Update! Extended for one week – Closing date now Wednesday 22nd February 2017
I have a very exciting surprise for you all… The lovely Sonny from The Vintage Pattern Shop has given all Trainee Housewife readers a huge 20% off at her shop! And if that isn’t enough, she has also gifted a sewing pattern for one lucky reader! So it’s time to have a little competition… To enter, simply leave a comment with your contact email and let me know what sewing pattern you would choose! A 1940’s button up dress or a big 1950’s skirt? What would your ideal vintage sewing pattern be? Why not pop over to the shop Here for some inspiration.
I recently made my very own Yves Saint Laurent dress with a 1960’s pattern that you can see Here. The Vintage Pattern Shop supplies a huge amount (over 2000!) of prints of vintage patterns – I dare you to browse the shop of goodies without cracking and buying at least one!
The sewing pattern envelope comes printed in an A4 book, the book also includes some really handy information including: tips for adjusting vintage patterns to your size, facts about your pattern and a table for you to enter your measurements.
The pattern instructions and the pattern pieces then come printed on really thick pattern paper, ready to cut straight out or trace from.
There is such a big selection to pick from – 1940’s dresses, 1950’s skirts and 1960’s frocks! If you need any more temptation to go and see what patterns are on offer, just look at this sample…
So many gorgeous dresses, I want them all! Eek! So what are you waiting for?! Get shopping with your 20% off voucher and commenting for your chance to win one!
The competition will run for two weeks from Wednesday 1st February – Wednesday 15th February. The winner will be entitled to pick one sewing pattern of their choice from The Vintage Pattern Shop. To be in with a chance of winning, please leave a comment before the end date with your contact email address and your answer to what vintage pattern you would choose. The competition is open internationally.
To benefit from the 20% off, please message Sonny at her shop here quoting the Trainee Housewife when you’re ready to make your purchase.
