Pattern giveaway!

Hello Blog Friends!

With a holiday on the horizon I've been trying to tidy loose ends and have had an amazing time of finishing all my half done projects that have been hanging around for far too long.
I've got three new skirts, two new dresses, two pairs of pants (one long, one short) and a whole lot of space in my sewing room. Some of the projects have been left to idle due to a lack of interest or an unpicking job that I just wasn't keen to tackle but I've bit the bullet and either thrown the project out where unsave-able and just not goddamn worth it (I'm looking at you Burda) or finished it and I feel so satisfied!
In celebration I thought I would do a pattern giveaway so here is the Mccall's 6069 1 hour dress (YES! you read that right!)
This pattern is brand new and uncut and is size 6-14.

To win, simply follow me via bloglovin' and comment below with what you need to finish in your project basket!
Winners will be drawn at random Monday 27th and announced on the blog.


  1. Free pattern? Yes please!! I have no projects started as yet but lots of ideas. Looking forward to attending your intermediate class as soon as photog is over! x

  2. congrats on getting so many of your projects finished :D I wish I was as productive as you, I have so much I want to finish and so much I want to get started on. The main thing being my mad men dress that I was supposed to have done last month :( naughty me!
    I would love to be included in the giveaway - I am already a follower on bloglovin
    Does this dress really only take an hour?

  3. I have so many projects in my UFO basket. I have a swimsuit, grainline maritime shorts, a vogue blouse, and a few baby dresses. I lose steam on a project when I get frustrated - by fabric or a particular step.

  4. I would need about one month work off work, chores and cooking! Susan

  5. I have a bunch of alterations sitting in my to-do basket. (and I followed on blog luvn.)

  6. In my project basket... There is a muslin for a pencil skirt, then the skirt itself after a first attempt at fitting.
    Thanks for the giveaway !

  7. Nothing in my project basket yet, but lots of ideas swirling in my head! Just have to learn how to use my sewing machine properly and then I'll be on my way!

  8. A dress in one hour sounds amazing Jaye! My unfinished project is my madmen dress...not for too much longer though. :)
    Good news - I found my foot! Thanks for lending me yours on Wednesday!

  9. Well done Jaye getting things finished and getting rid of unfinishables! I have just finished something that worked well and it's more a case of unstarted projects and a growing stash of fabric that I need to do something with. Does that count for the pattern giveaway??
    Enjoy your holiday!

  10. I'm am just beginning learning how to sew so right now I have no projects, just practicing stuff before I go all in. Would love to win! Followed you on Bloglovin.

  11. I follow you on Bloglovin'. I need to hem some pants and make a couple baby quilts in the next couple of weeks. I've never sewn a dress before, so I would love to win this pattern and try! :)

  12. I follow you on bloglovin. I checked reviews of this pattern online and it looks like its really a one hour dress! I would love to win this and make several.
