Sew Chic and Sew Fabulous! A Celebration and a Give Away

Quite a few years back, I fell in love with a movie entitled, "Seven Years In Tibet." There's a line in the movie that I thought was especially poignant,

"The success of a friend is a true blessing."

Well, today, that is especially true. Laura Nash of Sew Chic Patterns will now be designing a line of patterns for Simplicity, WOO HOO!!!! I couldn't be happier for her. If you'll remember, our first Sew News sew along of the year was Laura's Valentine Slip. 
Being not only the lovely, but gracious lady that Laura is, she would like to say thank you for making the Valentine Slip sew along such a success by offering to give away 1 of her new Simplicity patterns to one of you. Here's a look at the pattern,

The dress has an elongated waistline with princess line seams through the bodice. The pattern also comes with the cute little bolero jacket. I see so many possibilities with this pattern, and I love the twirly skirt.
If you would like a chance to win a copy of Laura's new Simplicity pattern, 
1. Leave a message on this post
2. Go to this page and sign up for the sew along. 
3. You must leave a message on this post AND sign up for the sew along in order to have a chance at winning the free pattern.
*A note on the sew along. The sew along will actually begin on Monday July 13, 2015. Laura decided to push the date back just a bit in order to give everyone who would like to sew along with her a chance to purchase their pattern.
The winner of the free pattern will be announced this upcoming Monday, July 6, 2015.

Congratulations Laura and best wishes toward your future success!!!!
