The idea of the pattern pyramid (started by the lovely Karen) is to pass a bunch of sewing patterns around the world! The rules are as such:
- To enter, comment on this post between now and Saturday, October 6 at midnight PST. Open to anyone with an active blog - make sure it's included when you comment. Winner will be randomly selected by Monday, October 8.
- The winner gets to pick one pattern to keep for him/herself and host a giveaway for the rest!
- If you do win, please consider making a donation to The Brooke, a charity close to the heart of Catherine, who so generously provided these patterns.
Now the details:
My Pattern Pyramid Parcel had 5 patterns plus a Burda magazine. The hardest part of all this is choosing just one to keep - it has really brought out my inner greedy pattern hoarder! But I have decided to keep the Burda - and to pass it on sometime next year. TJ, the first recipient of this round of patterns, suggested making up your pattern during the giveaway period and passing it on - I do not have the time to do that right now, but I agree with the sentiment. Instead of giving in to that inner hoarder, I'll use it and pass it on - recorded here for accountability! I'm also adding in 3 vintage patterns that I recently picked up at a thrift store.
Butterick 6965 - 1950'sThis one is new to the pyramid - Roobeedoo added it in hopes that it will be made and worn in a warmer climate than Scotland!
Simplicity 3385 - 1960's
Polynesian 181 - 1970's
Burda 7694 - recent
Vogue 1046 - Anna Sui - 2008
Simplicity 7672 - 1976This is for a jacket, pants, and - wait for it - "pantskirt"! I think the jacket is great, though - look at that interesting detailing on the back.
Simplicity 4076 - 1952(ish)This is for "girls' tap dance trunks, blouse, and skating outfit" - really, how could I pass this up? Even if just for the drawings on the envelope.
McCall's 7990 - 1982Misses' Ballet Costumes - Halloween maybe? This was another one I just couldn't pass up.
Plus, you get your very own Pattern Pyramid label to sew into whatever you make! Good luck!
