Oh my goodness! I never expected to get so many new followers and comments for the patterns! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I hope all the new followers continue to stick around and hopefully enjoy what they see and read! Thanks to ALL of my followers and regular commenters. Every comment and suggestion means so much.
So to the giveaway winner! I decided to give away patterns to 8 people instead of just 4. It's my giveaway, I can change the rules :) And this way, more people get something! Also, the last two patterns, I randomly drew from the winners and slipped in one of the extra patterns so two of the 8 will get 2 patterns! Because everyone had different "favorites" I read through all the comments and for each pattern, put in the names of the people who wanted that particular pattern in a bowl and then drew. I promise I closed my eyes!
For the Butterick Blouse the winner is: The Vintage Mexican Seamstress!
For Simplicity "Funky Dress"the winner is: Sarah!
For Burda 6900, the winner is: Elyse!
For the Laura Ashley Dress the winner is: Jeannine!
And for the Leotards the winner is: Modern Suzie!
The winner of the Asian-inspired gown is: Carly Manson!
The hammer pants winner is: Penelope10!
The winner of the bolero, pants set is: Kim!
Of all the winners, I drew two for the the additional skirt patterns.

Next up: I have a charmeuse striped 80's blouse I made last Thursday to show you and I'm working on a chambray button up shirt! It's almost done, but school just got in the way.
