Give Away Week, vintage skirts.

It may surprise some of you that I love the vintage styles and the history that goes along with it, a time before I knew. The reason I say surprise is that I don't sew alot of of vintage although I hoard plenty of patterns and clothes! The reason being is that long list of interests that I gave yesterday, I'm an active girl that need to be comfortable. The slightest pull or feeling self conscious I just cant wear it.

A era I do love to sew is the 70s,, I just love all of it! I love the smartness of the 60s too and the wholesome images of the land girls. I I love the Twiggy hair cut and it was one of the inspirations for getting my own hair cut. 

Today's give aways are two vintage skirts. The first a full polka dot number, with a waist of 30"

Secondly, is my favourite I'm only giving it away as I can not even do it up! So a lovely pencil skirt with a waist of 26". The pencil skirt is a little bit special as it it still has it's label on called Devonshire lady!

Again I will post anywhere in the world, please tell me your favourite era and which skirt you prefer and be a follower of my blog. Don't forget to leave an email address. Winners will be announced on Sunday.


  1. Ooh would love a chance to win the polka dot one please. It would fit my waist (unlike the pencil skirt, sadly!) and the colour and print are fab. Thanks for a great giveaway. x

  2. Both are so pretty...But sadly to say.. this waist of mine, will never see this tiny
    Good luck to the winner.
    Charolette, I so agree with you, I love all vintage, but I have to be comfortable ,doing my stuff. I love the 70's too ..
    Happy sewing and enjoying the things you do.

  3. Such gorgeous skirts, another great giveaway, not for me because I am too fat but I enjoyed reading about it.
    You will think this is odd but the era I prefer is 30s and early 40s, not so much to wear but to look at.....

  4. Oh, I'd love to be in the draw for the polka dot one, please! It's gorgeous! :-) (Sadly the other one is too small for me. *sigh*)
