A Belated Blog Anniversay Giveaway!

Just after I posted my Fashionable Friday last week , I realised that I had reached a milestone - I've been blogging for one whole year! Yay me!

So, in honour of this momentous occasion, I've put together a collection of patterns and vintage sewing notions and am hosting a giveaway as a way of saying thank you to my small band of readers. Here's what's on offer:

Patons Knitting Book #182, c. 1940s
The patterns in this book are so adorable, they're all named after dance styles.
I was so taken with it, I've ended up with two copies!

 Advance 5117
A simple, late 1940s blouse pattern that lends itself to all sorts of creative possibilities.
A bit of bedazzling perhaps...?

A late 1940s Marian Martin mail-order pattern.
This dress has such a funky button over shoulder detail; you could cut the front bodice in a contrasting colour to give the illusion of a top /skirt / shrug combo. The possibilities are endless!

Three vintage belt buckles - two white & one lilac pearl.
How sweet is that 50s daisy buckle? Perfect for a summer dress.

And a set of 4 vintage bow trims.

If you'd like to win all these goodies - that's right, all of 'em - just leave a comment on this post before midnight (AEST), on Sunday 3rd June 2012. Oh, and I'm more than happy to ship anywhere in the world so don't be shy, comment away!

The lucky winner will announced on Monday 4th June.
And, thanks again for reading!

- Tamara
