    What a FANTASTIC book to own, the foundation of any sewers (sewist:) design skills. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

  9. says

    I would love to win this book, so I can participate in you “pattern making draft a long.” I started sewing about a year ago and of course started out with commercial patterns. It didn’t take me long to be irritated with them and want to find a better way. I have been very interested in making my own patterns for sometime and just didn’t know where to start. Hope I get the chance to join you.

  10. says

    I have been a follower of yours for a little while now. Love your blog. I have learned so much since following you.

  11. says

    I follow you on facebook. Thanks for the chance to win this book. I used to design my own when I was younger but got away from it. This sounds exciting!

  12. says

    Would love to have a copy of this book. I’m always looking for inspiration for new projects.

  13. says

    I would love to have a copy of this book. Even though I have been sewing for about 50 years I have just started making up my own patterns. Wish I had known about this years ago!

  14. says

    Looks like a terrific book….I would absolutely love a copy! :-). Now I just have to figure out how to the other links and posts to better my odds of winning! Kellene

  15. Maria says

    All signed up last week! Can’t wait until November so we can start the Draft-Along. Thanks so much Justine. This is going to be fun! And a big thanks to Cal, of course. Would love, love, love to win a copy of her book!

  16. Maria says

    I don’t have a Twitter account so can’t tweet but I’ve added your blog to my Feeds! Yes, I’m really trying to win!

  17. says

    Love, love love! the origami shirt sleeves… I am completely INTO details in clothing.. so tired of the mass produced blandness of retail stores! And how danged cute is that brown jumper with the turkey tail in your linky party! And I DESPERATELY NEED that pattern making book! Hope I win it, it would be the first thing I have EVER won in any sort of drawing giveaway!

  18. says

    Thanks you for hosting this giveaway. I’ve loved that book ever since I checked it out from the library! Now you may think I’m crazy, and I would like you on FB but I swore off FB until after the election is over. I just couldn’t stand the false facts and other’s crazy rants and opinions. And I’m sicking to my guns! I’ll take my chances with one entry.

  19. says

    Lots of great ideas here! Awesome giveaway too! I have taken up an interest in pattern-making recently. I even got a lesson from a local fashion designer… but it was in Spanish and mine is not so great (um, barely there?) so it was a bit overwhelming. I have been looking into books (in English!)to help me along but haven’t purchased any yet. Now I am thinking this one would be a great one!

  20. Angel says

    I have been tinkering with patterns but haven’t made my own. I would love to try it out if I won!

  21. says

    This book looks like a great way to get the creative juices flowing – Thanks for offering the giveaway!

    Thank for the giveaway. I am all about sewing my own clothes and this book will help me do more of that.

  27. Karen Gass says

    oh I would love to win this book! I’m learning pattern making now and it’s fascinating. But I’d sure like a book to help me, as most of what I’m doing is flying by the seat of my pants! πŸ™‚ thanks for offering it!
