Me Made May Giveaway #4

Thursday, May 22, 2014
Competition is now closed.

Okay Me Made May-ers, here it is, the lucky last giveaway for the month!


Penny, over at Dresses & Me, is kindly sponsoring a pattern of the winner's choice from her amazing selection of patterns all by independent designers. From Sewaholic right through to Colette Patterns, Penny has the lot. Oh, and she's a fellow Kiwi, which doesn't hurt, we're a nice bunch down here :)

If I had to choose (which luckily I don't have to since I can't actually enter!) it would probably be a competition between the By Hand London Elisalex dress (I can't believe I still don't have this pattern yet!) or the Victory Patterns Hazel dress.



To sweeten the deal, I'm also going to be giving away a copy of The Afternoon Blouse pattern to the winner! Yay, two patterns, one competition!!


So, how do you enter? Simply head on over to Dresses & Me, choose a pattern* and let me know in the comments what it is.

The competition is open worldwide, anyone can enter (not just Me Made May-ers) and it closes at 12am Friday 30th May (NZ time).

Happy sewing everyone!

xx
Jen

*Prize does not include gift vouchers, sorry.
