Simplicity Pattern Giveaway!
Earlier this year, Simplicity contacted a few sewing bloggers asking them if they’d like to host a giveaway of two of their patterns, and I wanted to be able to host a giveaway here at Thread Carefully, too, so I contacted them and asked them if they’d send me some patterns, and they were only too happy to oblige!
I had a hard time choosing the patterns, to be honest because of the sizing! A lot of Simplicity patterns are issued in two different size ranges, and I was concerned about excluding some readers from the giveaway based on the size that I had chosen. Soooo, I opted for the following multi-size patterns:
First up, Simplicity 1612 (size AA 10-18) - a pattern specifically designed for knit fabrics!
I love the cut-out back on this design and the plunging front, and the other view is really cool and quite unusual.
It looks awesome as a maxi dress, or a knee-length dress. The Amazing Tara Cat recently made this dress – you can see her maxi version here if you haven’t already. It is lovely!
Next up is New Look 6587 (size A 8-18) – a simple shirt dress pattern with lots of cute variations.
This is a really versatile dress and shirt dresses are just a classic wardrobe staple in my opinion, whatever your style.
So – what do you need to do to win one of these patterns?
- Leave a comment on this blog post telling me which pattern you would like to win, and what occasion you might wear it for (or tell me where you would wear it).
- Follow me on Twitter (@tabatha_tweedie) and Simplicity too (@SewSimplicity) if you don’t already, and then tweet ‘I want to win a @SewSimplicity dress pattern from @tabatha_tweedie on Thread Carefully – do you?’
You can do either of these, or both to double your chances! I’ll post anywhere in the world. Please make sure your contact details are attached to your profile thingy so that if I pick your name I can contact you easily.
The giveaway closes a week today, on Friday 20th September, at 21:00 London time (GMT + 1:00).
I’ll pick the two winners out of a hat, or a cup or a bowl or something…
