I am giving them all away to one lucky winner and am happy to post worldwide BUT there is a catch... I would like you to try and make one of them before December this year, as per the Vintage Pledge challenge. Or at least attempt to make one! You don't have to have a sewing blog to enter either, I should point out. You have 9 months to make something, so there is plenty of time.
Here are the patterns:
Style 1943 in Bust 34" - includes the floral embroidery transfer
Style 4055 - Bust 34"
Simplicity 8588 - Bust 32 1/2"
Simplicity 5756 - Size 6/6/10 (23", 24", 25" waist). Promises 'Overnight Success'! Looks like it would be easy to make with a forgiving fit
Simplicity 5852 - Size 10 (25 1/2" waist). This is for the shorts and trousers only. But what shorts and trousers! Side ponytail optional.
Simplicity 7457 - Bust 34". This is a real classic pattern I've seen a few bloggers make before.
Unfortunately it is marked on the back to say it's missing the collar and sleeve pieces [EDIT - all pieces are there!] but even so, the sleeveless top is sweet and classic
As these patterns have been provided by Alexa in the spirit of good will, please do not sell the patterns but passing them on to others via your blog or in a swap is fine. I haven't checked them for completeness (apart from comments noted about the last one) but they all appear to be cut and have instructions. I should add that Alexa didn't specify that the winner should try to use one pattern this year - that was my addition to help make sure they would be used and appreciated.
