The Super Crappy Spring Double Giveaway

Since I have had no motivation to sew this week, (I am gluten intolerant and accidentally got glutened on Easter which meant I spent the earlier part of this week on the couch.) I am going to host another giveaway. This time to thwart this years crappy spring. (Seattle is the town spring forgot. Not to mention the horrifying tornadoes in the U.S. South or the Japanese earthquakes. Ok, Seattle's eternal greyness pales in comparison to those other events, but I think we could all use a little mood lifting. Getting glutened also makes me kind of depressed, fyi.)

First item up: Simplicity 2209 (sizes 14-22)

I have made two of these dresses already (three if you count the bad one) and they already have pretty heavy rotation in my wardrobe.

Second Item: 2 1/4 yard 48" stretch cotton sateen

This is a mid-weight sateen perfect for a skirt or dress. What appears to be black on my monitor is actually a dark brown. This is a really lovely piece of fabric that matches nothing in my wardrobe and makes me look sallow. (I have olive skin that is hard to match with yellow. )

Here are the rules:

1) You have until midnight (PST) Sunday May 1st to enter.
2) This giveaway is open world-wide.
3) Please leave a comment letting me know which item you would like. (You may request both, but each item will have a separate drawing.)
4) I will announce the winners on Monday May 2nd. If you do not leave an easy way for me to contact you, you may want to check back on Monday or Tuesday to see if you won.
5) I will use to pick a winner.

Good Luck!

Ooh, I'd be happy to get either one!

(gluten-free is HARD. Did it for a short time myself)

Laura said...

I would love to try out the Simplicity pattern!

Josephine said...

Lisette patterns seem to be popping up everywhere lately. I haven't tried one yet but I would love to give one a go. The fabric is gorgeous too. I don't want to seem greedy but either would be a lovely surprise to find in your mailbox. Hope you're feeling better soon.

The fabric would be a nice addition to my meager adult suitable stash. Hope you're feeling better!
