A Vintage Giveaway...

As I was writing my last post - half an hour ago - I was thinking how slack I am for not posting for 3 months... I am quite undisciplined at times, but am going to improve!

I want to do something for you, to say thanks for visiting... even though I have not been at all inspiring lately, so I will have a little giveaway...

Two prizes, randomly drawn from a hat, for followers who leave a comment after this post.

Both are vintage Vogue, unprinted patterns, size 18 (B-38 H-40).

Vogue 9874 - 1959

Vogue 5121 - 1960

These are two of the first vintage patterns I bought...but they are too big for me so I have never used them. Therefore, I hope they are complete. They do have instructions, and are in great condition.

Please comment regarding which one you would prefer, and include a contact email. I will draw the names from a hat at 9 pm Sunday 12th June, and will post worldwide :-)


  1. Awesome! Cool prize. :-) Hope I win!

  2. I'm terrible at blogging regularly too. Glad there are others out there. :)
    Love both of these patterns, but the neckline options on 5121 make it a winner for me!

  3. Haha, if you think you are bad at updating, I started a blog, but never actually wrote anything in it. I love sewing though, and vintage fashion is so much cooler than what is on the runways now.

  4. I am a bad blogger also, I would like to write more but I don't have intersting things to says =(

    Oh! And I enter to the give away!! =)

  5. Those patterns are very beautiful, I'd like 5121 best, but I love both.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I am so excited to be joing this contest. Recently i went into my basement and feel in love with my sewing machine thqat was a gift from my mother-in-law and now i am ready to go out and find patterns that are just as exciting as the ones you are giving away. I really hope i win the vounge pattern. MY fingers are crossed!

  7. Wow! This is a very generous act of you, I love the two patterns, so anyone is welcome to me. Thanks for being so generous!

  8. Those are both fantastic patterns! I'd be happy to win either one of them, but I think 5121 is my favorite. Keeping my fingers crossed!
