New Style and Pattern Giveaway!

Are you ready for some great summer sewing? We finished the Spin Skirt pattern just in time for summer and it's a winner when it comes to wearability. I've been wearing this skirt for several months while we finish with all the details for publishing, it's become my favorite go-to skirt for so many occasions. You might have seen me wearing it at the Puyallup Sew Expo.

Go to this page to see more photos of all three views:

With the "reveal" of this skirt pattern, I promised a giveaway. I also said that if I had 200 likes on FB, I would give away a second pattern (so you have more chances of winning!). To enter the giveaway, do one of these three things (or all three!)

1) be a follower and make a comment below.
2) "like" on FB and make a comment.
3) Get on, or be on the mailing list and make a comment at http://www.sewchicpatterns.com/contact.html
For still another chance:
4) Get a friend or friends to comment (your friend must mention you by name also) to get another entry.

To be chosen, you must make it easy for me to contact you by email through your submission methods. Otherwise, your submission will be voided and we will pick another entry. The deadline will be midnight, Wed. June 13. 

Good luck!

June 15 update: Winners Announcement! (Drum Roll Please!)
Congratulations go to Tanya Fletcher and Daina Priest! 

Okay girls, don't waste this fabulous luck of the random draw by letting this pattern sit in solitary confinement on the top of your sewing pile. It is meant to be used, worn and loved, and should you decide you don't have the time to put it to use, I have a long list of other gals who will gladly take your place. Speaking of that long list: I send a big hug and a thank you to all who entered. I really wish I could give a pattern away to each and all of you!  To Tanya and Daina: Please send photos! We want to enjoy your lovely creations too!
