Sewing that's Retro, Geek, and Chic
So, you may have noticed my previous post was a bit long. But did you stay with me till the end? Did you see there was a giveaway? You did? Well, it’s time to announce the WINNER!
And thank you for all the nice comments! It means a lot to me when I get some even from those who aren’t wanting to enter a giveaway!
As with my past giveaways, names were placed in the hat:
My husband drew the winning name, and the lucky winner of the Spearmint coat pattern is:
Congratulations, Fwaire! Please email me your mailing address and I’ll put your pattern in the mail. =)
I have plans for a second version of the coat thanks to Leila because she posted a photo of this:
So I’ll be drafting a new collar and adding some other details. I think I’m going to make this version unlined, with bias finished seams on the inside. It will be an olive-y cotton corduroy:
Of course I wish I had copies of the pattern to send to everyone else who entered, but you can buy a copy from Lolita Patterns in downloadable pdf or already printed on pattern paper. A sewalong will be coming soon on the Lolita Patterns blog.
Congrats to the Fwaire!! And OMG I LOVE that version you are going to make. I wish I had thought of it! I can’t wait to see yours. It is going to be AWESOME Brooke!
hehe, I think your response is about the same as mine was when I saw that photo on Leila’s blog! I’m hoping to start making it as soon as I clean and reorganize my sewing room. Best part is I already have a mockup half finished – just have to change the collar. =)
That is going to be one AMAZING coat!!!
Thanks – I hope so! I think the slow down in the end will be trying to find buttons.
I can’t wait to see the new coat… that is going to be incredible!
I’m on the hunt for buttons! =)
PLEASE line it with that amazing fabric!
lol – I’m still pondering it. I’ve been saving that fabric for so long knowing that I want at least a skirt out of it. But I have 4 yards, so there’s plenty for both a skirt and a lining. Decisions decisions… =)
Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! 😀 So exciting!! I better go and buy some more fabric…
I love that version of the coat! And that tape fabric is just brilliant!
You’re very welcome! I’ll do my best to get it in the mail in the next few days (Monday’s a mail holiday, so it might be a little longer).
I look forward to seeing your version of the coat! =)
That’s fine, gives me lots of time to scout out some fabric. 😛
Hopefully I’ll do the pattern proud! 😀
