Welcome to Monday! I hope you were ready for it. And I hope it being Day 9 of our 13 Days of Giveaways makes it a little more bearable.
Yesterday we asked, “Do you use commercial patterns, draft your own or a combination of both?”
Thank you for all your responses! It sounds like a lot of you work from commercial patterns to get the basic outline, then alter for fit and style details. Today, TWO lucky winners were chosen to receive a copy of The Colette Sewing Handbook: Inspired styles and classic techniques for the new seamstress by Sarai Mitnick (Krause Publications, 2011).
And those TWO lucky winners are: Nicholson Massie and Kim Cady!
(Get extra pattern tips from Sarai in her episode, “Pattern Play.”)
Congratulations, winners! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address to receive your prize!
Today we’re giving away a copy of Christine Haynes‘ book, Chic & Simple Sewing to TWO lucky winners!! The book shows you how to make modern, stylish and fun clothes you’ll want to wear every day. You also get full-size patterns to make the more than 20 garments, including a classic shift, A-line skirt, and figure-flattering wrap dress.
(Check out Christine’s episode and learn to make a raincoat from a shower curtain: “In the Trenches.”)
