Wow. Whodathunkit? When I started this little blog, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
So to celebrate 1 year down, I’m giving away a 2m x 0.98m piece of the lace I used to make my Ladies who Lunch dress. White lace not your thing? It’s 100% cotton so you could totally have a lot of fun with some dye. It’s already been ‘pre-shrunk’ by me, but the care label states a cold hand wash is ideal. This sold out on Tessuti’s online shop soon after it was listed, so I know it must be covetable!

I’m happy to post anywhere in the world – and I’ll announce the winner on the 19th of November. Until then, you can leave a comment to go into the draw, which will close at 11:59pm on Sunday November the 18th, Eastern Standard Time (Melbourne). Don’t forget that I live in the future – so check out the World Clock to see what date/time that equates to for you.
Happy Sewing everyone – here’s to another year in my extended quest to have a battalion load of sewing skills and a self-made wardrobe I can totally get excited about :)
This lace is lovely! And could be used for so many things
This lace is beautiful and I love that it's 100% cotton. Count me in please.
The lace and beautiful and I would love to use it to make something!
That's some gorgeous lace, and I'd love to make something with it … a skirt, maybe? I have to admit, I would probably dye it, as I can't be trusted to wear white and not find the nearest bottle of red wine to pour all over me, lol.
Yay, a year of blogging! I, for one, have so appreciated seeing your makes and your meticulous approach to sewing. You challenge me to be a better seamstress! I've got plenty of stash fabric to work through still, so I won't enter the giveaway, but just wanted to say congratulations on reaching this milestone!
Congrats on one year! I loved your lace dress and i'd love to make something for myself in the fabric! I'm envisioning putting black fabric behind it. I love a good black and white combo. Count me in =)
Yay for a year and more to come!Also, I'd absolutely LOVE TO WIN THIS LACE! It's amazing and I've just bought some kelly green fabric dye with hopes of finding some lace to use it on. This lace would be perfect. :)
It's like you looked in my brain and heard me say "I WANT WHITE COTTON LACE!" while reading your last post. It's lovely, I would love to try to do something cool with it while trying not to feel intimidated by how wonderfully your red & white race frock turned out…. And congrats on your first blogiversary! I let mine go by with nary a peep!
This is so exciting! After your last post I immediately looked at the online store and was so bummed it had sold out. Count me in please, and happy blogiversary!
Happy anniversary! Would love a go at that lace…
Ooh, pretty! Congrats on your blogiversary!

I'm up for some unique white lace! Happy blogiversary.
Pick me! Pick me! Miss 14 has been scouring fabric shops/op-shops/anywhere really looking for something like that for a frock she has in mind. We were disappointed we missed out at Tessuti's :(Your Ladies Who Lunch dress is fabulous.
I don't need the lace, but many congrats on your first blogiversary!!
I was eagerly awaiting the unveiling of your Spring Racing Frock, and it didn't disappoint. It was stylish, elegant, and very appropriate for the races. It made me start thinking about other pattern combo's this would work well with, but I think you really nailed the red underneath! I'd love to win the lace – so many possibilities of what to do with it.I've enjoyed reading your posts, and have admired many of your pieces, particularly your fabric choices. Happy Blogiversary
I have really enjoyed your blogging over the past year. You have made some really inspirational garments, probably my favourite being your dress with the pleated skirt.I'd love to win your giveaway.
Your blog has given me a lot of pleasure Melanie over the last 12 months of discovering sewing blogs, and you and many others have inspired me to get back into sewing like I use to for many years. Thank-you for this first year of blogging and I look forward to all the stories you are yet to write about in your sewing world. Congratulations and best wishes. For all of your future blogs and sewing creations.
I don't comment here often (should be studying!) but I love how challenging you make your efforts in your clothes making. I loved this lace dress and that is a nice giveaway. I've got the perfect pattern too. Count me in please…www.sewdarntired.blogspot.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

Congratulations on your one year anniversary. Your spring racing dress is lovely – glad you enjoyed the day after the 'trials' of the morning!
Beautiful lace. I would so love to get my hands on this. Gorgeous dress and well done on a great blog that I love to read.
Congrats! One can never have enough lace. Neighter as fabric nor as tanks/ tops, which would be my guilty pleasure…
That lace and your dress is beautiful. I would love to win. Happy Blogiversary!

Congrats on the 1 year anniversary! I wouldn't mind at all if that lovely lace happened to fall into my lap :) Look forward to many more poppykettle creations!
I'd love to win this lace … I've been futilely looking for cotton lace to make a summer 1890's corset. Although I'm sure that everyone who comments feels the same way as me (or we wouldn't be commenting).crossing my fingers in Sydney

Happy one year blog-o-versary…ohh I bet I could make a pretty top or skirt out of that and I have been needing an excuse to try some dying, thanks for the chance :)
Congrats on your blogiversary! Has it really only been a year? I feel like it’s been longer than that! The fabric is lovely and I would use it to make a fancy beach dress.
Oh, haha! This randomly showed up in my Feedly today. I see now that it’s old. I thought that fabric looked familiar!
Sorry about that Amy – not quite sure what has happened here!!
Congrats on making it through your first year of blogging. Please count me in for the giveaway.
