Payin' It Forward With a Giveaway

UPDATE: This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thanks for entering, everyone!

Readers, when I win, you win. Because yesterday I got an email from the lovely Suzannah at Adventures in Dressmaking to tell me I had won her Violette Field Threads giveaway. Violette Field Threads sells original patterns for girl's clothing and accessories, and I've already chosen the patterns I want:


The Adele:

The Molly:

The Vivienne:

Adorable, right? But here's the thing, readers: my prize was for $75 worth of Violette Field Threads patterns. But at $8.50 a pop, I could nearly buy their whole collection for that! So I want to pay it forward and give one of my readers their choice of patterns — and not one, but THREE patterns! That's right: we're going halfsies (approximately).

So leave me a comment below to enter.

And to get another entry "Follow" my blog, and then post in the comments section to tell me that you did. (If you already follow, post that too, and you will get another entry.)

You can enter until FRIDAY, Dec. 16 at 9 a.m. The winner will be chosen at random shortly after that. You can be from ANYWHERE to enter (the prize will be emailed to you as PDFs). But remember, if you post anonymously I can't can't find you. So leave an email if your address is not linked to your identity on Blogger.

  5. I actually want the same three you chose: Molly jacket, Adele dress and Penelope skirt. I can't tell if I'm a copycat or you just have exceptional taste. We'll go with the latter!

    I'm already a follower on Blogger and Twitter. Thanks!

    I love the Vivienne skirt!! I've been trying to figure out how to draft a similar one but a pattern would be so awesome to have!!! The Audrey dress is also adorable. The Chloe dress is a classic as well...

  12. I just found you, and just in time too! I have two little girls so I'd love to win your giveaway. But I do live in the uk so you may prefer not to send things across the Atlantic which I would completely understand.

  13. This isn't an entry (unless of course, you want to also teach me how to sew, and buy me patience and competence with my hands), but just a note to say that you're on fire and that we should buy a lotto ticket together soon. I'll totally go halfsies on that with you.

  14. I originally found you via your adorable Max costume post on BurdaStyle, and have been reading your blog and your husband's hilarious blog for the past couple of months (you are both hilarious). I'd love to attempt "The Molly" for my daughter. Thank you for such a generous giveaway!

  17. I love the Molly jacket! The Lucy pant is adorable and the Olive top looks really functional... Just a bit longer and it could be a dress. So comfy in jersey, too!
