- I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Friday Pattern Giveaway!
Today's freebie is B5173 in a size 16, B 38, W 29, H 40. A semi-fitted slightly A-line dress with optional sleeves, a slightly standing neckline with a front slit. Some of the Vogue patterns with the funnel neckline from the past year remind me of this look. No date, I would give it late 1960's, suitable for linen, pique, broadcloth, synthetics, brocade, gabardine, lightweight wool. I would also include double/stable knits (probably included in synthetics). An economical pattern, it looks like you can make it with 2.25 yds of 45" wide or 2 yds of 54" wide plus a bit of interfacing. Also need a 22" zipper and hooks/eyes, optional seam binding.
Leave a comment with your name and how to contact you. Also please link this giveaway to your blog! I will post a winner Monday morning.
Have a nice weekend, I hope we all get well soon, 2 kids and myself have had a summer cold and congestion.
