This blog is three years old! I’m amazed.
I’ve just been looking back at my first posts, and it’s funny to see which clothes I never wore and which got worn to death. My first successes were a white Colette Jasmine and a Vogue 1247 skirt in navy batik. The failures were mainly flower print dresses – it seems to be a bad idea to make things I would never buy!
One flowered dress that I have worn, and continue to wear, is this one which I made from a vintage pattern. The pattern was a gift from a lovely customer called Felicity, who sent me her mother’s collection of sewing patterns. I ran a series of giveaways here, and the patterns went all over the world.
Felicity got in touch with me again recently to say she had found a few more patterns, and would I like them?
Well, would you?!
I thought we could do this Pattern Pyramid style, where the winner keeps the patterns she likes, and runs a giveaway for the remainder. So you do need an active blog to enter.
To enter, just leave a comment on this post saying which is your favourite decade to sew from. I’ll pick a winner by random selection on Wednesday 22 April.
Thank you so much for reading. I love being part of this amazing community!
