100th post giveaway!

I’ve made it to 100 posts on this here blog, and I’d like to celebrate by giving away some vintage patterns!

I believe these are all from the 60’s – they certainly look like it, don’t they! They fit a 32 – 32 ½” bust, and as far as I can tell, they are all complete. Two of them even look uncut!

I particularly adore the patterns in the plain envelopes, and the color-blocked illustrations. The traces of a previous owner are endearing to me, from a sketch and a scribbled name on the outside, to an addressed label on the Progressive Farmer pattern – sent to Peoria, IL. It’s fun to imagine what sort of life these patterns have led!

So if you’d like to score yourself some free, vintage patterns, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post! The comments will close next Monday, the 14th of February, at midnight CST. The winner will be chosen using a random number generator, and I’ll announce it here in this post on Tuesday, the 15th of February.

If you want to spread the word about this giveaway in whatever fashion you prefer, please do! Leave a separate comment telling me that you’ve done so (and/or a link), and it’ll count as another entry!

This giveaway is open to readers everywhere, so comment away!

  15. Ok, yes, those are totally 1960s patterns! Awesome boxy A-line look! I’m just popping over from Casey’s blog, and wanted to comment! :) I do have a question – how do you guys “pick” your giveaway winners?? I’ve forever been curious! Btw, I grew up near Peoria, IL!! That’s really awesome to think that those patterns came from a pattern store near my hometown!!

    Ah, so what I’ve done. Today? Well, it’s been rather a fun day. Sewing has been on the agenda, and I’ve made quite progress. My very first sewing attempt with a vintage pattern from 1949 – you can peep at my blog if you wish to see work-in-progress photos…. I am thrilled to be able to learn how to sew – and with vintage patterns at that!

  16. Congratulations! The patterns are lovely :)
