Someone needs to benefit from my total lack of organisation and you may be the lucky one!
Every year I make my girls Christmas dresses. This year I decided to pretend that I was a carefully planning, highly organised person and bought this lovely collection to make Pippa her dress in October:
- The O and S Family Reunion Dress Pattern in size 5-12
- 1.4 m ( a little over 1.5 yards) of this sweet fabric called Sevenberry
- A contrasting piece of shot cotton (sorry, I am not sure of the colour name or manufacturer)
I tried to convince myself that maybe I had lost it before I even got home, but deep down inside I knew - it was somewhere in the chaotic black hole I call my home.
I finally gave up, re-bought the pattern and fabric and made dresses for both Pippa and Madeleine.
Once the dresses were complete, I found the original pattern and fabric tucked into my... hat box.
So, one lucky Sew Mama Sew reader will reap the benefits of my disorganised life. The winner of our giveaway will receive the pattern and fabric. There is enough fabric to make a size 5 (or possibly a size 6 dress) or the shirt version in any size. I love O and S patterns. Every time I use one I learn a new skill. The Family Reunion pattern is no different. I will use the techniques I learned making these dresses to put on all my facings in the future - such a great way to give a lovely finish.
So to participate in this giveaway, you need to help me out.
I must get my life more organised and I have decided that 2012 will be the year to do it.
Please leave a comment with some advice about how you keep your life organised so I can benefit from your wisdom. It could be a tip about cleaning, diaries, weekly planners, storage ideas or even a link to a tutorial - anything that you think will help me get my act together.
The giveaway will be open until December 16 at 5 p.m. PST. A comment will be chosen at random and that lucky person will be the winner. We are happy to post internationally. Please make sure you leave an email address so we can contact you.
Thanks so much for all your help and good luck!
