Simplicity​'s 'Get a Vintage Look' Blog Social and Pattern Giveaway

Right. So this is the situation. See those three sewing patterns pictured below? The Simplicity pattern company gave them to me (and four other sewing bloggers) for free, but you can also get your hands on them for nowt by entering their giveaway. Being offered up are five sets of three patterns comprising of #2444, #1913 and #2282.

To show potential customers (aka members of the online sewing community) how these vintage-inspired patterns could look all sewn up, Simplicity have asked five of us to make one of them and blog about it on a certain day in the near future. The intention of this endeavour is also to highlight other sewing blogs that readers may not be aware of by linking to each others. So here's who else is going to be showing us their versions of these patterns and when you can expect to see the finished items:

28th March (today), Suzannah at Adventures in Dressmaking
29th March, Sunni at A Fashionable Stitch
5th April, Lavender at Thread Square
9th April Me at 'So, Zo...' (obvs)
10th April, Tilly at Tilly and the Buttons

Ha! You'll notice that the British girls go at the end because it took us the longest to receive our patterns! Anyways, go and check out the final versions and give a holler to the other laydeez, then come back on Easter Monday to see what I've whipped up! Plus you've got until 15th April to go and enter the giveaway to win your own set of these patterns.

I am jealous. What a cool blogging thing to do. I especially love the peplum wiggle dress. I might need to make that one up for myself.

How exiting! They look awesome. I popped over to let you know I used the ice cream striped jersey you gave me at the swap. Have a look! http://beebeesvintagedress.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/reveal-i-match-my-gardenrenfrew-and.html
