To start off my first Me-Made-May I’ve got a giveaway for ya’, and it’s a big un’! This giveaway has something for sewers and non-sewers alike.
From My Stash to Yours
For the sewists out there, I have some patterns to give away. I will mail these to fellow stitchers anywhere around the world.
The envelopes are not in pristine condition and the bell skirt is the only uncut pattern. Without further ado, here are the patterns:
First up, a swimsuit and beach-coat pattern. The top is similar to the one that I used (with some modifications) last summer for my retro swimsuit.
Next, a bell skirted evening dress pattern.
Finally, a basic princess seam dress with different variations. There’s a detachable collar and buttons option, a cute pleat with contrasting insets option, and a dropwaist bow belt option. The dress can be sleeveless or have set-in sleeves.
From My Closet to Yours
As I said in the beginning, this giveaway isn’t just for sewists. When I was going through my wardrobe and making my plans for Me-Made-May, I realized that there are several items that I made over the past few years and rarely wore or only wore once or twice. These dresses deserve to be worn and loved. I can’t bear to give them to a thrift shop, so I thought I’d see if anyone out there might be interested in a couple of them.
First up, a reconstructed dress that I’ve only worn once or twice.
Here’s the blog post about the dress, if you’re curious. Here are the approximate measurements: bust-34-35″, waist-27-28″, hips-free, length-37″.
Second, this dress with a pintuck bodice.
The neckline is cut a bit low for my taste, and it’s always been a bit too big for me. I’ve never really been able to comfortably wear it. Here are the approximate measurements: bust-35″, waist-27-28″, hips-free, length-40″, bodice length-14″.
