Pattern giveaway! (from the amazing LilyGiggle)

I'm so so excited about today's giveaway!!!!! why you ask - let me tell you just 3 reasons that spring to mind:
  1. Lily Giggle patterns are made with the using of upcycled materials in mind! (She also has instructions for  yardage included in the patterns if you prefer that or find a great deal). However, I love upcycling and how easy she makes it to turn T's on the donate pile into something adorable.
  2. Lily Giggle now has a women's pattern! That's right - you can do some selfish upcycling! (not saying the kids patterns aren't adorable because they are!)
  3. I LOVE free stuff and so I'm sure you do as well - when times are tight upcycling old T's into cute clothes for your kids or yourself is a lot of fun and having a new pattern is GREAT!
I was so very lucky to be one of the pattern testers for her first adult pattern - The Odelia Skirt! I love it! and I love that I can wear ruffles and still look my size (you know what I'm talking about).



This pattern was so easy - clear well written instructions (some of the best I've come across to be honest), plenty of pictures, written in a tutorial format, fully scaled patterns with clear lines for cutting. even if you don't win I recommend you pick up a pattern or two... or three... (and no, I am not being paid to say this).
Bonus - it fits true to size - LOVE it when a pattern actually fits my size! (I'm sure we've all paid for store bought patterns - made the size we buy at a store and it turned out 2 times to large - or maybe I'm the only sucker that just thinks' it'll be fine')

(see my butt looks normal sized still!)

and here is the professional pic from the LilyGiggle blog (a good camera and outdoor lighting really does make a difference!)

Isn't it pretty!

Beth was so kind she also offered me another pattern as a thank-you for pattern testing (I was shocked since getting the free pattern to pattern test is already a huge thanks if you ask me - but who am I to say no to a free pattern?!)

 I picked out the Poppy Bubble Tunic to make for the babes. Love it! It is another great pattern - went together in an evening, fits true to size. I also love the size range 12months - girls7! Awesome! The babes will be getting more of these as they are super cute with a long sleeve shirt underneath in winter and I'm going to make one (or three) dress length for the summer!


(we had local elections here - and I took the babes with me and she got a "future voter" sticker - she looooves stickers!)


As a side note : I do not own a serger (I dream of it one day). I just wanted to throw that out there for those of you scared of sewing with knits on your plain ol' machine - it can be done !

What a great giveaway! I couldn't decide between the The Azalea Cloche Hat (LOVE the ruffles!) and the Dreamy Days Jacket. (Though, the jacket is sized too big for my little one. I could start on her jacket for next year though!)

I love the little girl dresses, I have already purchased the flower pattern to make the little dress for my granddaughter

I already have several of Beth's patterns, but the "Little Big Pants" are my favorite! I have made several pair, and added ruffles to some. They are amazing. If I could pick something else, it would be the secret garden dress, or maybe the Rings of Ruffles pants. . Hard to pick, for sure!
