Okay, so it's not officially a cool "giveaway" since it's just my stash I'm passing on to others, but a few of you expressed interest in the patterns, so I'll need to draw names for them in order to be fair.
I divided up the patterns into three groups. It was a little difficult because there is overlap of sizes in many of the styles.
Group #1 -- 12 Infant/Toddler patterns
Most patterns have some designs for both boys and girls. Sizes range from Newborn to 18 months on most.
Group #2 -- 16 Larger size women's patterns
Sizes range from 12 to XL. (see size chart below)
Group #3 -- 24 Smaller size women's patterns
Sizes range from XS to 14. (see size chart below)
I've included the size chart to help you know which size you are. Please read: Unfortunately the sizing system for apparel in stores is completely messed up. The sizes are not consistent between designers, and sometimes even with the same designer. And they are NOT the same as the sewing pattern sizes. There are even problems with the size chart they list on their patterns. The "ease" [extra space to make sure you can move in the clothes] they add to their clothing patterns is far more than necessary, making the clothes too big and baggy, even when something is supposed to be fitted. I've discovered I needed to find the size with my measurements, then go down one size (sometimes even two sizes, like from 14 to 12 or 14 to 10) and cut out that size instead of the one that matches my measurements. So that should help you know which size you really are -- no matter what the pattern company says! ha ha [FYI, this is true for Simplicity, Butterick and McCalls. I'm not sure about any other brands]
To enter: Simply leave a comment with which group you would like. You can leave a separate comment if you would like to enter for more than one group of patterns. I'll leave the comments open until Friday at 8 pm PST and will announce the winners on Monday.
