{whimsy couture} + giveaway

Calling all seamstresses! {or soon-to-be-seamstresses, want-to-be-seamstresses, or never-thought-of-trying-to-sew-anything-people} I've got the shop for you! Whimsy Couture is the source for patterns for girls' clothes (and some mommy clothes too!) & accessories. Denise, the shop owner/designer, is the lovely lady behind it all :) Each pattern comes with a tutorial, so you are walked through each step. The patterns/tutorials are emailed to you (or can be mailed for an additional s/h fee).

Remember, Whimsy Couture sells patterns. So, you can make your own boutique clothing at home! For the price of one, inexpensive pattern/tutorial - you can make tons of chic garments for your little cutie! And - Denise gives you the green-light to use her patterns to make items for your own etsy/eBay store!

Each tutorial offers instructions on how to make each piece in a wide range of sizes. So, make one for big sister & a matching one for little sister :)


We can not end a post without a giveaway, right?! :) Well... Denise has offered to giveaway 3 patterns! {you pick!} So, there will be 3 winners!
