satisfying when they are done (especially when the special little person who receives them gives em a big ole hug!)

  21. So far my favourite sewing project is my English paper pieced hexagon quilt. It's far from being a complete quilt top, but very relaxing to cut out some scraps and stitch them up!

  22. I would love the dress pattern, 4298! I just recently have gotten into sewing, but my favorite project so far would be a messenger bag that I take with me everywhere :D

  26. Any time I am working on a quilt--that is my favorite sewing project! I'd love to have that first dress pattern; I love the style from that era. And size 14? Well, sizes have morphed over the years, and I am very curious as to what size that would be in today's terms!

    ReplyDelete

  69. My Favorite sewing project was my first blouse, because it was the first outfit I make that wearable (usually the project finished so bad that I can't wear it).
    I choose the baby pattern, my kid is 2 years old and I think she will look adorable with that jumper.
    And I follow your blog.
    Thanks for this great giveaway!

  70. That dress looks just like what my grandmother wore in the 50's - she made all her own clothes, so I'd bet that she might have made it from that pattern. I'd love to be able to make my own and show up at her house to surprise her!

    My favorite sewing project was the little quilt I mostly made when I was 13 - my grandmother helped me finish it, and I still treasure it!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I would love the Simplicity 4298 pattern. I've been wanting to make an Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany's) kind of dress.

  86. I love vintage sewing patterns and have just started collecting them. Much as I love the first pattern, I doubt I'd fit it, so I'm going to throw my hat into the ring for the second one, as I love making kids' clothes with a vintage flair!

  88. My son needs new dungarees so the 2nd pattern would be perfect! I love vintage patterns - its so lovely to make clothes that aren't "trendy" and know that you are wearing a one off.

    I've followed you on google reader.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  89. That dress pattern is divine. Of course, I'm currently pregnant and will probably breastfeed for the next year or so and won't be able to wear such a beautiful dress, but I love it anyway. So elegant! My favourite sewing project is anything that is useful. I can't put that much time and energy into something that I haven't got a specific purpose for. I guess that why I haven't yet done any quilting, though I would really like to!

    ReplyDelete
  90. My favorite project is a reversible sundress for my daughter. Love those patterns!
