April Free Pattern Giveaway!

First up, congratulations to Liza Jane, who is the winner of March's free vintage shift dress patterns! Liza Jane has a very inspiring blog that I have followed for about a year - I especially enjoy her posts on printing fabric and love her bright and inspiring colour combinations. Liza Jane, I know this is a 'slightly busy' time for you but I will be contacting you for your details tonight and will quite understand if there is a delay in replying!

For April, the giveaway will run slightly differently. All the patterns below are up for grabs on a first come first served basis. If you want a pattern or even two, leave a comment with your blog or email details so that I can contact you for your address. I will then send them out immediately to the first claimant. All patterns are complete in factory folds with instructions, multi-size UK sizes as stated, although I am happy to ship anywhere in the world. My hope is to maybe kick start someone's spring/summer sewing!

Apologies for somewhat grainy quality of photos. They were taken on my iPad past my bedtime (I wish I was being ironic there but I really appreciate my sleep right now!) and I am afraid the images reflect that! However, hopefully they should be sufficient to show the general style lines. Any patterns unclaimed by 6pm on Tuesday 30th April 2013 will be donated or sold.

I hope you are enjoying your spring/autumn sewing. Although living here in England I should be sewing for spring, it's still feeling very wintery and I am having trouble envisaging a time when I will need anything less than four layers (on top!) to step outside. I had a busy March both at home and with work, but I have squeezed in some sewing. I will post my latest soon. In the meantime I hope all celebrating or not have had a happy and peaceful Easter.

Happy sewing, 'til next time!
