Fireworks & a GIVEAWAY!!!
Oh My!

So… yesterday was Independence Day (just in case you were under a rock and didn’t already know that…).  Lots of fireworks, food, drinks, and celebrating.  And drinks.  It was time to celebrate the birthday of America’s Independence, ya’ll.  Ok,  It’s actually an anniversary of America’s independence, but then my segway isn’t as good… ah, hell, you get the point.

Like Bumble is also celebrating it’s birthday.  I thought we should have a lil’ birthday celebration; and you can’t have a birthday party without presents, right?  So, I’m giving away a present to one lucky Like Bumble fan!  Plus, who doesn’t like giveaways?!?!

You may be asking yourself, “What’s the present and how do I get my hot lil’ hands on it?”

Well, it’s vintage lovliness!  I adore me some vintage anything.  It’s a bit of an obsession really.  And, I have a slight issue with hoarding collecting vintage patterns and fabric (well, all patterns and fabric really).  So, I figured I would share a few of my favorites with you.

The Goods:

Size 16 / Bust 36

Keep in mind, the sizes mentioned are vintage (nearly never the same as modern day sizing).  Also, each of the patterns can be easily tailored/ adjusted to fit (within reason).

BUT, there’s still room in the shipping box, so I’m adding a little more just for you!

5 modern & vintage-inspired patterns!
O.M.G.!

Of course, let’s take a closer look at these as well… because they are patterns & we must pay respect to the patterns.

This 50's inspired gown is just too sweet.  I want one just to wear & twirl around in & pretend like I'm in a scene from Peyton Place.

The details on the dress are so 40's inspired.   That gathered piped seam waist line would be sooooo flattering!

I'm loving Cynthia Rowley patterns.   This one has a great late 70's/ early 80's Calvin Klein feel, but is super modern and very Rowley!
