Well Sew Grateful week is here, and my first post for the week is....
Now I've never done a giveaway before, so I asked on my Facebook page what I should giveaway - should it be a pattern or two, or some fabric... I had no idea.
This is one of the response I got from a lovely follower called Dahra:
"Use your talent. 'Sew Retro'.
A lot of people give away fabric and patterns and things... But how many people give away a one off piece sewn just for them? Doesn't have to be time consuming or a lot of work. But making something just for the winner... Then they'll feel extremely lucky and special"
So that's what I'm doing.
Yes you heard correctly - I'm going to sew an item of clothing for the winner! Specifically, this:
And don't worry, I will adjust the pattern to fit whatever size you are.
Now I have purchased this pattern specifically for this giveaway, and its on its way to me now from the good ol' US of A. Its a wrap skirt with a giant bow sash and I think its GORGEOUS!!!!
Now, the winner gets to pick the fabric I use. You can choose this one:
This is a quilting cotton so it is lovely and soft. The skirt will be made from the cherry fabric (who doesn't love cherries!) and the sash from the red fabric.
or this one:
This is a cotton twill so its a heavier fabric, but still very suitable for a skirt, and more than that IT HAS SHOES ON IT!!!! The shoe fabric will be the skirt, and the sash will be in pink.
I love them both so will make the skirt for myself in the other fabric.
There is one condition though - I would really REALLY love it if the winner could send me a couple of photos of them wearing the skirt so I can post them on my blog and share them with everyone else that didn't win. You get an opportunity to make everyone jealous!!!
So I can hear you all yelling HOW DO I ENTER, STOP GOING ON AND JUST TELL ME!!!!!
