Thurlow pattern giveaway

You'll be delighted to hear that giant leaps forward have been made on the Sewlution trousers front. Well, I've decided on the pattern (Colette Juniper) and bought the fabric (red gabardine), so by the end of the week I should be well on my way. I'm currently in deep discussion with myself over whether to make a muslin or not. Don't worry, I'm sure the 'why change the habits of a lifetime?' argument will wear me down before long.

Anyway, having decided on the Juniper pattern, I realised that the other trouser contender - the Sewaholic Thurlow - really isn't for me. I bought it in a frenzy after seeing Lauren's gorgeous denim pair, but I know I'll never use it. So you all know what this means don't you? GIVEAWAY!!!!!


If you fancy holding this wonderful pattern in your hot little paw, then all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  The giveaway is open worldwide and closes at midnight GMT on Sunday 31st March 2013. Please make sure you leave your email address if it's not linked to your blogger profile so I can contact you if you're a winner. Good luck everybody. x

  2. Oooh, I would love to win this. I have been meaning to make trousers for ages, and this would be the nudge I needed to get on with it.

  3. Eek, I'd love to try those trousers! You're right, Lauren's are gorgeous. Hopefully they'd fit over my hips without me having to alter them, shock horror! I'm excited to hear that you've made your mind for the trousers. I'm sure the Juniper's will look gorgeous, especially in Red! Are you going to make them less wide?

  4. Ooooh! These pants might make me come over to pants-land again... It would be really nice to try them!

  5. Red gaberdine slacks are an AMAZING idea! I'm sure they're going to be wonderful! I'd love to get my hands on your un-needed copy of the Thurlow trousers. I'll probably buy it eventually, but if I win it, it might motivate me to jump over the pants sewing edge.

  65. Hi Jane. I was so glad when I recently read that you too hate hate hate making muslins. I have not sewn in so long. Why you ask? Because the friend I am making a dress for insists on a muslin first. Think I am just going to make the dress so I can get on with more exciting projects. Anyway my email is UK561@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think we have all bought patterns just because they look so good on some one else. This looks like a great pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Ooh.. I have been wanting to start sewing some clothes for myself for a long time now and I think that pattern would make me start! What lovely shorts to be made (harlequin96@yahoo.co.uk just in case!)
