When your view at work looks like this:
You need a little something to improve your day. How about a giveaway?
I received the Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt pattern just after it was released as a thank you for being a pattern tester. Now, I thought twice about giving this away, since Tasia's company is a small one. Should I give this away and deprive her of a sale?
Then I realized I can act like a Sewaholic pusher: I'll let you have this one for free, you'll become instantly addicted, and you'll have to search out more of her patterns here. If this Hollyburn is your gateway pattern, I suggest the Pendrell for a slightly stronger hit. Then when you've tired of the light stuff, you can move on to the Thurlow. Laboured metaphors aside, I know you'll like this one and then buy more.
I made mine from a stiff cotton shwe shwe, but other testers have used everything from wool to lightweight blends. I think it would work well in pretty much any apparel fabric, and probably even in quilting cotton.
Leave a comment below if you'd like to win the pattern, and tell me what fabric you'd use. I'll keep this giveaway open to comments until 11:59pm, next Monday (January 14th, 2013). I'll ship anywhere, but I'm going to send it surface mail, so please don't expect it to arrive on January 15th!
