On the Eleventh Day of Christmas [NOW CLOSED]

Thanks for entering! This giveaway is now closed. Our final giveaway will open tomorrow morning at 6 am EST.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… eleven pipers piping, ten lords-a-leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking, seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying, five golden rings, four colly birds, three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree!

Twelve Days of Christmas

…and Rae gave to me a Geranium Dress Sewing Pattern!


Here’s your chance to win my most recently-released, brand-newest pattern!  This dress can be made in sizes from newborn to 5T.  It provides lots of options to vary your versions slightly without having to learn a whole new pattern each time you sew a little girl a dress!  You can make Geranium short or long, pleated or gathered, cap-sleeved or ruffle-sleeved.  And of course this pattern adapts to become a ‘Mini Washi’ to compliment the adult Washi Dress sewing pattern.


1. Geranium with dad, 2. Geranium in eyelet, 3. Geranium polkadots, 4. Geranium owls
All these beautiful photos were taken from the Geranium Sewing Pattern photo pool on Flickr.

Leave one comment on this post before 9 pm EST tonight for your chance to win this little dress sewing pattern. The winner will be randomly selected, contacted via email, and will receive a PDF copy of the Geranium Dress Sewing Pattern; all winners will be posted at the end of this series as well. Void where prohibited by law.

  1. Wow that dress is totally gorgeous – would love to make one with those cute ruffle sleves!

  2. Oh Rae! I really do love this pattern! I love patterns that can last for a very long time! It’s so hard to find sewing patterns for little babies!

  3. Ooh, I don’t have a girl (yet), but whenever I get one, would LOVE to make this darling dress for her.

    ’till then, I either will have a girl-day for my son (he’s only 15 months, he doesn’t care yet) or I’ll just spoil my friend’s daughters with this cute dress. <3

    Soo, yes please! <3

  4. With two lovely granddaughters age 5 and 8 months this pattern would certainly keep me busy. I made them both a couple of dresses last summer for the first time and the 5 year old thought she was a princess in hers. She would love this. Always used to sew for my daughter when she was small but only recently got back into it again.

  5. I’d love to receive this beautiful pattern to make for my 2 girls. I’ve never found a commercial pattern which meets my expectation when it comes to flutter sleeves and a simple bodice. Thank you for recreating my vision.

  6. What a great dress. I would use this for gifts throughout the year for all of my daughter’s friends.

  7. This is my favorite pattern of yours, it is sooooo cute! I’d sure love to win it. I have 3 granddaughters that it would be awesome for! Thank you for the chance to win it!

  8. such a cute dress!! love all the variations too. would look stinkin’ cute on my youngest daughter 😀

  12. Oh, I should start commenting on dresses. I don’t have any girls of my own, but have quite a few in my life who would love some cute dresses.
