How lucky am I !!

Back at the beginning of May, Sandra from The Surley Seamstress had a Double Barrel Giveaway and I couldn't believe my luck when I found out I had won the #2 Vintage for Grown Ups which arrived in the mail last week.

The pack contained:
• Burda magazine January 1975
• Butterick dress pattern, undated size 12 bust 87cm
• About 2 metres of retro print polyester satin

The Burda magazine was printed in West Germany but has an English supplement so the pattern instructions are in English.  There is an interesting trench coat pattern as well as some interesting skirts and dresses.  The the retro print polyester satin is brown and lemon and it would be wonderful lining for my rain coat.

Then Maria and I attended the Knitwit's Seasonal Fabric Showing at Artarmon and the following fabrics found their way to my home last week,

Left to right - Sandra Printed Knit, Waves texture knit in taupe, Adriana Printed Knit

Now to figure out how I am going to be home when it is not raining so I can get all this pre-washed and ready to play with.

You'll make the time! Great fabric choices!

You have been on a real winning streak lately and have picked up some real treasures. Sing out when you are ready for a trench sew-along. I can see one in my near future too, although I don't know whether I will be able to keep up with you.

What a lucky month for you! And the funny thing is I have that Butterick pattern and that fabric too - I'm pretty sure it's the same polysatin I picked up from Spotlight during a sale some time ago

Lucky girl. I must sign up for the Knitwit showing. I'd like some of the waves pleated knit.

Yay. You've got a few vintage patterns now. Mmm. I do like the idea of a trench coat sewalong too.

Very nice luck! Old Burda magazines are intriguing!

Such beautiful fabrics! I am curious to see what pattern you will choose to make your raincoat, will you make another Minoru or do you have another pattern in mind?
