This giveaway is now closed. I’ll be posting the (randomly selected) winner tomorrow. Thank you and good luck to you all 🙂
Confession: I have this give away ready to go since last November! (photos were taken in early December and everything has been waiting for some time to blog, lol)
Yes, that’s how belated I am right now (blame it on the current workload of school homework and office reports that are filling my evenings and most of the weekend).
Here’s the (almost) completed story:
When it was first released I wasn’t quite taken by Oliver+S Class Picnic blouse as it looked like so many other (free) peasant tops patterns.
Nevertheless, this pattern has the bonus of Liesl instructions which are always a plus for someone like me that sews in the wee hours of the morning/night . (it’s almost like having your personal “sewing” instructor. And I’m not kidding).
Eventually, I ordered the pattern and (surprise) it soon become a favorite!
I’ve only used the blouse pattern (as a blouse and as a dress, lol) and I must admit it really looks adorable on my girl.
It’s a summer pattern, yet I also think it looks quite cute (and functional) during cooler months layered with tops and blouses underneath.
So when Miss M grew out of the smaller sizes the larger sizing was needed.
I was lucky to get a sale coupon for Oliver+S paper patterns before Christmas and decided it was time to invest in the larger size Class Picnic (of course, I may have also taken advantage of the sale to stock on the new fairytale dress. Just saying, lol).
Somehow, there was a confusion with my order (don’t worry after contacting the nice people from Oliver+S, I did managed to get the much-needed larger size) and I ended up with 2 smaller sizes in my stash.
Of course, something needed to be done (storage room around here is scarce and I’m fast converting to digital).
So, I though of hosting the first S is for Sewing Give Away with a few of my favorite things: a great (never-fail me) pattern,a precious lace trim, a remnant piece of fabric (bound to be loved by any girl and extremely soft) and a bit of reading inspiration (both from here, lol)!
The giveaway will include: Oliver+S Class Picnic blouse and shorts pattern (sizes 6 months to 4 years), Papo d’anjo pink wool (enough for making one blouse in the smaller sizes), a pretty lace and a couple of Papo d’anjo catalogues.
Sorry, the baby monkey is not included. It belongs to G and would be severely missed 🙂
The giveaway will be open until Friday, January 25th 2013 (midnight, GMT). I’ll random pick the lucky winner on Saturday, January 26th 2013.
