Pattern giveaway #14 and catching up on winners

I got a little behind there on picking winners (and on posting this giveaway lot, too) so let's catch up.  (And yes, apparently is grooving on the number 5.  I didn't do all of these the same day, even.)

Pattern giveaway #4 goes to Samm -- Samm, I couldn't find your email, so send your snail mail address to me (I'm apound on gmail) when you get a chance.

Pattern giveaway #5 goes to Jane of Handmade Jane!

Pattern giveaway #6 goes to Carmen of CarmencitaB!

... and pattern giveaway #7 goes to Gail of Today's Agenda!

To answer a few questions that have been asked in comments about the giveaways:  yes, you can enter (and potentially win!) as many as you'd like!  I am shipping internationally, as well (it just may not be by a very fast method).  And for those who expressed concern about how depleted my own pattern collection might be after all these giveaways, uh, don't be.  I am hoarding plenty for myself!  A couple of the patterns in these giveaways are pictured in that collection, but most were always set aside to be given away or sold on Etsy.   It has just taken me a while to get around to it.  A few years back, it was much easier to score cheap vintage patterns, and I would get huge lots of assorted patterns for a song sometimes.  (I blame Mad Men for ruining this!)  Even after the giveaways, I'll still have two boxes of patterns I plan to re-home.  Most of the remaining patterns are from the 70s, and almost entirely 34 bust: if you have a love for this era and size, you should let me know!

This was a single lot won on eBay in 2009!

If you've read this far, you must want to see the next group of patterns!  Here they are: these are size 40 bust (or 40 hip, in the case of the sport-skort).  If you'd like to enter for this group, please leave a comment by the end of Saturday, March 3.

The "Lusie" dress (at least I think that's what it
says!)  I love this, and have a copy in my size too.

Looks 40s to me!

I love the graphic black and white version
with the yellow belt!  (1963)

I love the artwork on the bottom -- it
would make a great print! (1961)


  1. I love the Butterick dress. For a change these are sized larger than I wear, but hopefully would be simple enough to grade down :)

  2. Please don't enter me for this giveaway Andrea, I just wanted to thank you for the lovely win, I'm thrilled! I've just been to nose at your pattern collection on Flickr - am still in shock! x

  3. Love the simplicity dresses with the long collar (I think it might say Susie, with a stylish S)...

  4. The Lusie/Susie dress is to die for!

  5. I would love to make that 40s pattern!

  6. It's so rare to find patterns that aren't a size 10 :) Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  7. I love the sport skort! You're right - great illustrations at the bottom!
