MMMay'14 Vintage Pattern Giveaway with The Polished Button

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR ENTERING***



The weekly #MMMay14 celebration giveaway continue.... Like last week's giveaway, this one is open to everyone, not just participants of the challenge.

So we are half way through MMMay'14 now, have you discovered some holes in your self-stitched wardrobe that could be filled with the help of a lovely vintage sewing pattern? Even if you're not taking part in the challenge this year, which pattern would help you make something special that perhaps you'd like to show off during MMMay'15? ;-)


The Prize:

Your choice of vintage sewing pattern from the amazing inventory at The Polished Button. What's not to like about that?!


How to Enter:

Go to the Patterns section of The Polished Button's website and find a pattern you'd like to own. Leave a comment on this post including the link to the pattern you've chosen, why you've chosen it (because I'm nosey!) plus your email address if I can't find it within a couple of mouse clicks. Email addresses will only be used to contact you if you are the lucky winner of this giveaway. Leave your comment before midnight GMT on Thursday 22nd May. The following day I'll pick a winner by random number generator and contact the lucky individual who will receive their pattern completely free of charge.

Hmmm perhaps it's because of Mad Men, but I've really been feeling the 70s lately. I think I'd go with this one: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-simplicity-dress-top-pattern-size-16-18/

Ooh, I'd totally go with http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-simplicity-8907-dress-pattern-size-18-40-bust/ because the version with the collar is totally my style! Love the seams on the front, too.

I love the simplicity of it :D

Helen McIntosh said...

So many lovely things! As tempted as I am by Butterick 5987 because IT'S A CAPE! I think it might be more practical to go with Style 2898 - I've never made anything with raglan sleeves before - now might be the time to start!

Macska said...

Oooh, I'd choose this one: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-dress-pattern-size-12-34-bust/

I love how it's 1970's-does-1940's with those shoulder yokes. :-)

Miriam said...

wow they have a lot of choice on there. I've gone for a trousers pattern because I think I need to get back into making separates.... this might help me!

I love peter pan collars, so I would choose the Economy Design one shown in your post: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1950s-economy-design-e29-dress-pattern-size-32-bust/

Thanks for the giveaway! youngseamstress[at]gmail[dot]com

Lady Stitcher said...

Great giveaway! I'd pick McCall's 3579 wrap top pattern because if there's one thing I've learned already from MMM'14 it's that I don't sew nearly enough tops! http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-mccalls-3579-wrap-top-skirt-pattern-size-10-32-12-bust/

I really like this dress: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-style-1875-dress-pattern-size-12-34-bust/
I would have to do some adjusting, but I think I could manage. If not, my younger sister wouldn't mind some new clothes!

How cute is this 1970's pattern? And in my size!

Jana said...

I’m most intrigued by Style 4552. The reason is the jacket’s “panelled front with pockets”, which looks like a really interesting detail that I’d love to study!
(My e-mail address is on my blog’s about page.)

Melwyk said...

She has Colette patterns too? Wow! I'd pick the Macaron because I've always thought it is such a cute dress, and I really need to learn how to sew a yoke like that.

Anja Kuhn said...

I'll take my chance because I fall in love with this one http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-the-people-277-dress-pattern-size-42-bust/

I'd choose this one: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/colette-patterns-jasmine-blouse-multi-size-0-18/

I haven't taken part in MMM14 but am taking a long hard look at what I have in my me made wardrobe thinking that I should join in MMM15 - I need more everyday pieces and I think this blouse would be great for that.

I really love both this one - http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1950s-simplicity-2963-dress-pattern-size-16-36-bust/
I love the blousey top and fitted skirt combo - so chic for work and I've admired many vintage dresses in this style.

cucicucicoo: ecological living said...

I'm realizing that I don't have much in the way of between season me-mades and no one-piece dresses at all because of the years I've spent breastfeeding until recently. I just love 70s styles and there are some really amazing patterns in the shop, but if I had to choose just one it would be: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-simplicity-6708-hooded-dress-top-skirt-pattern-size-12-34-bust/

I adore 50's fashion and vibe. Everyone had much more class back then. Men were gentlemen and women knew how to look sexy and sophisticated at the same time.

As I went through the patterns, I fell in love with this http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/retro-butterick-b4790-1950s-dress-pattern/

I'd go for http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1960s-simplicity-4980-dress-pattern-size-16-36-bust/

I'd love to make a shirtwaister and this would be perfect. In my size too.

How difficult to choose just one, but if I had to pick it would be this http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-style-3992-dress-pattern-size-10-32-12-bust/

Purely because I can really imagine myself wearing this in summer :-)

Thank you so much for the competition and fingers crossed!

Hellooooo. Vintage Vogue V8851,
http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-vogue-v8851-dress-pattern/ Unlike most vintage patterns, this is SEMI fitted! Less constrictive means I'll wear it. And I love the yoke detailing. Shirt-dresses are so useful & versatile & the design detailing on this one is quite smart. BTW, thanks for MMMay, its great!

HoffiCoffi said...

I would go for http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-simplicity-9576-dress-pattern-size-16-38-bust/
because it doesn't look like a dress! I am intrigued!

Rachelle said...

http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/eliza-m-button-front-shorts-1950s-style-multi-size-10-18/ is my favourite; I love shorts for summer and the styling of these ones is so flattering.

Fabric Tragic said...

What a fab collection of patterns. I love the 70's Style pattern 3503 - my favourite vintage pattern is. style one, and I love the bow necktie. Thanks for the competition!

Emma said...

Gosh! So many great patterns. My fave http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1950s-blackmore-9292-dress-jacket-pattern-36-bust/
Classic style - my favourite silhouette

Sewing Princess said...

So hard to choose! It has to be a dress of course. A shirdress is something i'd like to make. I already have fabric reserved for it.
http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-maudella-5960-dress-pattern-size-10-32-12-bust/
or this dress because I love the design http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-simplicity-5789-dress-pattern-size-14-36-bust/

Jen said...

Oooh I really like the look of the Vintage 1970′s Style 3992 - http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-style-3992-dress-pattern-size-10-32-12-bust/. I think the sleeves and tie-back thingies appeal.

char said...

I'd go with this one because it's so pretty and I don't really have any sleeved dress patterns - http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-maudella-5960-dress-pattern-size-10-32-12-bust/

Wool Bothy said...

Oh it has to be this one: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-simplicity-9500-hooded-dress-top-trousers-pattern-size-12-34-bust/
It reminds me so much of my miss-spent youth and just maybe it'll help me miss-spend my retirement too. As well that, how much more practical could you get, for someone who lives in a cold place, totally unable to ever wear pretty little cotton frocks?
Love from woolbothy@gmail.com

Tina C. said...

I can't resist a good shirtwaist dress and the vintage 1950's economy pattern: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1950s-economy-design-e29-dress-pattern-size-32-bust/

I especially love the peter pan collar on the right.

Boyer Sisters said...

We can only choose one?!? Ummm... I would have to choose between these three: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1950s-economy-design-e29-dress-pattern-size-32-bust/

http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-maudella-5960-dress-pattern-size-10-32-12-bust/

I like the them both because they are in my size (no brainer ;D) and they are just so practical and fabulous! Plus I like the fact that the fifties pattern is for both a dress AND a skirt and blouse! COOL!

I like this pattern very much: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-style-3503-dress-pattern-size-10-bust-32-12/
It would look great with a cardigan or a jacket, and good in the summer and the winter.
thank you for the giveaway!

The shape is so flattering and feminine.

Eliza Brown said...

For me it would definitely be the McCalls 6818 Muu Muu. How cute is that pattern. Perfect for summer. I can see me sitting in a beer garden looking resplendent in one of those outfits lol.

I'd pick this one: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1970s-vogue-dress-pattern-size-14-36-bust/
I love the style of it, it'd be great on my figure, and I can see this having year round versatility.

Abby Rowswell said...

I really love this pattern. http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/retro-butterick-b5880-1950s-dress-pattern/

It's an interesting twist on a classic shift dress, and I think the ruffly bit on the side would work up well in an interesting print

clair said...

I love this pattern: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1960s-mccalls-7508-dress-jacket-pattern-size-18-38-bust/
I love the idea of an endless mix of fabrics for this lovely dress!

I've been eyeing this pattern for years, it's so pretty, I love it!
I don't think it will fill a gap, but it will make me happy :)

Andrea said...

I have just bought a knit fabric while on holiday. I saw it and knew it would be perfect for a wrap dress. I am now looking at different patterns and keep getting back to the Tiramisu dress. This would be fantastic: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/cake-patterns-tiramisu-dress-pattern-1950s-style-multi-size-30-50-bust/

The 1940s pattern caught my eye.

Sorry this http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/colette-patterns-hawthorn-dress-1950s-style-multi-size-0-18/ colette hawthorne for me please

Hariluna said...

I thought I'd posted but its disappeared. Sorry if I'm doubling up. I love Colette's 1940s style Parfait http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/colette-patterns-parfait-1940s-style-dress-multi-size-0-18/. It has that gorgeous vintage vibe but with the fit and sewing how-to support of a modern indie pattern :)

Ali said...

I'd go for this one since I realised that almost every dress that I've admired is invariably very similar to this pattern..

http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/colette-patterns-rooibos-dress-multi-size-0-18/

I saw so many ladies made Laurel Dress, so I'd love to give it a try :) Thank you so much for the giveaway!

While I'm not sure if I could wear this http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1960s-mccalls-8811-bikini-beach-coat-pattern-size-18-bust-38/ in May (there is still ice on the lake) I'd muslin it a few times in a knit to make knickers, and those would be worn.
Thank you for hosting such a great giveaway!

So many lovely patterns! I'd select this one: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-vogue-v2961-dress-pattern/
I can be contacted on hahamissymoo at gmail dot com.

Ellen said...

Definitely this one!
http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/retro-butterick-b5747-dress-pattern/

Because it is the most beautiful dress on the world. I would even make in white to wear it on my wedding day.

haaksterretje@hotmail.com

I have to say: i'm from belgium and i understand if you don't send it there because it is rather expensive.

Kendra said...

What a fabulous collection of patterns over there! I would go for this one: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/retro-butterick-b5813-dress-pattern/

It looks perfect for work, and the princess seams would make fitting easier.

Jess Z said...

I would pick the child's playsuit (http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-1980s-mccalls-6944-childs-playsuit-pattern-size-1/), so that I can finally make my daughter some rompers! This year's to-do list is make myself pants/shorts and summer play clothes for my daughter. coralbunnyandlo [at] gmail [dot] com

BLD in MT said...

I sure had fun looking at all the different patterns. I've been making several versions of this one dress pattern I really like, but all this eye candy has me thinking maybe I should try a new pattern. It was hard to choose just one to pick for the giveaway, but I think I would go with the 50's inspired Crepe dress: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/colette-patterns-crepe-dress-multi-size-0-18/, mostly because it looks super comfy and I like wrap dresses for their lack of zipper, hooks, and buttons to install. But this 1940's number is hot on its tail: http://www.thepolishedbutton.co.uk/shop/vintage-vogue-v8811-dress-pattern/

Thanks for the opportunity! bethany(dot)dopp(at)yahoo(dot)com
