  35. Lovely giveaway😊 I'm quite surprised by the size range they offer so will be sure to check them out thoroughly. In terms of patterns, I see several lingerie and sleepwear that tempt me (like Butterick Pattern 6031 or Burda 7186) 😊 I also have my eye on some of their vintage patterns like the Misses Vintage Blouse, Skirt and Bra Top Simplicity Pattern No. 1166 - too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's tough choosing between so many goodies, but I'd have to go with the Alder shirt dress and maybe the Alder shirt, or Phoebe dress. Thanks for the chance to win!

  45. I've been eyeing Simplicity 8053 and some of Simplicity's Cynthia Rowley patterns, mainly, but also Colette's Laurel. I've been wanting a good shift dress pattern and Laurel seems like a good choice - plain and with loads of room for variation.

  50. Fab giveaway! But you do realise £25 is nowhere near enough for all the patterns I want! ;-) Ok, I would probably choose Sewaholic's Pacific Leggings and the Colette Patterns Jasmine Top. But I have been lusting after the Tilly and the Buttons Mathilde Blouse ever since she made it on the Sewing Bee, so that might have to sneak into the order somehow as well!

  51. i like simplicity 1124. Some many ways to wrap that dress.

  53. I would go for the Colette Beignet (I've been wanting to sew it for a couple of years) and the Tilly and the Buttons Bettine. My email address is thewardrobearchitect@gmail.com I'm also following on Facebook and Instagram

  55. I love the Butterick Pattern 5708 but I'm struggling to see how it would fit in my every day wardrobe. McCalls Pattern 6884 is probably much more practical. I've followed S.E. on Instagram and Twitter.

  61. I have to be really boring in this one. I own some lovely Colette and Sewaholic patterns that haven't made it to the top of my list yet. Grainline and most of Tilly's are too small for me. I really want a couple of basics from McCalls, their pencil skirt and a-line skirt in 5 lengths are the top of my list.

    ReplyDelete
  62. New pattern store, exciting and possibly a bit dangerous .D Tilly's Fifi and Sewaholic's Pendrell blouse are currently on the top of my wishlist. I started following Sew Essential on Instagram. e-mail is essi.prykari[@]gmail.com (without the parenthesis of course)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Woah! Do you ever get overwhelmed by the sheer choice?! I'd go for Gertie's Butterick 6285 (circle skirt and wrap top) and 5895 (capri's and tie waist shirt) or maybe Grainline's Scout or Linden. I need separates!!
