Hello fellow sewing enthusiasts! Are you ready for the first pattern up for grabs? Rules are simple, if you follow me already, leave a comment, if you don't, follow me and leave a comment. And for an EXTRA entry, post a comment on your blog and leave a link to the post in the comments. Entries will be tallied numerically and, because I'm a geek, I will use dice to pick the winner. I'm thinking I'll film my kids rolling the dice for me. It will be cute, promise. (And don't worry... I have LOTS of dice, including more than one 20 sided.) Entries will be cut off June 20th at midnight.
Ok, here it is! A vintage Vogue pattern 6551, I am dating this somewhere between 1947 and 1952 due to the after "New Look" vibe but before printed patterns became popular. All the instructions and pattern pieces are included and nicely folded. As suggested already, the pattern is un-printed. There's a beautiful tuxedo bib detail and tailored collar. This would look beautiful done up in a wool crepe, silk faille, or a cotton poplin for areas with mild winters. This is a size 16, Bust 34", Waist 28", Hips 37". And don't worry, I've got something a whole range of sizes!
