Holiday Giveaway 1


Here's the giveaway I promised you.

Today's giveaway features the Sewing Workshop pattern collection. Given the number of duplicates I had, there will be 2 winners this week! Each prize will consist of 2 patterns and a card of holiday buttons.

Prize A: Sandra Betzina Vest and Skirt, Spring Street Shirt, 2 Christmas tree buttons.

 

Prize B: Sandra Betzina Vest and Skirt, Era Jacket, 2 Christmas tree buttons.



More details on the patterns:
  • Sandra Betzina Vest and Skirt: the skirt is a favorite of mine, a faux wrap style that will not embarrass you by opening up. The pattern specifies knits, but I have successfully made it from a variety of wovens as well. The original design calls for a 35" length but is easy to adjust. I haven't made the vest but it looks like it might be a nice winter piece. Both copies appear to be uncut.
  • Spring Street Shirt: This pattern has been cut apart, probably for ease in tracing. The tissue appears to have all pieces and all sizes. I've also included the traced pieces that came with the pattern. Out of print. I'd recommend selecting the size by your high bust since the fit is a little loose by today's standards. The basic "bones" of the shirt look good though.
  • Era Jacket: This is a cute little jacket, copyright 2004. I have no idea why Linda pulled this one out of the collection, but it's also out of print. The fit is not oversized. Tissue appears to be uncut and in factory folds.
If you want to play, leave a comment on this post by 12/4/10 (next Saturday). Be sure to write "Sewing Giveaway 1" somewhere in your comment, and let me know if you have a preference for the Spring Street Shirt or the Era Jacket. The first person selected will get their choice if it's noted. The Sandra Betzina pattern and the buttons are in both prizes. One entry per person. I'll randomly draw the 2 winners on Sunday and post their names on the blog. 

I have 3 additional giveaways planned, so stay tuned. I'm hoping to do one a week through the month of December, subject to holiday activities of course. At this point, all prizes are sewing oriented, but I may add a non-sewing one depending on what I unearth in the Sewing Cave.

What a great sewing giveaway! I have the Era jacket but would love to try for The SB vest and skirt, along with the spring street shirt. Your banner is cool-from the Navajo auction?

Nan said...

I have been looking at that SB vest pattern for a long time. So either of the giveaways would be lovely

How does one manage to get so many duplicates?
I prefer Spring Street Shirt
Jacket. Very generous offer.

The Spring Street shirt reminds me of LaFred's Athena blouse. The Era jacket looks like it would be fun to make and wear.

I'm going to leave the win to others but just wanted to say if you've ever been unconfident about doing bound buttonholes, the instructions in the Sandra Betzina vest are the BEST! Of all the times I tried to get it right (welt pockets too) over the years this pattern was a major lightbulb moment. Perfect bound buttonholes/welts out of faux leather into a wool vest, bound to match. Worth it for that alone.
