The 'I'm back!' Giveaway.

 This weekend it's just me at home chilling out, shopping on line (don't we all), and sewing. Mostly sewing. I haven't had a huge chunk of time set aside just to sew in a while. I've spent it out having fun, learning to dance, and working. Don't get me wrong, I love it all, but my clothes are in need of some serious attention. Especially now that it's getting warmer, I need blouses, and I need to take in a few of the blouses I have. Also sew blouses for others. This having a life thing is getting in the way of sewing!

To energize my sewing momentum, and also the sewing momentum of others (I know you all have been slacking), and what I fell is, a lack of posting, I've decided to offer up an, "I'm back" giveaway.


This lovely late 40's peplum blouse! 


Take a look, the peplum is ruffled. Now, I know I've stated that peplums are to be avoided, especially if you have a big bum (which I do, seriously), but I do think a peplum can work on the right figure. Like with anything in styling, rules are made to be broken.


To enter the giveaway, either follow this blog, or my Facebook page (shameless plug!!!). Post you entry here. The deadline is Wednesday, April 11th at midnight, my time. I'll announce the winner on Friday the 13th, hehehehe. It's open to anyone all over the globe. Even to those worlds and dimensions beyond, though, you inter-dimentional folks will have to pay for post.

Okay all you sewing divas, have a great weekend (Easter, Passover or other), and I'll see you next week!
