The Pattern Pyramid has Arrived!

It’s here! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to have received this collection of traveling patterns. I’m even more excited to get to send it on its way to another lucky reader! But before I get ahead of myself, let me explain the history of the pattern pyramid. When Tea and Rainbows hosted her giveaway for the pattern pyramid I hoped, but had not expected, to win it. Winning the giveaway was more than a little surprising to me! I replied to her email with my address and promptly waited impatiently for it to arrive. (Luckily enough my Sew Weekly Pattern Swap arrived before, but more on that later!)

The pattern pyramid started with Karen in 2012, before winging its way to Sew Brunswick (Ooooh! A new blog for me to follow) in Australia. From there it went to Seersucker Sally in Philly before heading across to Tiffany in Seattle. She sent it to Kat in New Zealand, who decided it was time for it to see more sights and sent it to Debi in Scotland! From Scotland it was back to the USA and into the hands of Heather Lou of Closet Case Files and the famous Bombshell Swimsuit and from there onto Lucinda in Boston. And back to Seattle again, to Amy, and then off to Tea and Rainbows who just made a delightful Mathilde blouse. So who will it be off to next?

First, some pictures of the pattern pyramid and it’s content:

That pattern in the middle is lovely as well! It’s a McCall’s 5996 size 14 bust 34 inches.

I guess at some point I have to tell you which pattern I chose? If you were wondering which of the above it was I will have to disappoint you! I had a hard time choosing between three patterns. And those three were:

Which shall I take?

Which shall I take?

I loved the cool, casual comfort of the pattern on the left and the versatility of the one on the right. That center pattern just screamed at me that it had to be made and modified into many different dresses! And how could I not listen to such screaming? My choice if you haven’t already guessed it:

Mine!

Mine!

And when I say there are so many possibilities for different dresses out of this pattern; here is what I mean:

So many Possibilities!

So many Possibilities!

And finally my addition to the pattern pyramid:

I also added simplicity 1824 for those who might like to make a bag instead of clothes!

And finally the rules!

  • To enter you must have an active blog so that you can host your own giveaway and continue the Pattern Pyramid on its journey.
  • If you are the winner, you will pick one pattern to keep for yourself, then host your own giveaway, randomly select a winner, and mail the remaining patterns to them.  They will in turn continue the process.
  • If you are the winner, Karen would love it if you could make a small contribution to The Brooke. This is a charity close to the heart of Catherine, who so generously provided the original patterns and you’ll be helping animals!

If you would love the chance to keep these patterns moving along leave me a comment by 5:00 PM CDT. Edit: 5:00 PM CDT on 22nd of August! I will randomly select one person and off the patterns will go!

Happy commenting and may the odds be ever in your favor!
