My apologies this didn’t go up on Friday as promised. The day got away from me, as some days are apt to do, and before I knew it, it was late at night and I decided to just wait until the next week to post this giveaway. Hope it was worth the wait!
I find myself using words that I hear very rarely out of the mouths of people my age: things like “spiffy”, “snazzy”, etc. Yes, I really do. I think snazzy will always be my favorite though, becuase I remember my grandfather (who passed away years ago) saying it regularly to refer to things he thought were neat or eye catching. It’s far superior to “cool”, in my not-so-humble opinion.
But enough about words! What is this “snazzy giveaway”? Remember those patterns I showed you a sneak peek of a little while ago? Well, I’m going to be giving them away individually over the course of the autumn, so here is the first one. There is nothing quite like spreading a little vintage pattern love, especially since I hear so many of you struggle with finding them locally! This giveaway is for Simplicity #5234, dated 1963 on the envelope. I’ve gone through it and counted all the pieces, and the instructions are present. The envelope is a bit crinkled, but everything is there. It’s a vintage size 16, which translates to a 34″ bust, 26″ waist, and 36″ hip. (But don’t let sizing stop you!) I think this would make a lovely ensemble for either the autumn or spring, depending on what season you’re preparing for!
