A New Pattern Company–and a giveaway!


I’ve had the privilege of encouraging many young women to learn pattern drafting and start up their own businesses, creating beautiful patterns of their own. A young friend of mine has just launched her new business, Edelweiss Patterns, and she’s produced a lovely “Liesl” dress pattern perfect for stage productions, dancewear, and more. Katrina sent me a review copy, and I immediately asked if I could host a giveaway!

So here’s how to enter to win a copy of this beautiful pattern: Blog, tweet, or Facebook about Edelweiss, then pop back over here to leave a comment with a link to your post. If you don’t blog or tweet, feel free to email friends about Edelweiss patterns (you can also mention this giveaway), and CC contact (AT) sensibility.com for your entry. I will draw one winner through Random.org on Friday, January 7.

BONUS: If you purchase a copy of this new pattern and mention that you found out about it on sensibility.com, Katrina will enter you in a drawing for a lovely Regency fashion print purchased in England! That drawing will take place on the 14th of January, so be sure to mention sensibility.com if you place an order for your chance to win!

    What a pretty dress!

    We may look into this pattern:).

    This fall we read one of Maria Von Trapp’s books as a family(excellent!) and also had the privilege of hearing the Von Trapp children on stage. Having the clothing to go along with the story would be lots of fun.

    I posted on Facebook! I love Maria von Trapp’s books and the movie, so it’s wonderful that there’s finally a pattern out for Liesl’s dress

    I don’t use social networking and won’t spam my friends, but can a S&S gift certificate be used to buy this pattern? Probably not, but doesn’t hurt to ask.

      I’m sorry, but gift certificates for my store won’t work with another merchant. Edelweiss Patterns is its own company. :)

    I e-mailed friends and family. What a pretty design and worthy business. If I make this dress, I will keep it nice and not gad about in the rain with it as some people do . . .
