Pattern Pyramid Giveaway!

Woohoo it's a giveaway! I admit, I enter a lot of giveaways. I like stuff (sewing stuff). Imagine my excitement a few weeks ago when I finally won! And now it's your turn!

What's a Pattern Pyramid you ask? It's a great big pile of patterns, and the winner gets to choose one! The only catch is that you must add one of your own. Host a giveaway on your blog, and then send the whole package on its way. Fun, right?

I won this lovely stack of goodies when Shannon from Shani Loves was hosting. Shannon and I actually live in the same these patterns only traveled a few hours! Thank goodness it didn't take too long, because I was super excited to see the choices.

A jumpsuit? WANT! I don't care if it looks ridiculous on me.

History (and fashion) are doomed to repeat themselves. I guess these ladies go to the same hair stylist?

I have a RTW top exactly like this, which I love. Sadly, this pattern was already cut in a size that was not mine. After much debate, I chose...

This Cynthia Rowley pattern. It's a knit dress (of course) and a jacket. I kind of like the jacket, but I LOVE the dress. Must have more knit dresses! The reviews on PR warn that it can be a bit tricky, but I read the directions and think I can handle it. And what did I add to the pyramid?

I got this vintage pattern at a garage sale. A lady had a huge box stuffed full of patterns, and she begged me to take some of them. Sadly, they were almost all too large for me. I did take a few lovelies but realized later that this one has a size 40 bust. Not gonna work for me. But maybe it can work for someone else in the pyramid!

Want to win? To enter, you must have a blog where you can continue the pyramid/giveaway. This giveaway is open worldwide. For your entry, please comment on this post and answer the question: vintage patterns, fun or scary? I've never made one, and I'm kind of terrified for no reason. 

The giveaway will close at midnight Friday. I'll select a winner by random and announce who on Monday. Make sure that you leave some way for me to contact you, or check back Monday!


  1. I'd love to try my hand at this! =o)
    I think as long as you measure twice, cut once and make a muslin first, the vintage patterns aren't really too much trickier than a current pattern. ;o)

  2. Good choice :)
    I have loads of vintage patterns but as yet I haven't attempted to sew any of them as they are far too scary! That will all be changing this year though :) good luck to everyone.

  3. They are fun! I love using vintage patterns! It's like stepping back in time. They can be a little tricky though ;)

  4. I live some vintage patterns and have made a few up. It make sure I measure the pattern pieces before doing anything else.

  5. Ohh -- vintage is fun. I would love to try something new.


  6. I've never made on either but I'm itching too and I have a great 1950s to start with but would love to add to it with something from this brilliant collection.


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to comment below.
