Giveaway Day No. 2 {Best of Summer!}

I can hardly believe it’s already Saturday. We are leaving in a few weeks for the rest of the summer, and I’ve spent the last couple of weeks in a frenzy of sewing, photographing, writing blog posts, and reading books in preparation for a summer away. Well, the reading wasn’t really in preparation of anything–it’s really just out of obsession. I just finished Insurgent by Veronica Roth and am now completely desperate for October to arrive and with it Alegiant, the third and final installment in her Divergent series. Haven’t read them yet? Get started now! If you like young adult novels like The Hunger Games, you’ll love these. I’m desperate for more of Tris and Tobias!

So, wait. Why am I talking about books when I’m supposed to be talking about sewing patterns and giveaways? I must have gotten my loves confused.

Since I’m already sidetracked, I feel the need to show you a sneak peak of my current work-in-progress. See, I’m still sewing even though you haven’t seen my stuff in a while! Soon, friends, soon.

Now back to giveaways! Let’s do a quick recap of last week’s Best of Summer sewing pattern reviews, then I’ll reveal the winners for last Saturday’s giveaway, and THEN I’ll open up entries for this week’s giveaway. Mmkay?  Last week week had some excellent reviews from:

iCandy with a review of the Isabella dress by the Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop
Imagine Gnats with a review of the Hosh Pants by LouBee Clothing and the Tumble Tee by Imagine Gnats
Elegance and Elephants with a review of the Bubble Dress by Straight Grain
CoupleJones with a review of a Simplicity pattern from Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts, and tips for remixing commercial sewing patterns
Skirt As Top with a review of the Pop Over Sundress, a FREE pattern by Oliver + S

Thanks for taking the time to share these reviews with us, ladies!
Thank you all for participating in the giveaway! I emailed the winners (Nancy S., Dotted W., and Brooke J.) and they will be receiving their pattern packs soon. Congratulations, you three!

    I really wasn’t to try and sew up a swimwear, so “C” would be great, but I really like that pinafore as well from “B”. So… I will let you decide 🙂 stitvinidze (at) gmail (d0t) c0m

    All the patterns are adorable! Since I have to choose one, it’s giveaway package C.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

    Very hard to choose but since I already have some patterns from the other blocks, I’d really like Pack C. Love the sailor dress and am wanting to make some boys’ shorts too. I’m Nicole at: cicely(dot)ingleside(at)gmail(dot)com

    What a fabulous giveaway!! I’ll chose pack C as I don’t have any small girls to sew for… And Peek-a-Boo has great patterns for bigger boys. 🙂 Thanks for a chance to win! 🙂
