I rolled my magic purple ten-sider to find a winner for the 1930s-themed giveaway, and came up with a winner. Actually, the first time it rolled a zero (aka, a ten) -- the one number that wasn't assigned to a commenter. So maybe it ain't so magical. But on the second roll, it came through for me with a seven, and that's ...
Marie, I just checked my old emails and I still have your address from the last round of give-aways -- let me know if I should use some other address instead. I'll get the book in the mail to you early next week. I hope you find it useful, and I look forward to seeing what you make with it!
I enjoyed reading everyone's reasons for sewing vintage. I'm still trying to figure out my own answer to that question. I don't have much in the way of personal style, and am kind of a sloppy dresser most of the time. I certainly don't aspire to a vintage lifestyle. I do like "old stuff", though, and always have ... not sure why! Plus, I always was (and continue to be) the kind of kid who pined for the 64-count box of Crayolas. And later, when the 96-count box appeared, I had to have that too. Together, these things may go some way towards explaining my vintage pattern collection. As for the rest, maybe I'll figure it out if I keep on sewing!
