Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day TWO 2011


Good morning and thanks for joining me for day TWO of my Sew Mama Sew giveaways this week! I don't know about you but I am ridiculously excited about all the amazing things being given away - make sure you take time to check out all the other great giveaways - I think people will be continuing to add them add week. I know I'm crossing fingers AND toes on a couple of them!


So the book I'm giving away today is Flirt Skirts : Learn how to sew, customize and style your very own skirts by Patti Gilstrap and Seryn Potter.

This book gives you 3 basic templates you can enlarge and print and then 20 different ways to change and design those basic skirts. If you're feeling adventurous and have the time to print the patterns this is the book for you!

I realized that I'm pretty happy with my Versatile Wrap Skirts from Toni Coward over at Make it Perfect and now that I'm staying at home with the kiddo I don't have the need or opportunity to wear fancier stuff. But those wrap skirts, man do I LOVE THOSE! You can find that pattern on etsy or at Pink Chalk Fabrics.

So for today's comment if you have a favorite skirt pattern please share it! Good luck and please join me again tomorrow for another great sewing book giveaway :-)

Comments on all giveaways will be open until Friday night at 8pm EST - International commenters always welcome.

  2. I love making skirts! My favorite thus far was based on Dana (of Made)'s tutorial, though it's also been done by lots of folks. It was a simple, gathered skirt with a shirred waist. Now that I'm pregnant, it fits wonderfully and is oh-so-comfortable. Hooray!

  25. I can never seem to get down the sewing list far enough to get to something for ME. I just made a purse for myself the other week, and it was the first thing in.. a long time. So I'd love to discover a favorite pattern for me.
