New Pattern Purchases (& Pattern Giveaway)
Posted on July 20, 2013
I appear to have somewhat of a pattern buying problem at the moment.
I’ve recent added these beauties to my collection:
And I have also added these two. Tim thinks they’re horrible but I’ll be the one laughing when I’m all snuggled up in winter in a lovely flannel gown!
Can you give the below 2 patterns a good home?
The first is this Simplicity 6197 Bust 44. It was advertised on wrongly on ebay as B34 so I don’t think I’ll use as it’s it’s quite far off my measurements. More details can be found here.
I haven’t checked the pieces but in the original listing it said they were all there.
The second is this repro Vintage Vouge V1072 40s suit pattern. It’s in size DD (12-14-16-18)
It’s brand new and uncut. More details on the pattern and sizing can be found here. As far as I am aware this pattern is now out of print.
When I first started to get into vintage clothes I was very much in love with 40s designs but I’m more partial to late 50s -60s rather than earlier now so I don’t see myself making this up at any point.
If you’d like either of these patterns please comment below (with Simplicity and/or Vogue in the body of the text) by 28th July, follow my blog and I’ll announce the new owners on here on 31st.
I’ll be using a random number generator to pick the winner/s.
