Giveaway: 1940's Dress Pattern from Mrs. Depew Vintage

Wednesday, August 22, 2012


Before we begin with this giveaway, the winner of my Marilyn: Intimate Exposures giveaway is  Kim from Midwest Musings. Congratulations! Please email me with your mailing address.


      Today we have a really lovely giveaway from one of my sponsors, Mrs Depew Vintage
 Mrs. Depew Vintage specializes in vintage sewing, knitting and crochet patterns. Her amazing PDF patterns have become very popular in the vintage sewing community but she also offers a variety of paper patterns in her etsy shop. She just launched her brand new website, mrsdepew.com where you can see her full line of patterns, ebooks and get updates on her newest additions.


 I recently finished her 1950's one-piece bathing suit pattern and I used her 1950's beach bustier for my tiki dress!

                    My 1950's Bathing Suit                                          My Tiki Dress and Bolero


Today's giveaway was hand picked by Mrs. Depew

"McCall's 6971 from 1947 is a printed pattern for a Ladies' and Misses' Dress in a wearable size 42 with a 44" bust and 36" waist. The dress includes a front bow-tie, shoulder pads, an optional belt, and short, three-quarter or long sleeves. The envelope may show some wear and tear but this little gem has in-fact never been used and is still in its original factory folds."

  7. I don't think I can pick just one! Her 1930's French Night Gown is fabulous and I love her 1940's Turban Rosette Hat.

  8. I love ALL Mrs Depew's patterns, I'm just crazy for them. With an eye on my autumn/winter wardrobe, I love this blouse, I think it would look fantastic in a lamé for Christmas parties!

  9. I love this top: http://www.etsy.com/listing/89526191/vintage-sewing-pattern-ladies-1950s. It's the sort of thing that I love but forget to make because of all the distracting adorable dresses in my sewing queue.

    The giveaway pattern is actually my size--decent plus size patterns are so hard to come by from that era, I think I'd probably trace it off and pass it on.

  10. I would so love to make up this shorts pattern: http://mrsdepew.com/beach-patterns/1940s-shorts.html
    I have a sweet pink and white checked cotton in my stash that would make an awesome beach outfit. It's so hard choosing a favorite since all her patterns are wonderful.

  11. I'd love to try and make this suit! http://mrsdepew.com/beach-patterns/one-piece-bathing-suit.html You can never find any cute suits like these, that's why I don't currently have a swimsuit. I'd probably try a cute navy and white polka dot print. It just looks super cute no matter what!

  12. I love all her patterns, but the 1950s bathing suit is so lovely! I also have my eye on the 1930s ruffled tap pants pattern. I've also made up her 1940s tie-front blouse a couple of times and love it. So many favourites...

  16. The swimsuit and Tiki dress are darling!

    I'm a big fan of Mrs. Depew's lingerie patterns. I have yet to actually buy one, but I adore them all the same. The French Pin Up Bra and the 30's Negligee are at the top of my list!

  17. My favourite E-Book would be : Make do and Mend (http://mrsdepew.com/e-books/make-do-and-mend.html)

    Thanks for holding such a nice Giveaway, I love your blog and tutorials and read every post.
    I'm thinking about saving up a little money to buy all of her E-books and maybe some patterns. The 1947 Giveaway pattern looks so lovely, I adore 1940s dresses :).

  18. A wonderful giveaway with a perfect fit :)

    I would love to make the 1950's Style Cloche Cap 'cause it's very hard to find nice, old hats in Germany - so i could make it by myself.

    Greetings
