As any followers of this blog know, I have begun to collect German pattern magazines and I have several pattern sheets without the accompanying magazine but this is no barrier to making any of the patterns as a picture and construction details are on the sheet… the barrier is the scant, old German instructions!
So, on to the giveaway (with apologies for the poor quality pics):
* A German pattern sheet from WWII, with suits, dresses, gowns, skirts and children’s clothes.
2 German pattern sheets from 1961 - dresses, skirts, jackets, coats, trousers and children's clothes.
2 German pattern magazines from the 1950s WITHOUT the sheets, but great images for inspiration.
Simplicity 5783 – a 70s pattern with a 30s/40s vibe.
Some vintage notions – Rick rack trim, lace hem facing, hooks & eyes and snap fasteners, a buckle, 6 glass heart buttons and 3 1930s plastic buttons.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below, maybe mentioning what sewing plans you have for 2012, or anything you like really. For an extra chance to win, post about the giveaway on your blog and let me know in another comment. You don’t have to become a follower if you don’t want to! I will post to anywhere in the world and will choose a winner at random on Monday 9th January at 8pm GMT. Please remember to leave your email so I can contact the winner.
* I thought I’d best mention that the 1930s/40s pattern sheet comes from the National Socialist magazine. It was part of a job lot on ebay and I only discovered what ‘N.S. Frauenwarte’ was when I googled it after I received them. Most of the magazines from this era have Nazi references and propaganda but I wouldn't want anyone to be offended by this.
