Friday Funday and being on the Disabled Sewer List

Hello Ladies!  It is Friday Funday again!!!  

But before we get to the merriment, I am sad to say that I am on the disabled sewer list.  I have managed to injure my right hand and wrist, with no idea what I did.  I just woke up one morning and my wrist was in terrible condition.  Couldn't move it, wiggling my fingers caused excruciating pain.  So for now I am stuck with an ugly black brace on my wrist that pushes my hand back in to a neutral position.  No sewing for 3 weeks, no cutting out fabric or patterns for 3 weeks, no crochet for 3 weeks.  I am gonna be honest with you ladies.  It sucks!  Typing isn't exactly a breeze either.  I digress.

On to the good stuff.  This week for our Friday Funday pattern giveaway, we have this beautiful vintage Vogue Pattern:

It is described as a dress, but it is really a two piece set.  I LOVE the tie waist and the neckline.

Pattern is described as:

Vintage Vogue 5358 two piece dress. Easy fitting overblouse joins shaped hip band which has optional bow trimming. Deep, scooped back neckline or high neckline finished with collar knotted at center back. Flared skirt has released pleats at sides.

Size 18  Bust 38  Waist 30  Hip 40

Envelope has wear at all four corners and has tears at each of the top corners.

Pattern is uncut and factory folded.

To enter this week, please leave a comment below about how you like to use vintage patterns.  Make sure that if your profile doesn't link back to an email address that you leave your email so that I contact you if you are the winner.

Good Luck Ladies!!!


  1. Oh no!! How terrible!! Sending good vibes your way for a quick recovery. Thanks again for the pattern! :)

    1. You are welcome Tanya! Seems no one wants this one, because it has had plenty of views but no you may just end up with a second pattern.

  2. Sorry to hear about your wrist! Wish you a steady recovery!
    Good excuse to catch up on some tv series or reading instead?
    I love the tops of this pattern, so I would love to throw my name into the hat.

    1. Sorry Canal! Tanya has already won this pattern, but I will be posting a new pattern giveaway here shortly, so check back every Friday.
