Giveaway Day!

It's giveaway day over at Sew Mama Sew (well it's Monday here already, so I'm starting the ball rolling early...)


Welcome to all the Sew Mama Sew readers to my mostly quilty blog, The Elven Garden. My other obsession (other than quilting that is) is vintage fabric and patterns. Now I realise that as far as patterns go, you really want to win one that will actually fit you, and is something you'd like to make.

So my giveaway is ANY THREE VINTAGE PATTERNS FROM MY ETSY STORE! 


You can find me on etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/threelittlepeople

I have a something like 90 patterns listed at the moment, including children's, women's and maternity, so you have a pretty huge range to choose from :)

Some of the super cool patterns I have there:


 And HEAPS more.

If you'd like to win, please leave a comment here telling me your favorite style of vintage pattern :)

OPTIONAL extra entries:
1. Become a follower using Google Friend connect (so I know you're a follower) and leave a comment saying so.
2. 'Like' The Elven Garden on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/TheElvenGarden) and leave a comment saying so.

The giveaway will be open until 16th December (7pm CST) when I will use a random number generator to select a winner. International entries welcome! The winner will be contacted by email, so please make sure your email address is available in your profile, or left along with your comment.

Goodluck and have fun checking out all the other brilliant giveaways over at Sew Mama Sew.

I love 1930's patterns best, but I probably look best in 60's style!

I love the late 60's and early 70's styles, as well as children's vintage patterns from the 50's- my growing up years! They bring back such memories!

Michelle Engel Bencsko said...

I grew up using my grandmother's patterns (for her children/my mom) which I'd make for myself: full 50's dresses and narrow boxy styles from the 60's always charm me.

Wowza... Vintage Patterns... I'm in!!! I love 40's, 50's $ 60's styles. Thanks for the opportunity

Tina said...

Hands down it is the Mod Dress for me. I have several of them in my wardrobe, but have never made one. I have a ton of vintage patterns my grandma gave me, but I don't know what the heck I'm going to do with them all. Seriously about 100 more than I can deal with!

I love any kind of pattern that's got a flattering cut for me, regardless of the era :) Things with v-necks, a-line skirts, that sort of thing!

Please send a note to jp@mailinator.com if I win! I'd prefer not to put my real email out in public in case spambots are harvesting the addresses :$

Thanks for giveaway

Njeri said...

I visited your shop and my favorite are all from the 70 especially that woman's slip and panties pattern.

Hana - Marmota said...

Pretty much anything from 40s to 70s - the older ones are more interesting, but the smooth styles of early 70s suit me best. Mind you, I usually only oggle online. :-)

Katey said...

I love things from the 50s and early 60s most of all. Shirt-dresses, fuller skirts...very flattering and cute!

Abby said...

I love 50s and 60s dress patterns. I'll be tracing out a 50s wiggle dress when I get home from work tonight, and it's a style I haven't tried before, so I'm pretty excited about it. :)

I love 50's housemaker dresses! And the long flowy maxi dresses from the 70's:)

sydthewyd said...

I've never sewn adult clothes from a pattern before, but I really want to try 70's! Or maybe some 40s.. but I've never seen any from then..

Esther said...

I really love the styles of the 40's and 50's!!

Thanks for the cool giveaway!

Anne said...

I like that western skirt and the flared skirt with the funky pockets. You don't see stuff with that silhouette anymore, and I think it's really flattering. I grew up in the 70s so I guess I am nostalgic for my childhood. Merry Christmas!

I love the 50's the best.

I am usually drawn to patterns from the 60s and 70s, especially the dresses!

Melissa said...

I like tea dresses. Just really sweet, not to fancy dresses that the ladies would wear out for a casual get-together. You have a fantastic selection of patterns in your shop! I already 'favorited' a couple!
