What makes this trendy? Why, the waved pleats, of course (though the pattern allows you to stick with traditional flat pleats too).
And since you’re making this yourself, you can make your Blank Slate any color you want! I am obviously partial to aquamarine.
Remember the giveaways this week! I am giving away a copy of EACH pattern I show this week, AND a grand prize of the ENTIRE Holiday Collection. Since these are PDF patterns, this giveaway is also open to international readers. To enter you must be a follower via Google Friend Connect, RSS, email, or by liking Melly Sews on Facebook. See the buttons at the top of my blog and my right sidebar for your subscription options. You MUST comment for EACH entry, AND LEAVE YOUR EMAIL in each entry (mellysews(at)gmail.com format is fine) so I can contact you if you win! EACH entry enters you to win the pattern you are commenting on AND is an entry for the collection giveaway. • Mandatory Entry: Comment on the pattern post, letting me know how you follow. • Extra Entry 1: Like Blank Slate Patterns on Facebook • Extra Entry 2: Share the pattern link on your Facebook page • Extra Entry 3: Pin the pattern picture (the first one with the title on it) on Pinterest If you missed a post (like yesterday’s Tuxedo Pants), go back and comment for more entries! Giveaway will end on Friday, November 9, 2012. I will draw winners via random.org and announce the winners that day.
This giveaway is now closed, winners were announced November 9th.
Don’t forget that from now through Sunday, November 11, you can get 20% off of any of the patterns I carry on my site (so not the Hipster Henley or the Cool Cardigan since they are only on Lil Blue Boo right now), including the Blank Slate Basics Collection and the Blank Slates (for Girls!) collections, and any of the holiday patterns once they launch. And by the way, I will be retiring the collections at the end of this year. The individual patterns will still be for sale, but they will not be sold as a collection in 2013. So if you’ve been waiting to pick up one of the collections, now is the time to do it! Use the code 20OFF when you check out to get your discount.
