Giveaway: 100 Followers!



I have 100 followers!

Okay, 100 bloglovin' followers in particular, because I don't know how many of you follow me on google plus or some other reader. Not that you aren't important, you just aren't as easy to find & count!

I want to thank all of you who read and (especially) who comment on my blog, it really means a lot to me and y'all are the best. I know 100 isn't a lot but I love having you out there and I love being part of this great community we have going. Thank you so, so much!

In honor of this occasion--a giveaway :)

You have a choice of two prizes, should you win! 

Option one: all four of these groovy patterns (three are 32 bust and one is 34 bust):


Simplicity 7133 is a jumpsuit/overalls, McCall's 9711 is a jumpsuit/dress in two lengths (this is the 34 bust), McCall's 2434 is a very versatile shirtdress, and McCall's 2146 is an adorable dress with 4 sleeve options and cool princess/hip darts. I tried to pick some that could be totally retro or modern cool, depending on how you style them.

Option two: option two is a mystery box so mysterious that even I don't know what it is! It will probably include some vintage patterns and some cute notions :) 


In order to enter this giveaway, all you have to do is leave me a comment down below and tell me what item of clothing you could make 100 of! Fit and flare dresses? Pants (haha just kidding, this is no one)? Underwear? Alder shirts? Jumpsuits? 

This contest will be open for one week (so until Thursday, April 16 at 12 am). I'll announce the winner here and send you an email if I know where to find you. The contest is now closed. Congratulations to Sarah of StyleSixties, I'm sending you an email!

xoxo,
allie

  2. Congratulations on 100 followers! I could easily make 100 1960s shift dresses, I counted earlier today that I've made 12 so only 88 more to go!

    1. if you made about 1 a week, you would be done in no time at all--you might have trouble finding that much crimplene on short notice though!

  6. I'm really interested in that mystery box! I have just made three t-shirts and been tempted to make them into dresses so I would probably make 100 t-shirt-like dresses in knits, cottons, and drapey silks.

  7. congratulations, (and i am still in awe of your lace jacket) - i think i would make the same a line tunic dress as whenever i buy a vintage pattern, i seem to be just getting a variation on a theme!

    1. thank you, you're too sweet :) I also have the problem of buying infinite almost-exactly-the-same vintage patterns. I just love the pattern envelope designs, I fall for them every time!

  8. Simple A-line skirts. Although.....I would get distracted by new patterns and need to make something else!

    1. I have been meaning to add more a-line skirts to my wardrobe but the same thing happens to me--so many new pretties!

      Delete
  9. 100 of the same thing.... Well then for me it would have to be circle skirts!

    1. I have NEVER made a circle skirt and I have NO idea why!!

  10. Still new enough to the sewing game that the idea of making 100 of anything is extremely daunting! Im working on Gertie's bombshell bustier right now---would love to think that one day I could make 100 of those. Congrats on 100 followers!

    1. oh gosh, i think making 100 bombshell dresses would take me about 100 years!

      Delete
  11. I'm a pretty inexperienced sewist still so it's hard for me to think of making even more than one of anything! Maybe I could make 100 pleated skirts, I just finished one, and it was delightfully easy with all its straight lines :)
    Also, I just started reading your blog recently, and you are so talented! Love your style!

    1. Thank you, Laura, and welcome!

      It's nice to make complicated things sometimes (only sometimes) but often its the simple, useful things I like to make best, like pleated or gathered skirts :)

  12. Yay for 100 follower miles stones and giveaways! You should be so proud! <3
    I have probably made many more than 100 corsets. I used to have an online boutique where I sold steel bone corsets, and gothic clubwear. I might like to make 100 leather bags. I really love leather bags.

    1. WOW that's very impressive! Corsets are labor intensive!

  13. I think I'll probably end up making 100 dresses for my dress-obsessed daughter. I'd prefer, though, to make myself 100 tops/blouses. Congrats on 100 followers!
