New Mathilde Winner!

Sara didn’t get in touch with me during the last week, so… I generated a new random number to determine the new winner.

I’ve chosen from 87 entries (so, that’s the original 88, less Sara’s non-winning entry) so here’s my new winner of the Mathilde blouse and a bunch of lovely buttons!

Congratulations, Candace!  There’s an email on its way to you right now.

Candace also left a link to her own blog at Sewlseeker.  It looks like she’s waist-deep in muslins at the moment, so go have a look at her fitting processes!

Finally, thanks Karen, for coming up with the original giveaway, and to Jen for participating in the contest too and picking me as her winner (even if the promised buttons never did materialise). I hope Candace is as happy with the Mathilde pattern as I am!

I’m making a bit of fitting progress myself, which I’ll be posting about in the next couple of days.  I hope you’ll look out for that too!

I won, I won, I won!

Earlier this week, I won a giveaway at Made on the Couch.  I was so excited to see my crazy mug at the top of her blog that I did a massive, jumping, happy dance!

 I won the Mathilde blouse pattern! What a stroke of luck – I was already planning to buy the pattern, and then, as if by magic, it arrived in an email from a celebrity sewist!  It’s a gorgeous top, and the pattern has become really popular.  You can see lots of different versions in the maker’s gallery, and I hope to add one of my own soon!

There is the small matter of choosing a fabric… but here are a three that I quite like.  I would love to have a bit of reader input!  If you’re one of the (very few) followers of my new little blog, please leave a comment and help me choose from these lightweight cottons.
