Giveaway time!! (Aka time I stopped winning and started sharing)

I recently won two giveaways. I’m not bragging I promise. Though I am super chuffed!!

The first was the Anise coat as mentioned in my last post.


As soon as I won fear excitement made me immediately book a jacket making course!

I’d mentioned previously the course was a Christmas gift I was lucky enough to receive. Well I’m hoping to get stuck in the world of tailoring with a Chanel jacket and build up to Anise from there.

Next up I won the sew grateful giveaway from Vintage Follies, thanks to the delightful Cherise. She’s great if you’re not aware of her blog. I mean check out this awesome dress she made before including the remaining fabric in my giveaway.


I won a vintage pattern, oodles of gorgeous red buttons and the leftover lingonberry fabric!

Well winning more than one giveaway when I didn’t host a giveaway myself is unbearable to me!!

So here is my giveaway. It’s modest but I hope you like it.


You can win the Kirsty Allsopp Craft book, a vintage simplicity dress pattern (single size 12 bust 34), vogue 8666 dress pattern (sizes 6 to 12), 9 unusual black and white buttons, 9 square mother of pearl style buttons and a cute owl tape measure.

I’ll send anywhere! To win just leave a comment on this post before midnight (gmt) Thursday 28th February.

Good luck!!
