Bad for me but Great for you or the McCalls 6243 Giveaway!

First, the Bad for Me - I was getting ready to attempt to make a dress for my Valentines Day lunch with my hubby and after going through my patterns decided on McCalls 6243, imagine my horror when I discovered that in my haste during the BMV sale at Christmas time, I had purchased the wrong size !

Now to the Great for you:

I have decided to give the size AA (6,8,10,12) pattern to one of my lucky followers. All you need to do is leave a comment sharing a favorite sewing tip, trick or notion by 11:59 p.m. PST Sunday, February 27th. In case you need inspiration for entering, check out Kim's version here. I will use a random number generator to choose the winner on Monday, February 28th. Good Luck!


  1. This is a beautiful dress and would have made a perfect Valentine's day outfit.

    (I have the pattern so I won't enter the Giveaway.)

  2. That's a great pattern - I already have it though. Can't wait to see your valentine dress though.

  3. Hi, that's my size! My favorite notion is my stitch ripper. It's my best friend when it comes to sewing and undoing my mistakes. :)

  4. That is a lovely pattern.

    Thank you so much for wishing me congratulations on my pregnancy. I will try to get some baby bump pictures posted in the next week or so.
