Sew Twists and Ties: Designer Stitch Giveaway

Hurrah! Today I have the first of several Sew Twists and Ties giveaways!



Ann from Designer Stitch generously offered to give away two of her lovely and professionally drafted PDF sewing patterns for Sew Twists and Ties!


The Gemma Twist Tops pattern is a two-for-one deal! It's really cool because it has options to sew the elegant twist on the front or the back of the blouse, depending on your preference.


The Jenny Wrap Dress pattern is another lovely design, and it's the one that first turned me on to Designer Stitch. I love the sarong-style wrap around the hips of this dress, as well as the all-in-one facing at the neckline. Swoon! What lovely details! You can read more about my version of the Jenny Dress here.


Enter below to win a copies of the Designer Stitch Jenny and Gemma PDF sewing patterns so you can sew them up for Sew Twists and Ties!

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed and the winner has been notified. Thank you for your entries!

  11. Loving the origami kind of garments - so fascinating - the way that they transmogrify from their original state of flatness into their seemingly impossible and sometimes unimaginable 3d being. I spent some time reading up on the Jenny dress, whilst also considering the Hattie and Meridien: I can only dream of making this trifecta :) The Gemma twist top has that deceptively simple yet tricky Escherian thing going on: also enticing. Thanks for highlighting/reminding-us-of them both :)

  37. Bonjour,
    Merci pour ce cadeau. Je commencerai par le top car je porte souvent un pantalon mais la robe me tente.
    Je suis votre blog depuis un moment et j'ai découvert plein de designers.
    Bisous de France.
