I noticed Debi's Sew Grateful week last year but I was still super new to blogging and hadn't figured a bunch of stuff out. This year I have grown in skill and confidence and most importantly found it in time to participate!
Since Debi is the McCall's queen I went through some of my unlisted shop inventory and stole this classy little number: McCall's 3604.
It's a simple little tunic or dress with a trouser pattern also included. I chose it for it's simplicity yet it has some quite unique details, like the funnel collar and the center front seaming which allows for interesting piecing or just a lovely V neckline. It's also a Bust 38 because I know how hard it can be for some of you more well endowed sewing ladies to find vintage in your size!
Anyways, I hope you enjoy it! Since only one can win this fabulousness as consolation, so we can all feel like winners, I'm offering 20% off all pattern orders in my shop through March 1st. Just use the code SEWGRATEFUL2014
I really am very very grateful and thankful for all the sewing friends I've made through blogging and all the new connections I've been making lately on twitter. The very name of my blog speaks about the isolation of where I live and I truly appreciate all of you who take the time to interact with me.
I'M SEW GRATEFUL!

I love the dress and all those details. :)
Looks so lovely, but too large for me, so i won't enter to let somebody who it will fit win it!
So glad you like it. I tried to pick something versatile but not boring!
Yeah, sorry. I guess I was just thinking of all the ladies who the larger size would enable and didn't think about how it would exclude us smaller girls. :)
I'm in for this giveaway! Thank you for choosing a larger sized pattern (I'm giving away some smaller ones on my blog...)
Yea! Glad you will be able to enjoy it! Good luck!
I love that funnel collar! These styles look like fantastic summer wear. Is it too early to be planning for summer clothes? ;)
I'm planning my summer clothes. There's some things that take some early planning if you want to actually wear them in the summer.
This is really lovely l Im normally more of a 50s girl but I think this pattern is really nice. The beauty of vintage patterns is that the rarity means that you are almost guaranteed to have a one off outfit.
I love the 50s style stuff too, but tunics are such a great everyday wearable basic that I love them too. Hurrah for vintage style!
