It's about time!
Pattern Junkie and I laughed out loud when we read Marylin's comment. So the bronzer and teeth whitening nightmare is being sent her way.
She is not the only one who won something. Last week, BurdaStyle had a twitter Selvege giveway and I won!
I am sure I will love it as I have checked their site many times for inspiration and all I have seen is some kind of beautiful. Check it out!

The Week Of Plenty

What an amazing week!
My friend Armelle let me look into her treasure box of French vintage patterns and I almost fainted. This one is dated 1936 and is for a "combinaison", a slip if you will. I love that all the instructions are on the enveloppe. It's brand new, uncut and I wanted to wear gloves while holding it.
Though not quite the same period, I think it would be a great undergarment for Cathy's new dress!

For myself, I borrowed this one, from Modes & Travaux. I love the collar and I'll be making a muslin with my new €1,50/m off white cotton fabric I bought at IKEA yesterday. I think the combination of princess seams - darts will be tricky to fit properly.

Now look what have you here? A film on the pattern. It's so quaint.

In other news, the His & His pyjama pants shipped yesterday. That was the funniest bit of sewing I've ever made, the first time sewing for my brother and can't wait to go to the pyjama party!

The cute C&W vest I made with leftover fabric from the Kenzo for my neighboor's poney club party was a great success. 

You have until Friday to post a funny line here, the great Pattern Junkie will be the judge. 
And, last but not least, this Savage Chickens sticky note made me laugh and wish it was that easy!

Pattern Giveaway : Bronzer and Teeth Whitening Nightmare

I am a big fan of Pattern Junkie, it's very funny plus she has a nice shop. I think this pattern is right up her alley, but I couldn't come up with a funny enough line to describe this bronzer and teeth whitening nightmare. Come up with a good line, write it in the comments and I'll send you the pattern. It's a size 12 dated 1977 so it's got the mandatory Charlie's Angel vibe. You can comment on that too if you are so inclined.
