Today marks two years since my first post on this blog. The past year was a busy one: a pattern from my collection was transformed into a new Vintage Vogue, and I participated in not one but two Toronto meetups. Much of the year was spent cameraless, so I have a growing queue of projects to photograph, including a 1920s bathing suit.

To celebrate my blogiversary I’m throwing a giveaway: one lucky reader will win their choice of 4 instant downloads from PatternVault’s Etsy shop. I’m in the process of adding more e-booklets reproducing rare, vintage sewing ephemera from companies like Vogue and the Paris Pattern Company.

To enter, just leave a comment below. The giveaway closes Sunday, July 14th at midnight EDT. The winner will be chosen at random and announced this Monday, July 15th.
