Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

Edit: Giveaway closed! The lucky winner is Quilterbell! Thanks for playing along everyone!


It's here! Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day! 

The day each year I go around clicking and commenting like crazy trying to win cool stuff!  All that clicking has paid off since even though I haven't won a single thing, I have found some of my most awesome, favorite blogs through giveaway day, so I figured I would celebrate my 10th post (!) with a nice little giveaway of my own. Who says a two month old blog can't join in on the fun? 

This year they are extending it from just one day to a whole week of giveaways! After much deliberation I decided to offer up one of my new favorite patterns, 
The Oliver + S Badminton Dress. 
I have already made half a dozen different incarnations of this pattern and will be making many more. You can make a top, a skort, or a dress just from one pattern! I love getting a lot of bang for my pattern buck. ;)





I will give away one Badminton pattern in your choice of size 6m-4t or 5-12 to a commenter picked at random from this post.  I will ship anywhere in the world, so everyone is welcome!  



To enter, just leave a comment with your favorite summer dessert! Because, why not?!  The post will be open for comments until Friday the 25th until 5pm, And I will be drawing the winner at random by Sunday the 27th so leave a comment and maybe you will be the lucky winner! Make sure to leave an email address if you are a no reply blogger so I can contact you, if I don't hear from the winner within 48 hours I will pick a new one.
