I was recently thrilled to be approached by Simplicity to try some of their patterns, post a review, and host a giveaway.  I think it would have been foolish churlish to refuse.

So I didn’t. Tra la laaaaaaaa!

I’m currently working on the top I’m going to review, so the proper giveaway will come when I’ve finished that and can share it with you.

You know how it is with school holidays…sewing is the last thing you get to do! 😉

However, when I received my patterns I found that I had been sent 1609 by mistake and in the wrong size (it’s a 6 – 14), so the lovely folks at Simplicity are sending me the right pattern (woot!) and have said that I can share 1609 with you.

Simplicity 1609

Thanks, Simplicity.  It’s so kind of you.

So, whilst this dress isn’t my thing, it’s certainly an adorable pattern.  The wonderful Gertie has made 5, yes five!, versions of this.  That’s one hell of an endorsement.

Check out Gertie’s blog for the other versions…they are all really cute. Although you wouldn’t expect anything less, would you?

To win this pattern just leave me a comment on this post before midnight GMT on Sunday 18th August.  I’d love to hear what fabric you’d make this up in.

I’ll be happy to post this anywhere in the world.

Bonne chance, mes amies!
