Thank you Debi!

Exciting news has come my way - I've won my first ever giveaway!  (Yes, the firsts for everything will still be exciting for me, so please bear with me!)

Debi over at My Happy Sewing Place has announced that I have won this shirtwaist pattern in a giveaway:

This pattern is from Style Print, a British patternmaking company.  I'm looking forward to working with a vintage pattern from a company I've never heard of before - it'll be a real adventure!

I'm thinking I'll be making view A, probably with shorter sleeves - anything with long sleeves has a very short season up here in the north.  And I'm of the opinion that full skirts flatter my figure (very very small bust, disproportionately large hips/rear) more than straight skirts though, though any input into the matter would be appreciated - it may just be what I'm used to seeing myself in.  Anyway, that's a topic for another post.

Debi is also hosting an event called Sew Grateful, in which she encourages bloggers to use some special fabric or notions that was/were gifted to them, a pattern they've won in a giveaway, and so on, and then showcase their creation on their blog in the week of November 21st.  While we don't really celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, I'm all in favour of this idea!  Even if the pattern doesn't arrive in time (or if it does and I can't make the dress in time!) I will try to use this as my contribution to the Sew Grateful project. 

I encourage all of my readers to go and check out Debi's lovely blog, and consider participating in this special project.

Thanks again Debi, and I can't wait to get stuck into this pattern!
