The Giveaway pot luck post!

Hi everyone. Again, thanks for all the words and emails on my personal posts this past week. I'm glad you all are there to help a gal out from time to time :)

I want to say thanks by offering up a giveaway!
I'm going to offer up this button front pattern again. It was unclaimed a few months ago, and I think it's perfect for the PPP if you haven't picked a pattern yet.
This princess seamed patten is unprinted and in its factory folds. It's a 40 bust and from the early 1940s.


I'm going to run this giveaway until Monday at Noon (my time, I'm in CA).
To enter you don't have to follow my blog, but that would make me feel all special :)
Just add a comment to this post and I'll select a winner and announce it on Wed. Sept. 21st.

To close out the post I thought I'd put up some catalog pics. 1920s Lane Bryant. 
Enjoy and have a great weekend!

  11. You definitely are special. I don't read many blogs anymore, but yours is on the short list of blogs I check almost every day. I love the things you do and your style.
    And catalogue Sunday makes my day.

    I also love that pattern, I need a princess seams 40s pattern to have as a starting point for many, many dresses.

  16. I actually do follow your blog, and have enjoyed reading about your amazing ability to work with a variety of materials and make such lovely things. I think that the dress pattern you're giving away would look fabulous on me made up, and would inspire me to stick my toe into vintage sewing. Not something that I've yet been courageous enough to do.

    I really enjoy your blog, and look forward to more!
