Quadruple Vintage Pattern Giveaway!

I missed my 100th post so am going all out for #110.  Help me celebrate by entering to win one of four vintage sewing patterns.  This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada (sorry everyone else).

To enter leave a comment saying which pattern you'd like, before April 7th.  You don't need to follow my blog to enter.  If you do follow my blog or mention this giveaway on your blog you'll be entered twice (please leave a comment so I know).

Simplicity 1942, size 20.5 B39 wrap dress.
A 1940s wrap dress with gathered waist and shoulders, and triple darted 3/4 sleeves.  The pattern pieces are printed and include the pocket embroidery transfer shown in the lower right corner.

Simplicity 8140, sz 14 B36 "step-in" dress ©1969
This fun double breasted dress has a bias collar and midriff.  I'd love to see this dress sewn up!

Vogue 9029, sz 12 B34 
"Loose-fitting dress or tunic has shaped partially standing side buttoned collar and buttoned side front inset band."
This dress is missing the instructions, maybe a brave sewist is willing to take on the challenge?

Butterick 3709, 14-16-18 (37.5-41.5" finished bust)
Lastly, an 80s wrap blouse for 30% stretch knits, in factory folds.  This could work with a woven with a few adjustments.  I especially like the sleeveless version.

Thank you for reading, and thank you for entering!


  1. Congratulations on your over-centennial post! Great giveaway. I like the Simplicity 1942, because any style of wrap dress is a winner for me. But I'm loving the Butterick 3709. A wrap top definitely scores high marks in my book.

  2. @RiAnge Creations. Ltd.
    Thanks for commenting! Assuming no one else enters, you're welcome to both patterns.

  3. I like the Simplicity 8140. I'm surprised you didn't make this one. I've can already see it on me ...

  4. I love the styles of the first two, but I'm no good at grading. I'll just have to admire from afar!


I adore comments! Thanks for taking the time :)
