Vintage Pattern Giveaway

First off welcome if your popping over here from SewmamaSew. I'd love it if you took a bit of time to look around. I could have just as easily called this the my baby is getting bigger giveaway as I'm giving away 2 vintage patterns that I made for my daughter when she was littler but can't make for her anymore.
Here are front and back action shots of pattern 1.  It is a size 2 but as you can see here very short.  There is also a romper pattern included but I never made that because putting a romper under a pinafore seemed like it would make diapers an major issue.

Here is a model shot of the dress I made from pattern 2.  It remains to date one of my favorite dresses that I have ever made Emily.  It is a size 1 but she was able to wear it for 2 summers.  Truthfully she would still be able to wear it if the skirt was longer.  I have to many other things I want to try to make another though.

Here are the patterns themselves.  They are vintage so you will have to treat them gently but they are in good condition and the directions for both are rather good.
So if you want to enter just leave a comment on this post telling me which pattern you would like and why. If you would like a shot at both tell me that too but please only comment once. The contest will be open until May 25th. On the 26th I'll get my husband to do a random number generator to pick a winner. Please remember to put your email in the post so that I can contact you. I'm only shipping within the US. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to look around and give your opinions on other posts if you would like.

  7. Oh! She is adorable! I love both these patterns.
    My daughter and I were estranged for 9 years, and she moved up here where I am 2 years ago, and now I have a grandbaby! A little girl! I'd love to win either of these for her... This post is for #1, as I think it would be good. Thank you for doing this.

  12. Nice giveaway! Both are beautiful but I would prefer the second one (2985). My little one is only 5 mo so I would have plenty of time to make her a dress from the pattern. Thank you for the giveaway!

  20. I would love either although the first one looks a bit more my speed. I haven't made any outfits for my little girl yet because I didn't know her gender until she was born (she is 8 wks old now).
