Fabulous Free Pattern Friday

Happy Friday Everyone!!! Aren't Fridays just the best?!
You may remember this piece from a past Fabulous Free Pattern Friday post. I think it is about the easiest piece you can do. You can find the original post here, and the follow up post here.
The back is shown in the picture below.
I'm including the original instructions in this post. Since I originally posted this piece, so many new people have joined the blog (so HAPPY to have you!). 

And to celebrate all the new followers, I thought I would do a little give away today. Always a fun thing to do. When I posted this, one follower commented, "LOVE this! I had 3 yards of beautiful silk chiffon awaiting the right project, and this is it. Turned out beautifully. Thank you!!!" And Kitty, who
has become a friend commented, "I just finished this. I saw your post early this morning and remembered a piece of fabric I had for some time and didn't know what to do with it. Kind of polyester/chiffon. It turned out great! Thanks so much. Goes with me on my next cruise (whenever that happens to be)!" Kitty just came back from a cruise. I'm need to ask her if she took it with her.
Here's the piece that will go to one lucky follower. It isn't silk, just a polyester chiffon, but it is a great example of how a border print will work with this design.
As you can see the piece is just one big rectangle.
In the above picture you can see that there is an opening in the center. Look at the top left hand corner and you can see the opening for the arm.
This is a little better picture of the arm opening.
Okay, so if you would like to have this piece, leave a message on this post. You must be a follower. I feel it is only fair to all those who do follow. You can become a follower and then leave a post, so don't feel left out. You may leave a message until midnight central standard time August 30th (Thursday). I'll announce the winner next Friday, August 31st. I'll ship it anywhere so all are invited to take a chance.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

    Gorgeous. You do come up with some unusual and beautiful things.


  6. This is just gorgeous and would be a perfect dressy wrap -- so nice of you to have a giveaway!

  7. Hi, Rhonda,
    Thanks for mentioning me in your post. I did wear it on my cruise. Because the fabric I used had a metallic thread running through it, it really dressed up slacks and a tank top and made it dressy enough for one of the formal nights.

  8. How dumb am I? I thought I was a follower, guess I was just a stalker! Love the elegant simplicity you give your creations. This is gorgeous fabric!

  9. I just discovered your blog, through the blog "LaSewista", which tops the list of my favorites. Wow, how glad I am to have discovered you. Thanks so much for sharing the Fendi photos! And for the instructions on this draped jacket. I'm glad to add another inspirational blog to my list.
