Pretty, Pretty Giveaway...

I have really been a busy girl for the last month. For most of September I'm going to be visiting my mom in the U.S. so I've been working like crazy to complete several projects before I do.

Would you like to see what I've been up to besides creating my website?

The 3 biggest projects that I have completed are:
The digital restoration of an amazing millinery book from the 1920's, Individuality in Millinery.

Individuality in Millinery

A draped flapper gown, slip and cape pattern originally detailed in a 1920's Fashion Service magazine.

Draped Flapper Gown
 And last, but certainly not least, a Bra and Tap Pants Set reproduction pattern.


It may have been a busy month, but it was nice being surrounded by pretty, pretty things while I worked. I thought to celebrate the release of these 3 things, I would have a giveaway! (You all know how I love giveaways).



One lucky reader will win their choice of one of the 3 above patterns or books.
To enter to win, comment which is your favorite pattern or e-book on Mrsdepew.com.
For an added entry, you can do any of the following. Just leave me  comment to let me know which you've done:

1. Become a follower of A Few Threads Loose on Twitter, Google, or Bloglovin'.

2. Like A Few Threads Loose on Facebook.

3. Like Mrs. Depew Vintage on Facebook.

4. Mention this giveaway on your blog or share it on Facebook.


I'll announce the winner next Tuesday the 28th.

  1. Do I get a prize for being the first to comment? ;)

    I love the fran├žaise sundress, and the French Bra/Corselet Pattern. Of these three, I prefer the bra/tap pant set.

    And I already follow you on google, so does that count?

  4. Hi Anna, already a follower. I love the bathing suit pattern, that I am about to finish. I would love to get the last lingerie piece. Good job on the site!

  5. My favourite pattern on the site is the "Underwear and Lingerie" e-book. I'm missing the cute wrap-blouse, though.
    Unfortunately, I'm not in any of these social networks. I would "friend" you on mysewingcircle.com, though, if you joined there and where I've mentioned your give-away.
