Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways Day 7!

Welcome to Day 7 of our giveaway series to celebrate Sew it All TV season 4 airing on PBS September 1st!

Thank you all for joining the discussion about Project Runway yesterday! I got a lot of votes for Ven as the favorite with Sonjia a close second. I must say, Ven’s pink rose top from the first episode was so striking, I still think about it! There’s a new episode on tonight!

Congratulations to yesterday’s winners of the book DIY Couture: Create Your Own Fashion Collection by Rosie Martin: Maria Kievit and Bonnie! Please email to receive your prize!

Learn more about creating your own fashion collection and running a fashion show from none other than Project Runway season 9 contestant Fallene Wells in her Sew it All TV season 3 episode “Forever Fashion.”

Today we’re giving away a copy of Christine Haynes‘ book, Chic & Simple Sewing. 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 season 2 episode and learn to make a raincoat from a shower curtain: “In the Trenches.”)

Get another chic and simple (and free!) sewing pattern from season 3 guest Ellen Switzer, who demonstrated how to draft a pencil skirt pattern and then adorn it with quick-and-easy ruffled roses in her episode, “Dart Details.”

To enter to win this prize, answer this question in the comments section, “When was the last time you made a skirt?”

Was it for yourself or did a family member request one from you? The last time I made a skirt was in college, unfortunately- and it wasn’t even for me! Share your skirt stories with us here and maybe win a prize for it!

The Day 7 winner will be announced tomorrow, along with the Day 8 prize! Good luck and have a great Thursday! icon smile Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways Day 7!

    Last time I made a skirt was in the 80′s. It was for my daughter. I haven’t sewn clothing for years, but I am going to make a dress for myself this week. I am excited about getting back to sewing clothes for myself. I didn’t give up sewing. I have been quilting.

    November. That’s when I bought my first sewing machine and my first project was a black skirt. Gave it a yolk and an invisible zipper. Wasn’t the best choice for a first project. Had to undo it many times because I kept messing up but eventually I finished it. Success is the worst teacher. I learned a lot from that project. :)

    The last skirt I made was approx. 2 years ago. It was for myself. It’s just a casual skirt- I’m wearing it today!
