Vintage pattern giveaway.

~ Simplicity 2154 ladies slip dress ~

I recently purchased a few vintage patterns on ebay (more on that later). One of the sellers was selling two of these vintage slip patterns in the one auction. The item description did not say whether the pattern had all the pieces, so I took the chance and bid hoping that with the two combined I would end up with a complete pattern.

Arriving home after work yesterday I found the package waiting for me on the door step. After tea I opened all the patterns to check all the pieces were there, and found that both the slip patterns were complete! I know that I have no need for two of the same pattern, so I am giving one away to a lucky reader!

The photo above shows an example of what the pattern looks like because I haven't yet found the cord to connect my scanner up yet. I have modified the pattern sizes to the correct size in the picture to prevent confusion (36B 39W). The pattern envelop is pretty tatty, or you could say well loved, but the instruction sheet and pattern pieces are in perfect condition.

I think this sized pattern is a good giveaway choice, because it could be easily scaled up or down depending on your size. Due to my 'pear shape' the bust is a little large for me, but it will fit my hips. This pattern would be perfect for underwear or even a summer dress.

Anyone anywhere can enter this giveaway simply by leaving a comment on this blog post.

The winner will be drawn at 8pm 4th September 2011 Sydney time.

Good luck!

  1. What a lovely giveaway! :) And a gorgeous pattern. Though I'd probably make this to wear as a normal dress. I'm after a princess seamed dress pattern at the moment because I bought a RTW princess seamed dress and it's very flattering on my waist.
    Thanks for having a giveaway :)

  2. Oh yay great prize! It's a bit big for me too but I've heard princess seams aren't too hard to grade. Haven't done it yet but this could be a good opp!

    And I really want a slip pattern too.

  3. What a great prize! I have actually been looking for a slip pattern for a dress I made and this looks perfect!

  4. Hello there, I like the pretty slip, please count me in for the giveaway. Thank you!


  5. Oh that is such a pretty slip, and I think it might fit perfectly (which has probably jinxed it lol) Thank you so much for the change to win :o)

  6. Yes it is a very pretty slip and very useful for sheer dresses - great giveaway!

  7. many times have I wished for a vintage figure to match the vintage patterns I so love?

    Lucky for me it's usually not too hard to jiggle patterns ... and if all else fails, I have a tall, lithe teenage daughter!

    Beautiful pattern, Sam

  8. Count me in please! I've been looking for a nice slip pattern, and this is (hopefully!) just my size.
