Monthly Giveaway :: The Elegant Lady's Closet ePattern

Greetings, dear sisters in Christ Jesus! We feel so blessed to once again sponsor a giveaway for you all this month... especially as we know you will absolutely love the prize! *smile*

This month we will be giving the 'Elegant Ladies Closet' ePattern, which was so graciously donated by Mrs. Chancey from Sensibility Patterns! It is truly lovely.... 

{Taken from Sensibility.com}
"Here is a pattern with something for everyone! I took some designs I’d played around with years ago and turned them into a “mega pattern.” All of the pieces are totally correct for the time period and can be mixed and matched to create an entire wardrobe of gowns! You’ll be able to create day gowns, half-robes, visiting gowns, and evening gowns with ease. Best of all, this pattern is ideal for expectant and nursing mothers, since the drawstring gown accommodates a tummy, and both gowns are nursing-friendly!  Important: The gowns in this pattern were designed to be worn over period underpinnings and will not fit correctly over modern undergarments. Please make sure you have your proper underpinnings before you use this pattern!"
  • Sizes 6-26DD all included.
  • Illustrated instructions make construction easy!
  • Options for long sleeves, fitted elbow-length sleeves, and short puffed sleeves, as well as two different bodice styles.
  • Bonus: Includes authentic embroidery motifs as well as patterns for two “ridicules” (Regency era purses)!
  • Click here for the Elegant Lady’s Closet yardage chart
  • You will receive the instant download as an ePattern in PDF format!
Below are some pictures of finished gowns, made from this pattern ~




Wouldn't you be thrilled to win this lovely pattern?
