Ooh, I love the walk away dress but I wouldn't say no to the Vogue or the Ottobre either :)

Miss Emmi said...

Oooh, I would love a chance to win either the Walk-away dress, or the McCall's 4826.

Truly, I would love all of them, but that McCalls pattern is super wonderful. Take care!

Hi Sarah,

I would love to win the pattern for the walkaway dress... I'mm drooling over it for quite a while... the others are nice too, but this is my absolute favourite!

It is practically unknown here in Germany... I'd love to change this :) it's just my style (I think) I loooove it

my adress is: sim at ateliersim dot de

Lauren said...

I love the walkaway dress and the Titanic dress, can I enter for both please?

email is nementai at gmail dot com

I'm also in love with Katharine Hepburn (my middle name is Katherine, after her) but not the right shape to copy Audrey, sadly! I'll definately join in the sew along. My blog is
What a fun thing to be doing!

Sewfast said...

What a fun giveaway and intriguing project! You have my wheels spinning for my own Hepburn/Hepburn inspired wardrobe. Here is a link to my post about it. Please enter me in the pattern giveaway. First choice would be tht Ottobre (never gotten my hands on one of those yet) or any of the patterns besides the walkaway dress (I already own that one) Thanks! Mary

Sarah said...

@Lauren - Absolutely! You can enter to win as many as you like. :)

@Mary - Thanks for your post and I'm delighted you'll be sewing along with me! :)

Amanda L. Woade said...

What a lovely giveaway! I'd love to sew along with your Hepburn wardrobe, but I have so many half-finished projects of my own!

I'd like to enter to win that Retro Simplicity 8640, or the designer Vogue pattern.

Sarsaparilla said...

I haven't sewn a thing in 20years...just love old patterns for some I will keep myself out of the running for the giveaway.

This Hepburn & Hepburn Fall & Winter Project of yours sounds so inviting though. I LOVE Audrey and Katharine. I'm tempted to find something easy to make & join you...

~Sherry~ said...

Your Hepburn and Hepburn project looks really great - inspiring!
I'd love to go in the draw for the Irene Galitzine Vogue pattern - I love the 60's!

Garnet said...

I love the Hepburn/Hepburn project! They're both so stylish.

I personally can't wait for the August 20th. It's Katharine's day for "Summer Under the Stars" on TCM.

Anywho, I wouldn't mind giving the Ottobre Magazine a new home!

I love both Kate and Audrey! What a great project. I will be watching your progress. And...making some similiar pieces thanks to your inspiration. Isn't it great that the flared pant is finally on its way out? Not to mention the low riders!!!

Sarah said...

I'm really happy to see how many of you have entered. I have doubles of some of the patterns offered (the 2nd ones stay in my stash) and some have been languishing in my stash for far too long. They need good homes! :)

I'm glad I'll have company sewing along with me during this project!

Karin van D. said...

Oh I can't wait to see all the garments you will be making. I am thinking about joining, but haven't decided yet. I don't know beforehand if I will have the time with my three little ones to sew as much as I would want to if I'd join a project like this. But the icons you chose I exactly my taste and I can't wait to see your versions. I bet they will be wonderful!

The giveaway is so generous. I woul love to join. I would be happy with any of the patterns, only the ottobre magazine I already have. I wish you all the best with the project and the drawing!

Elsie said...

I would love the ottobre magazine. And I LOVE your Hepburn project. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I wish I could join in, but I only sew in winter!

Miss Dandy said...

Cool giveaway! I would love a chance to win the copy of Ottobre magazine. I have a 10 month old who will soon be a walking and talking toddler and I need to get motivated to sew more things for him to wear! I posted info about your giveaway at my blog:

I am still dreaming of the walkaway dress :) I'd loooove to walk away with it... to my sewing machine!
