I'm In A Give Away Kinda Mood

Just about a month ago I shared with you the pattern that I tested for Lolita Patterns. The testing was actually done during the summer, but the pattern wasn't released until October. 
The ladies of Lolita had a vision for their pattern envelope and they weren't going to give up until it was right, so they decided to hold off on the release. Since I tested the pattern for them, they very graciously gave me one.
The closure is so unique and cute.
 And it works so well. Just bend up the bow which has a metal strip behind it,
 and slide open.
I love the pattern, but since I printed off the pdf and did all the work to tape it all together, and there's no reason to just throw all the work I did into the recycling bin, I've decided to give it away. You'll receive the printed pattern, not my pdf version. Lucky somebody!!!
So, Here's the deal,
1. You must be a follower of this blog. You know, that little box with all the smiling faces and the blue tab     that says "Join This Site."
2. Leave a message on this post by Saturday, November 9th and let me know that you would like to be included in the drawing.
I will draw names on Sunday, November 10th and announce the winner.
That's it! Good Luck and may the pattern gods be on your side!!!!
Happy Tuesday Everyone :)
Rhonda

P.S. Remember the pattern pyramid giveaway ends tomorrow, so make sure and get your name in the pile if you would like to be included. Here's a link, http://www.rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2013/11/i-won-and-so-can-you.html

  7. Unlike most of the newer youth oriented patterns, this is a look I think I could pull off. You certainly look stunning in it. My only quibble it that it is certainly a much higher waisted design in real life than the illustration on the envelope.
