Whimsy Couture Pattern Review and Giveaway

I love a good retro-feel pattern, so I was excited to try the Criss-Cross Tunic pattern by Whimsy Couture.


It is an excellent pattern - simple to print and piece together, and the instructions were easy to follow.  I love that the tunic is fully reversible.


The gingham/seahorse print tunic is for Cora and the flower/polka dot tunic is for Ruby and I was really pleased with the fit on both sizes.  I added some pockets to Ruby's shirt and she liked it so much it was worn two days in a row!  It looks cute on its own, or with a shirt underneath.


Whimsy Couture has a huge pattern selection, with everything from simple pieces like tunics, rompers and bloomers, to sweet ruffly dresses.  Something for everyone!  If you'd like to win a 3-pack of patterns of your choice:

  •  "like" Whimsy Couture on facebook, and then leave a comment on this post by midnight, Friday, May 25th.
  • One entry per person, please.
  • Contact information must be provided (if you do not have a public blog/profile, please leave your email address in your comment)
  • This giveaway is available to U.S. and international friends (yay!)
Can't wait to start sewing?  Use the code TAKEOFF50 for 50% off your order in the online store through Friday.

@ Anonymous - that is incorrect. You cannot use the "like" feature to automatically enter someone in a promotion, but it can be a condition of entry.

I am no longer a user of Facebook, so I can't enter this contest, but at least wanted to clarify.
