My First Giveaway!

5:56 PM 12 Comments A+ a-

Do you read Pixie Patterns and Sewing? If you don't, you should! Tiffany is a super talented seamstress (and Zumba instructor! seriously impressed...) and she makes the cutest clothes (here's one of my favorite creations of hers)! Not to mention, she lists the upcoming sales at JoAnns and Hancock fabrics every week so I can be lazy and avoid having to look them up myself! A few weeks ago she announced that she was starting an online pattern shop and I immediately went to the website and started drooling over all the cute patterns. So of course when she contacted me about doing a giveaway on my blog I jumped at the chance! Then, she sweetly offered to send me a pattern to sew myself and feature on my blog. Such a doll! I had a hard time choosing but I finally picked a great Butterick See & Sew from the 80's to go with an amazing piece of umbrella printed vintage silk I got at an estate sale.

I was going for a blousey, tie front dress like this:

And this is what I ended up with. I really love the way it turned out! The silk was not the easiest to work with but it's so flowy and pretty now that it's done!

I'm thinking it needs a big belt, but I don't know what color. Any ideas?
Close up of the umbrellas. So cute!




Now for the giveaway! Tiffany is generously giving 2 winners one pattern of their choice from her website! In order to enter you must: (Note: the Facebook link has been fixed! Sorry for the mix-up!)

1. Be a follower of my blog
2. Follow Studio P Vintage on Facebook here.
3. Visit the Studio P Vintage website and pick your favorite pattern, then leave me a comment and let me know which one you want!

You must enter by Friday, September 16th, at noon Central time in order to win. I'll randomly draw and announce the 2 winners on Saturday, September 17th.

Also, Tiffany is giving Presserfoot Propaganda readers a coupon code for 20% off, good for the month of September. Enter PFPTAKE20 at checkout for the discount. You can use it as many times as you want in September!

Good luck everyone and thanks again Tiffany!

I couldn't find the Studio P Facebook page! Can you post another link?

Also I like this dress: http://host5.shoppepro.com/~studiopv/item_143/McCalls-9505-Dress-Pattern--1985.htm

I think It could have a lot of possibility with the right fabric!

Thanks for the giveaway! :)

Ooo - love your dress! I think you could rock quite a few different coloured belts with it. How about pink/magenta to go with those gorgeous shoes?!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I'm the in the UK, so I'm not sure if I can enter...but just incase I can, I really like the blouse/skirt pattern, See & Sew Butterick 3216...perhaps inspired by your dress!

Off to 'like' Studio P Vintage on Facebook now :)

Thanks for hosting the giveaway! I'm officially following in all of the ways that you listed. I really like Simplicity pattern 5128.. the Pants, Culottes, Short and Halter top pattern.

http://host5.shoppepro.com/~studiopv/item_71/Simplicity-5128-Pants-Culottes-Short-and-Halter-Top-Pattern-1981.htm

I was itching for a few more but I narrowed it down to that one :)

Thanks for sending me this way! What a great giveaway! Maybe we'll do a tradesy (of sorts)! I really like your dress! The fabric is adorable, and I think you could pull off just about any colour belt. Although I'm inspired by your shoes, so a lovely raspberry belt. :)

My favourite pattern is this one: http://host5.shoppepro.com/~studiopv/item_18/McCalls-9326-Five-Section-Dress-Pattern--1968.htm
