Simplicity Giveaway!


**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**

Simplicity are completely synonymous with sewing and easy to follow patterns, so I was delighted when I was contacted recently to chose my favourite patterns to share with you.

The Simplicity website is really easy to use, packed with great patterns and provides all the information you need to chose your pattern, it clearly shows you the guide to what type and how much fabric you need.

I chose this easy-to-sew pattern of trousers, short and skirt options (love those pockets). These would be great if we have any more summer sun and the skirts would be cute with tights if we don't:


Then there's this pretty top with great variations and I'm sure there are so many fabulous fabric combinations you could use to make them. Again this would suit all seasons and be a wardrobe staple:


Finally my very favourite is this beautiful dress. A Simplicity archives vintage pattern, circa 1943. I love that it could be a day dress or an evening dress and I adore the vintage look. I think it would be incredibly flattering too:




**The giveaway is only open to people in the UK, Europe and Australasia**

I am giving away one pattern to each winner so there will be three winners!

There are also three chances for you to win:

Good luck!

  3. Whilst my favourite pattern is pattern three I'd got for pattern two as three looks like something I'd love to wear but could never make!

  7. I think I'd go for the dress, it's lovely. I'm pretty curvy and I do think it might be flattering. With that in mind, the top would be my number 2 choice.

  9. All the patterns have something that appeals to me so can I make it easy for you and say I'd take any of them if my number came up? Great giveaway Lucy!

  10. If I should win, I would select that retro dress. I think it would be a challenge to sew, but it looks so good! can see it in a lot of different fabrics!

  11. It's a VERY hard call - they are great choices, but I think the skirt. Or the top. Or the dress. Okay the top - that's the most practical. Aggghhhh

  16. I'd have to go for the second pattern - it looks easier to sew and I'd be more likely to wear it!

  19. Thanks for the chance to win, Lucy. I'd choose the New Look top. I can see lots of possibilities for wearing with skinny jeans and leggings.

  20. I think the tunic top would be easy and useful. The dress is my favourite but I could never wear anything like that. jennylarking@gmail.com
