New Year's giveaway

As I promised before: here's the real announcement of my custom pattern giveaway.
You can take part by leaving a comment to this post, until the stroke of New Year (GMT+1). Your name will be entered in the draw twice if you place a link to my blog, either in an own post, or among your links.
On New Year's Day I will pick a winner at random (I think I'll just write down all the names and pick one from a hat) who will recieve the pattern of her choice from the designs shown below, lovingly handmade to her size by me (your Burda size would be all I need to know, but if you know you've got issues with e.g. the back length or shoulder size they use, let me know).
You don't need to take your pick or tell me your size just yet. I will announce the winner on the blog and ask her to mail me her choice and size.

These are your options:


this little shrug which you may have seen on Wardrobe Refashion already. It could be made in any jersey or knit and will come with a long sleeve option as well.



or a kimono-sleeved top with a V-neck at the back. For practical reasons, I made the back high enough so you can wear a bra underneath. You can see me wearing mine in this post.



and I am considering to add a third option, something like this... I can't show you any pictures of it though, because I haven't yet made it myself.

Let me know what you think!

  4. Hm... I like the third option, but I think it's generous enough of you even with the first two!

    And I added you to the list of my favourite sites on my blog http://marmota-b.blog.cz - because I should have done that a long time ago anyway!

  5. And I'm happy, because I finally managed to comment on your blog! Somehow it didn't work with my TypePad profile... It said something like "your OpenID couldn't be verified" (in Dutch, so that's my guess).
