Blog Celebration and Giveaway!

I am super excited!! My blog is celebrating its first birthday this month!  That is right - I made my first blog post back in August of last year! I can't believe how time has flown and how much my sewing has progressed!

To celebrate with all of you I am going to host a giveaway that includes one of the first completed dress projects I ever posted on this blog the Lonsdale dress from Sewaholic Patterns, and also a belt kit from A Fashionable Stitch Shop.

To win you must first be a follower of this blog and then leave a comment in the post below with what dress you would make for your own birthday party. Entries will be accepted until 12:00am PST Friday, August 10th. One entry per a person - please spread the word!  International entries are accepted.

(For my blog's birthday I will be finishing my Ice cream Sundae Obsession dress, which I feel is fitting the occasion).


  1. Wow one year already? I think I hit that milestone a while ago but didn't notice. haha I should probably check..

    The dress I plan to make for my birthday is 50s/60s style. Has a cross over bodice, pencil skirt and will be made out of white lace. Now I'm hoping I'll actually have the time to make it!

  2. I would make Butterick 5708 in pink and pair it with some awesome retro jewelry.

    Congrats on 1 year! I love visiting your blog :)

    1. Thank you and Goregous choice! I have that pattern in my list as well!

  3. I dream to a dress with a full gathered skirt with pockets.

  4. Congrats on the one year! I hope I have something to celebrate when my blog is one year old. :) I would probably make the Vogue 1288 for my bday.

  5. Happy birthday.
    My dream dress is the new Sewaholic Cambie dress, if only.
    I am glad I found your blog.

  6. Happy Blog Birthday! I'm following you through google friend connect!
    If I could make any dress for my birthday it would be this one...

  7. Thanks Jessica. I'm glad you like it. I actually have two of them one is S/M, the other M/L.

  8. Sorry I keep cluttering up your giveaway with comments! But I have been moving so slow with the makeover. I started a project for it, something small. I'll finish it today or tomorrow so you'll get to see it in a few days. I made it my goal to complete 5 projects before the end of the year so it's time for me to get going with it. :) What do you have planned? Most of my ideas have to do with strage and organization.
