Sponsored giveaway – Mrs Depew Vintage

My friends, I'm leaving you for a whole week! Tomorrow I fly out to Spain to stock up on some elusive Vitamin D in time for the inevitable onset of autumn/winter here in the UK.

Don't worry though, I have a special treat for you before I go - a special treat in the form of my first sponsored giveaway, courtesy of the lovely Anna and her recently launched website Mrs Depew Vintage. You may already know Anna from her wonderful blog, A Few Threads Loose, which you totally need to check out if you haven't yet!

Anyway, Anna is offering one of my lucky readers the chance to win any printable pattern or e-book  your heart desires, from Mrs Depew Vintage. Generous, or what!?!

There are so many stunning items to choose from, I guarantee you will have trouble picking just one!

I recently bought myself this rather chic blouse pattern!


There's also a super cute collection of beachwear...

...a lovely collection of e-books...

...some seriously dreamy lingerie patterns dating as far back as the 1920s...

...and hat patterns to die for, even for the gentleman in your life!

To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below (including your email address), by midnight (GMT) on Saturday 8 September. You don't absolutely have to, but just because I'm nosey and it's fun, feel free to tell me what you'd pick if you won. 

I will announce the random winner on Sunday 9 September...the exact time will depend on if there are any delays to our return flight.

Thanks so much for sponsoring such a generous giveaway Anna!

  5. Oh my goodness, I love this giveaway. It's hard to choose exactly what I'd pick, but that 1930's negligee might be calling to me-- I really want it all!

  10. I love the 1930s Bell Sleeve Blouse (#1126) and I would definitely get that :) The 50s inspired bathing suit is fantastic too, but I'm just not ready to tackle swimsuits yet. Maybe next year!

  11. Just tried to post but the internet ate my comment! At any rate, I was saying that I have many of these items favourited in my Etsy profile. It's a terrific shop and a great giveaway. I particularly love the top.

    It is hard to pick actually but I have been eyeing the beach bra or the tap pants..SIGH just like them all really!!!

  18. I would buy the same blouse drapee pattern that you showed here. My e-mail is laura.toomast/at/gmail.com That one-piece bathing suit is also one of my favourites.

  19. Oh thank you for the giveaway! I would be adventurous and either go with the garter belt or the french pin up bra - I've never actually seen a garter belt pattern before!

  20. I am a fan of the blouse pattern as well. studded.pink@me.com

  21. What adorable patterns!
    It's so hard to choose, but I might pick a skirted swimsuit pattern, since I'm in need of a new swimsuit anyway, and that's a relatively modest design.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Have a lovely holiday - envious from dreary scotland. To cheer me up, a wee bateau top would do nicely, eclareathotmail.com

  23. Ooh I love these patterns, they're AMAZING! I think I'd have to go for some retro swimwear, so cute!

    Fingers crossed!

    Wow, some amazing patterns there! I love the halter top, and also some of those pin-up bras, although I'm not sure I'm quite ready to tackle bras...

  25. I think I'd go with the Bra and Tap Pants set, they look very similar to the ones in "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day", lovely movie.

  32. Marie, first of all, enjoy your stay in Spain, and don' t forget to pack your Hazedale with you, of course! Bring back pictures to share!
    Second of all, I' m very glad with your first giveaway, you are right, I 'm drooling all over the screen with those patterns. And I very much value the fact that these patterns are downloadable!
    As a sucker for sundresses, I'd go for this one.

  38. Oh, I love giveaways. Maybe I'm lucky.
    Ii's really hard to choose from all those lovely patterns, but I think my choice would be either the e-book "Underwear and Lingerie" or the pattern "4 Delightful French Hats".
    Happy Holiday,
    Constance

  39. Thanks to you and Anna for the giveaway. I think I would either choose the lingerie e-book or the 4 hats pattern. Or a vintage bra? Gosh, so many pretty patterns!!

  70. I read recently that the term "tap panties" was not used until the 1970s. Is this true?
    All the vintage ads use simply panties or step-ins or some other term, but not "tap panties"
    Is this a case of reverse projection.

  71. I'd pick the bias tap panties with the scallop edging. They're adorable.
