Vintage pattern giveaway!

Does anyone fancy having a go at making this? I have just made up a toile of the dress and decided it's not quite me. It's too narrow in the skirt for my liking and rather than fiddle with it, I thought that someone else may suit it better.

The pattern is for a sleeved/sleeveless dress, tunic and trousers. The bust is 36", which in real terms is roughly a size UK12. That's what size I am and it fitted me well!


If you fancy giving it a go then leave a comment and I'll pick someone from the hat on Sunday 23rd March.

I'd love to try it, I think it would be a great new dress for spring! Feel free to disqualify me if the postage to the States is too much though...

Certainly not disqualified! You may be an automatic winner anyway if no-one else comments by the end of the day! ;-) free toile will also be included! X

Ooh! Love it! But i'm in Canada, so same as above... it might bee too much to send it across the pond. :)

I'd love it, but I'm in Canada, so it might be a postage issue as well...

I love dresses like this, but it might be a bit big for me. Lovely idea to have a giveaway!

No worries about the postage, I'm sure it won't cost too much! Maybe I'll just post without the toile for an international winner to keep down the cost! X

Huh, it's my size! I'm not really sure if it's my style either (as in, I love the style but I don't know how it'd look on me!), but it's from an era I have a soft spot for...

Lovely! I really like the 70s style! However, this is a few sizes too big for me. Boo.
