Set 1: skirts! Simplicity 4763, a size 6 juniors' wraparound skirt, circa 1960s, and Butterick 6789, a size 10 straight skirt with pleats and pockets, no idea of the date.
Set 2: work-appropriate attire! Simplicity 6454, a size 14 1/2 top, pants, and skirt, circa 1974, and Vogue 7599, a size 14 jumper, circa 1970s. Golly, you could even wear the jumper over the top over the pants, and then use the skirt as a cape for warmth!
Set 3: a complete size 14 wardrobe! McCalls 9672, a size 14 dress, circa 1969, and Simplicity 6235, a size 14 unlined jacket, top, pants, and skirt pattern, circa 1970s.
Set 4: okay, this one was just because the pattern pictures/illustrations were too funny (also because the patterns were $0.15 at the thrift store, so why not, in hopes that someone might actually find them useful?). If nobody wants them, I'll just keep them around for the amusement. Simplicity Crafts 8211, hippopotamus stuffed toys in different sizes (LIFTING WEIGHTS, NO LESS!), and Simplicity 8944, a size 44 men's shirt pattern (the model could use some lessons from Zoolander), circa 1981.
That's quite some mathom, eh? Here are the rules:
- Leave a comment, telling me which set you are in contention for, as well as what you enjoy about my blog. Because it's my blogiversary, I can ask for my ego to be stroked a little bit, right? Alternately, you could tell me that it is not okay to ask for ego-stroking, but then, let's just say that it's highly unlikely that uhhh, random.org will choose your comment as a winner...
- This giveaway is open to all geographic locations, with the exception of Antarctica.
- Don't be allergic to cats. I'm pretty sure Walnut slept on the stack of patterns last night, as I've found random hairs stuck to the jaggedy edges of the pattern envelopes. Even though he's hypoallergenic, in today's litigious culture, I don't want to be responsible for anyone going into anaphylactic shock.
- Same as previous giveaways: it goes without saying, but you really should be a follower of my blog. I'll assume that you're a follower if you leave a comment. Also goes without saying, but I hope you really intend to sew up the pattern! Please don't win it just so you can turn around and sell it on Etsy, shred it for hamster bedding, or use it to decoupage a Regretsy-esque wooden plaque.
I'll close the giveaway at the end of the week, on Friday, June 8, 2012, at 11:59 PM PST, and announce the winners on Saturday morning. Again, thanks for reading Cation Designs!
