Sew for Victory - A Little Giveaway

Hello dear readers, as I am a bit behind on my planned blogging of late (sometimes life just gets in the way) I thought I would just quickly pop in and treat you all to a little impromptu giveaway to fill the gap!

As I was sorting through my sewing patterns on the weekend, I realised that I have two copies of my Sew for Victory pattern (well three if you count the very delicate and torn original). One copied directly from the original pattern and one I made my own personal adjustments to. Which means that rather than hoard another copy I will never use again, I thought I should give it away!

Blackmore 5755
  • Hand copied onto medium weight brown paper
  • Seam allowances of 1.5cm added
  • Bust approx 38" 
  • Waist approx 30/32"
  • Ideal for a slightly stretch fabric, such as jersey or velvet.
I have added a few annotations to the pattern pieces where necessary, which hopefully should help anyone a little dubious about sewing something with minimal instructions. It is honestly a very simple pattern to make up, and any questions, well you know who to ask!

So what do you have to do to enter? 
1. Be a follower via one of the feed readers in the sidebar.
2. Leave me a comment below - It doesn't need to be anything fancy, simply a 'count me in' or 'Hello' will do!
3. Do the above before 12pm (UK BST) on Monday 29th April 2013

I will draw a winner using one of those random generators and post the winner's name here and if possible contact them directly. If I am not contacted by the winner before the 6th May 2013 I will draw a new winner.

I hope you like it, please don't be shy and have a go, I am more than happy to post worldwide so no one needs to be left out :)
