A Winner and Some Pretty Pictures

First the winner of the Vogue 8118 pattern is:


Graca - please leave your email in the comments section so I can get your pattern out to you on Monday! (Sorry this posted prior to me inserting the winner - for some reason I thought I'd scheduled this for 2:30pm!)

Now here are the pretty pictures I promised ~

When I made my first Butterick 5678 I was so excited about finishing it that I put a review up on the blog with the shirt on Lulu, my dressform. I knew it was going to be at least two weeks before I had pictures taken and I just needed to share it.  So the sleeve alterations are in this post and more construction information is in the review post.

I'm wearing it on a Sunday afternoon at the kiddie park in my complex with the grandchildren which will explain some of these poses!







...and a day at the park with grandchildren is not complete without a picture or two of them...




There will be more versions of the Butterick 5678 and of course more pictures of the grandchildren!

...as always more later!

  2. Your shirt looks really nice on you. A long sleeve button shirt will definitely help with the east coast winters.

  4. Love these photos - especially the one of you on the playground steps! I know your grandchildren love you going to the playground with them:) You are giving me some new style ideas - I really like the long shirt as jacket look.

  8. Oh, oh. I love the pattern, I really do. But I shouldn't have thrown my comment in the comment list because I live in Canada. I'm so sorry, I know you said only US entries, but I wasn't thinking when I was typing the compliment on your top. I totally understand if you want to draw another name.

    2. I might need to upgrade my eyewear prescription because I couldn't find it. My email is grrracar (at) gmail (dot) com. Are you sure? I feel bad that I you're sending it to Canada. I'm going to have to make this up to you. Thank you for your generosity and hosting the give-away. I'm excited to sew this up, I hope to make you proud.
