When I started this blog, it was with the intention of chronicling the sewing I was doing. I never would have imagined that 200 of you would want to follow along with me! I'm amazed and honored that so many are interested enough in what I do to follow. So, as a big Thank You, I thought a little giveaway would be fun.  ETA: Jo pointed out that my Google Readership is actually 368! Wow, even more reason to celebrate!
Up for grabs is an early 80's Vogue Designer Pattern by Renata. It is a size 8 and all of the pattern pieces are intact. I am in love with the top view with all of the tucks across the bodice - fabulous!
Of course with your lovely new pattern, you'll need some fabric. I'm offering a generous 3 yards of poly/lycra crepe in a lovely creamy beige. It has a lovely soft hand and would be stunning made up into any of the views in this pattern.
To go with your fabric, you will also receive 5 yards of lace in a shade slightly lighter than your fabric. Although the pattern is unembellished, a little lace never hurt anyone. I'm sure it will make a lovely addition to any project.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. Be sure that you leave a way to contact you if your profile does not link to your email address. Anyone may enter - I am happy to ship internationally. You don't have to be a follower, but hey, it would be cool. I'll close the giveaway at 8PM (Mountain Standard Time) on August 5th and announce the winner on the 6th. - This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who participated.

The pattern is lovely, and the fabric you selected for it is fabulous. Congrats on 200+ followers; we love your sewing efforts.

BTW, your July output was very impressive, especially for a lady with no furniture!

Cool pattern, and the fabric looks yummy! I wish I had saved some of the patterns from when I started sewing in 1979 - some of them would be cool now too.
