Make & Mend Contest – Ends June 11

June 6, 2011 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Shelley at the wonderful sewing blog, NewVintageLady: Vintage Sewing for the Stout Woman is holding a quick and dirty Make & Mend contest whose prize is this original pattern for a 1940s daytime frock. Make it up in a saucy lime polka-dotted cotton, then pack your hamper for a lazy summertime picnic of lemonade, hard-boiled eggs, pimento cheeses sandwiches, and oatmeal cookies, followed by an afternoon slumber under a weeping willow tree.
