Happy Friday! First and foremost, let me say thanks for the encouragement on my tips on getting over a crafting slump. I know I’ve personally kept these tips in mind all week, and I’m pleased to say I just finished up the dress I mentioned in the post (photos soon once it warms back up, we’re going through a chilly spell). And also many many thanks on all the wonderful comments about my new pullover! (In fact, it’s so chilly I’m wearing it today!)
Here’s the giveaway I promised last week and then forgot about (whoops, lol). Two vintage Simplicity sewing patterns that I think would be perfect for summer. The blouse pattern should look familiar as the one I mentioned I started last fall and tried to pick back up, but I need a break from it. When I ordered the pattern originally I accidentally bought the wrong size, so I thought it would be perfect to do a combo giveaway with another great pattern.
Simplicity 2579 dress – Bust 38, waist 30
Simplicity 4608 blouse – Bust 40, waist 34
The envelope on the blouse pattern is very rough, completely open on two sides and the dress envelope is in much better condition, though still “used” of course. Both are printed patterns, and have all pieces and instructions. Neither are dated, but the Vintage Patterns Wiki puts the dress at 1958 and the blouse is probably from the 1940s.
Aren’t they both great patterns?? If you win, please do share if you sew either of these up!
