Best of Summer: Saturday Giveaway Day One

It’s Saturday, which means we’ve already had FIVE DAYS of sewing pattern reviews here at CailaMade! Phew, this is going by fast! I have a very exciting giveaway to share with you today, but before I get to that, let’s recap the summer sewing patterns we’ve seen so far:

Roly-Poly Pinafore pattern by Imagine Gnats, sewn and reviewed by ME!
Scrappy Twirl Skirt pattern by Whimsy Couture, sewn and reviewed by Sumo’s Sweet Stuff
Vintage V-Neck pattern by Blank Slate Patterns, sewn and reviewed by Designs By Sessa
The Junebug Dress pattern by Craftiness Is Not Optional, and the Class Picnic Shorts pattern by Oliver + S, sewn and reviewed by SewVery
Big Island Board Shorts pattern by Blank Slate Patterns, sewn and reviewed by Alida Makes

I am so thankful for these ladies who shared such excellent reviews with us. It’s really fun to read about their favorite patterns and see the different versions, isn’t it?

Now, on to our GIVEAWAY! Before I share the details, I want you to know that each blogger chose her favorite pattern before I contacted any shops about a giveaway. These patterns were chosen organically and all our opinions are our own in these reviews. After I received the Master List of Favorite Summer Patterns I emailed these designers about putting together a giveaway for YOU, my lovely readers.

As a result of their generosity, we have THREE amazing packs of patterns up for grabs today! 

A few of the patterns in these packed have not been reviewed yet, but I bet you can guess what some of our upcoming reviews are about. *wink*
To enter the giveaway for these three pattern packs, use the Rafflecopter widget below. The only requirement is that you leave a blog comment to enter the giveaway, answering me this: What is your favorite color for summer sewing? Be sure to enter in the Rafflecopter that you left a comment!

For additional entries, you can like all of our Facebook pages, but it is not required.  You will receive one additional entry for each Facebook page that you “Like.” If you have any questions, let me know!

The giveaway will close at 12:00 a.m. PST on Saturday, June 15th. I will announce the winners in a blog post next Saturday, and then the second giveaway will go live. Yes, there will be two more giveaways after this! Hooray!

Good luck, everyone!

    I think any of the warm colours are great to see with for summer but I especially like hot pink and yellow together!! We are just entering winter here in Australia and all this talk about summer is making me jealous of warm weather!

  2. says

    What is your favorite color for summer sewing? Well I must say red. It stands out against all of the other colors and pops right out. Red against yellow…wow!

  3. says

    oh thank you for this wonderful opportunity 🙂 I think bright colours are great for summer. I love blue, yellow, green, red, orange :)Like Georgia, I cannot wait for summer! Winter has only officially began, and I am already over it hahaha

  4. says

    Depends who I’m sewing for… Me… Turquoise all the way! My daughter, usually pinks, any and all, but venturing outside my comfort zone to daffodil yellow. Hubby, he can buy his cloths from the op shop and as for friends, depends on what colours I think look good on them, oh and my mood too… 🙂

  5. says

    Any type of light airy print, on white fabric. I just picked up 2 yds of a blue flower print on white voile- so pretty & summery. 🙂

  6. says

    I’ve been loving blues. All blues! Navy and denim-y blues as a neutral and light blue, royal blue, aqua/turquoise… Of course, I end up using a bunch of other colors too but blue is my favorite.

  7. says

  8. says

    aqua in the summer and turquoise in the winter. I have to be careful as I tend to get stuck on those colors! I do love green, as well, though!!! This is a very useful giveaway for me! Hope to win and thankful for the chance to enter!!!

    I love using bright colors. Stripes are my favorite for summer! I mainly sew for my 7 month daughter, so she can wear just about any color or print!

  10. says

    Almost everything I’ve made for summer so far has been some shade of blue, but I’m really loving teal and red together too!

  11. says

    Oooh, what fun patterns. But I really have to pick one color!? It’s my all time favorite color and there are so many shades, it’s perfect for any sewing 🙂

  12. says

    I would usually say orange, but since this is my first summer to have a little girl I’ve been sewing with a lot of raspberry/hot pink. Thanks!

  13. says

    Navy is my favorite color in general these days but I’d love to pair it with something bright, like hot pink!

  14. says

    I love white in the summer as it instantly brightens an outfit. However I don’t love white clothes worn by my daughters in the laundry!

  15. says

    Well for me Summer means YELLOW which is also my favorite color and my birthstone November Citrine I also love yellow & white gingham & seersucker !!!!! Thanks for the give away Love all you LADIES !!!!

    My fave color for summer HAS to be orange! I LOVE orange-pink & purple but if I had to pick one, it would be orange!! Caila I found you during one of the sewing contests when you made the CUTEST dress for yourself & I haven’t stopped watching you since! You are incredible!!! Your clothes are so fun & your “models” are SO stinkin cute! When you made board shorts & had a few friends over for some pool time, I could NOT believe you would think ANY-one would have noticed that your son’s shorts were handmade!!! From the outside they looked totally store bought! You ROCK my friend!! Thanks for this FREAKIN AWE-some giveaway!!! (I WAS singing awesome back there)!!

  19. says

    My daughter is stuck on a nice royal purple. We have incorporated that color into some really fun summery dresses for her!

  20. says

    White has been big for me this summer, but I have a cute peach & navy combo planned that I’m very excited about! 🙂
