The Original Pattern Pyramid comes to town!

I was lucky enough to be the next stop on the Pattern Pyramid!  This is the original one started by Karen from Did You Make That when she was generously gifted a trove of vintage patterns from one of her blog readers.

You can read the original post here.

I got these patterns when Marie from A Stitching Odyssey hosted it recently and it's a great stash!

There are vintage dresses galore:




Vintage separates:


A host of 1970s goodness:


Some 1980s and modern patterns:



We get to choose a pattern to keep.  I chose this gorgeous 1950s pattern which Marie added.  I fell in love with the neckline, and although I might have to do a bit of grading down, it'll be worth it!

Damn you Blogger for the sideways pic!


In return we have to add a pattern.  As there was a bit of a shortage of mid-sized patterns in there, I added these 3 from my stash:



If you would like to be the next stop for the Pattern Pyramid and have the chance to choose one of these for yourself, here are the rules:

  • Any blogger with an active blog can enter.  You can live anywhere - these patterns are pretty well-travelled!
  • You can keep one pattern for yourself, and then you have to host your own giveaway!  You must be happy to post internationally if you win.
  • Most bloggers have added more patterns to the mix to keep it fresh (but it's not essential)
Want to be part of it?

Comment below by 12th March (midnight GMT), I'll draw a winner by random number and the patterns could be winging their way to you!
