About Me

My photo
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!


A different twist today, a men's shirt! Sized chest 46, neck 17, sleeve length 35, waist 42, 4 variations, recommended for knits (cotton knits, double knits), but also makeable with cottons (broadcloth, oxford, flannel, madras, chambray, gingham or even voile and batiste). Think of this as an adventure for your loved one. This envelope came to me sealed in a plastic bag like a vacuum sealed bag, and has never been opened by me, but the original flap seal on the pattern is open. The pattern feels like it has been kept intact, very uniform in feeling it through the envelope, maybe its still factory folded.

How do you picture it? Leave me a comment and link on your blog, for an entry, to be drawn by Monday morning.

Just my husbands size. I'd like a chance at it. Thanks.

Ooh, it's close enough to hubby's size that it'd be an easy fit. I'd love to do the double pocket version in a cowboy print. Small print, though - hubby's not very adventurous.

I gave you some link love on my blog sidebar. http://katiekadiddlehopper.blogspot.com

I just finished my first vintage mens shirt pattern and am now in the search for more. I love it. I'd have to grade it down for my boy but I do that all the time anyway.

Funny... I HAVE this pattern! So don't give it to me. ;-)

The image caught my eye from another blog, and I just had to pop over here and check it out.

I guess that just shows that I'm a bit "vintage" myself. lol
