A Personal Giveaway

personal giveaway-2

I was cleaning out my drawers last weekend when I came across some sewing fabric and notions that even though I love, I don’t need. I’ve had some for just months, some for years, but at this point, they’re all taking space with no foreseeable purpose. My life has become consumed with bra making – and I like it that way – and these items are from when I sewed mostly clothes. The polka dot fabric is leftover from this amazing project and came from Mood Fabrics in NYC. I remember when I bought it. It was a little over a year ago when I made a trip to see Lauren in the city. Great memory. The other items are a hodgepodge of trims and vintage notions. I don’t say it enough, but I truly appreciate your loyal support of my sewing adventures. As a thank you, I’m giving it away. You don’t have to like my Facebook page or follow me on Instagram. You don’t have to share this post or pin an image. All you need to do is comment below on what’s on your sewing table this summer. That’s it. I’ll choose a winner one week from today, June 10. You can be anywhere in the world and enter. I’ll pay for shipping.

You rock!

    On my sewing table right now and the next few days is a beautiful satin wedding gown from 1945 that I am….adjusting for a September wedding. A young bride is wearing her grandmother’s wedding gown. I am sewing new lace cap sleeves on, and dropping the sweetheart neckline to be more flattering. Steaming the veil and beading the comb with vintage pearls from old broken necklaces. I love projects like this.

    I don’t want to enter the contest or anything. I just want to tell you that Jesus loves you very much. He died to pay for all of our sins and when we put our faith in Him we can be saved.
    Jesus Christ sacrificed Hisself for all the sins of the world, because the Bible says that the wages of sin is death, so He essentially took the death we deserved as sinners on the cross. (He rose from the grave 3 days later.) And He did so because He loves us and He wants us to have eternal life. We have all sinned and done our wrong in this life, but the Bible says that when we put out faith in Him, and turn from our sins we can be saved, no matter what we have done wrong in the past. He is the only way to have eternal life. He will forgive our trespasses and wipe the slate clean. So I encourage you to seek to know Christ for yourself today. God bless.

    My biggest sewing project this summer is the dress I’m wearing to my brother’s wedding. I’m planning on using Vogue 1422, a Tracy Reese design that looks very elegant. I’m going to muslin the bodice, then make it up in a beautiful Nani Iro fabric. I’m not sure if this will be the final look – I might eventually make it in a silk to be fancier, in which case I can wear the Nani Iro version to friends’ weddings! Oh, p.s. I’m officiating my brother’s wedding! So this is a special dress!

    I’m designing and sewing bra and panty sets! I spent so much money over the years on lingerie that was uncomfortable and didn’t fit well that I finally got the idea to sew my own. It was a new endeavor for me since I had not made underwear before but have really been having fun making them and wish I would have done this ages ago! Still have lots to learn about the art of lingerie making but am happy to report that none of the pieces I’ve made bite, pinch or crawl!

    On my sewing table right now I have butterick B5832, a civil war era style dress with modern sewing techniques. I doubt I’ll have any where to wear it, but there are so many sewing skills involved with making it that I haven’t tackled yet so I’m using it as a learning project. Plus, the fabric was given to me by a friend, and what else can you do with 6 m of floral cotton??

    First of all… you rock and ever since finding your blog you’ve been an inspiration to me to keep on truckin’ with my sewing!

    This summer’s docket consists of finishing up projects I’ve started and tackling new areas in my sewing. I scored vintage silk scarfs at a flea market over the winter so I plan to hack those up and make a skirt for fall, as well as figure out what I can make with this vintage gauzy floral fabric I also scored a while back- hopefully before summer’s over! As for tacking new areas in sewing… I was asked to make a RV awning for a 1970’s Airstream RV. The pattern isn’t so hard, but the volume of fabric will be the challenge that I’m so totally up for!

    What a great idea to give away some of your personal stash! I’ll take inspiration from this, and organize my own, and I bet I won’t be the only one! What am I sewing this summer? In addition to exploring new bra patterns (natch), I’m planning a shirtdress (something I’ve never worn in my life) to be made with a linen print, 2 light trench-style coats (1 will be out of a sheer iridescent espresso-dark organza!), and most likely several more dresses/skirts/tops that I can wear for tango (Argentine tango is a personal passion).

    Oh, my goodness! So many entries! I am practicing my new pattern-drafting skills and applying them to traditional Austrian dirndls. My mother grew up wearing dirndls, but I never had one until I made my own. I’ve learned how to make them the old-fashioned way and drafted my own pattern as women used to do. And I now want to make patterns for an assortment of other sizes, and to sew them out of Italian linens for summer and Scottish woolens for winter. I love doing hand embroidery and will use a lot of that as well as vintage trims. I also have completed the first pattern for a blouse to wear with it. It sewed up beautifully. Will make those out of lightweight, handkerchief linens and whisper-weight cottons. And linen petticoats and silk aprons (the easy part). And by winter I hope to have the first draft of a dirndl jacket… Lots of work. Learning loads as I go.

    I am currently sewing a polka dot summer top. About to start the zip ! Still a newbie sewer so this is always the deal breaker !

    I’m planning on making some breezy tops and dresses for the summer heat. And a dress for my brother’s wedding! But I seem to always be abandoning plans for something new and shiny.

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’m working on jeans, and a 2-piece dress right now.

    Right now it’s a plaster cast of my torso I’m filling with expandable foam to make a dress form, then it’s back to tank top maxi dresses and ruched sundresses for a festival next month! Thank you so much.

    I haven’t sewn in YEARS. I’ve set up my Fair Lady sewing machine in my used to be home office and I’ve started cutting out some dog beds for a rescue organization. I own a large number of vintage sewing machines and I really should be using them! Fingers crossed the beds come out the way I’ve imagined them!

    Hi Maddie, I’m Maddy!
    My husband just gave me a new Singer sewing machine for our 13th wedding anniversary, and on my sewing table at the moment is material and a pattern for a simple jersey top, as it has been many many years since I sewed. Today is the 10th, and if it’s not to late, I’d love to enter your giveaway as someone coming (back) into machine sewing. Have a glorious summer!

    Thanks for the fun giveaway. 🙂 Right now I’m working a little tote for each of my granddaughters. They are two-year-old twins who love to carry their books around.

    I am going to learn how to paper-piece and make some fun sewing projects with them! I love trims!

    I’m freezing down here in the middle of our Southern Hemisphere winter, so I’m going to start work on my Grainline Cascade Duffle Coat this weekend. I have some cashmere/wool blend in a gorgeous cherry red just waiting to be cut out 🙂

    It’s winter here in Melbourne, Australia – so I’ve got some more snuggly projects lined up! I’m hoping to make a pink, full-skirted coat from Gertie’s Butterick pattern, and a tea dress for my sister’s birthday. And, of course, a bunch of new bras! 🙂

    I’m actually finishing sewing some summery items for myself and my daughter, and I’ve just found out we are invited to a wedding, so I’m happily browsing through fabric options and patterns 😉
    Also, I’ll be opening my own shop with clothes for girls, so I’m ordering samples of fabric. How exciting! 😀

    Greetings from San Francisco! Summer projects underway include a few tops and pants from Burda and a dress from Vogue. I am also getting a head start for fall with a wonderful cape pattern from Paco Peralta. Thank you for your wonderful blog!
