March Giveaway: Sencha Been Gone

Hello, March! And Congratulations to Jeannie, who won the Oliver & S Bubble Dress pattern in the February giveaway. Please contact me with your address at my email on the sidebar, to claim your prize!

This month our giveaway is "Sencha" from Colette patterns. On their website "Sencha" is described as "a simple, versatile blouse perfect for creative embellishment, with deep tucks at the front and back waist for a loose but curvy shape great for tucking in."

All variations of the pattern are included. "Version 1 closes with back snaps, making it easiest to sew. Version 2 has neckline tucks and buttons up the back. Version 3 has a keyhole neckline with tie closure and buttons up the back."

The pattern is size O-18, and rated "beginner" so you can try out a Collete pattern even if you're new to sewing. Get your summer tops going, ladies!

To win "Sencha", leave a comment on this post. I'll pick a winner in the first week of April and send the pattern to you, where ever you might be in the world. Good luck!

Update: The winner has been announced and this giveaway is now closed. Thanks for your interest!

I would SO love to make the Sencha blouse! Althoug after reading your blog I always think about taking up knitting again - and maybe for something else than scarves...

Jess Carlson said...

Ooh, Sencha. I've been meaning to get my hands on this for ages, and have thus far failed.... I may have to follow you on Ravelry too now.

I've been thinking of buying this for ages! It's so pretty, I'm imagining it with the notch neckline and a loose silky bow. Maybe even polka dots!

Patti said...

Just started sewing again after a long hiatus of knitting, and found your blog through Tilly and the Buttons. The Collette patterns are great and I'd love to have the blouse.

Betty Boogie said...

Sencha is such a perfect looking blouse, I'd love to win it and I think I have a piece of silk hiding around here that would work perfectly!

Nettie said...

Curvy Kitty said...

Ooh how exciting. I've seen a few made versions of is blouse and they all look very inspiring!

Kitty Hawk said...

Hee hee - I'm supposed to be commenting on the Sencha blouse, which is such a lovely pattern, and a happy reminder that spring and summer really are supposed to be on their way (grey old Britain here) but I'm much too amused by the whimsy of sewn icream and butter yellow bee hive hats on your side bar! :)

mp said...

Leah Franqui said...

I love this pattern but haven't been able to buy it...I'd love to win!

Michele said...

So glad it's a "beginner" pattern and it still looks cute! It's not any warmer yet but I would love to start on a fun summery top to get through the rainy season ;)

jeannie said...

This is a really nice pattern. I love your color choices too. The polka dot lining in the light coat is great with the solid blouse.
Good luck to all the people who entered the contest - (me ,too ;0) )

Happy Weekend everyone.
