Sew Mama Giveaway Day (U.S. Visitors)




Welcome, Sew Mama Sew visitors (and everyone else)! Who doesn't love a chance to win some fun stuff?

For U.S. visitors only--international visitors, please see your giveaway here--I'm offering an envelope chock full o' vintage sewing stuff: what you see above--that brown fabric is actually a skirt that someone started; all you have to do is finish it, or you can repurpose the fabric--plus other bits and bobs I'll add later, PLUS anything (or things) from my Etsy shop, sewbettyanddot, up to $20. I decided to let YOU choose since you can pick your size or something to make for your little ones, etc. You can pick as many things as you like, up to $20. If you win, you'll send me a message telling me what things you'd like and I'll ship them on out to you--please note your prizes must come from sewbettyanddot, my sewing-themed shop only (not my other Etsy shop, though please do check it out, too!). Fun, yes?

Giveaway closes at midnight on Friday, May 16; winner will be chosen by the Random Number Generator.

You don't have to follow/like/friend me--but if you'd like to check out what I'm up to in the social media universe, please feel free!

I love Sven Brides for Seven Brothers!

I just love the gowns and dresses in "White Christmas." Classic and stylish.

Followed several of your pinterest pages - fun! Young Victoria, because I'd just begun learning about actual authentic historical fashion (beyond "oh, that's pretty"), and they got it spot on, down to the odd hairstyles. Can't watch Bonanza or Gunsmoke or any of those without commenting on where they got it right and wrong, which drives my husband crazy (they show old western shows on the wall at our favorite Mexican restaurant, which is in a former movie theater). Mad Men, too - I don't like the show itself (not my style), but the one episode I watched I kept nearly bursting with excitement ("not only is the style right, but that fabric! you can't get that fabric now! that's obviously polyester brocade, it's amazing, either that's a vintage dress in perfect condition or they've got REALLY dedicated costumers!").

Dorothy said...

Pick me! I have a couple vintage button cards and love them. Btw Foziewisp is a great word!

kathy said...

Shayla Sharp said...

I love the detail in the costumes of 47 Ronin (although it does have a sad ending).

Desiree said...

I'll be honest-- I don't usually watch movies and pay tons of attention to costumes. Funny since I like to sew so much... anyhow, I do love the costumes in Mirror, Mirror. I also think the ones in maleficent look amazing.

usagypsy said...

Wow, I've never really paid attention to the costumes! And I love old movies so if I were to pick it probably would be dresses from the 30s and 40s. I'll be paying more attention next time I sit down to watch one of my oldies!

Donna said...

I love the costumes in any of the Jane Austin movies, especially Emma.

Cheri, the Quilting Nanny said...

Nothing beats those dresses on Gone with The Wind... but the North and South sage was a very close, vERY close second!

Gone with the Wind.
The dress made from velvet curtains...unleashed up-purpose sewing years before the current trend! :)

Teresa said...

I worked in the costume department at my daughters' school - for all 8 years that they were in high school. That's what got me sewing again after not touching it for 40 years. I didn't used to notice costumes in movies but do now!

Sherri, you've named some of my favorite movies. Let me add Sabrina, Edith Head was the official designer but as many of us know it was Givenchy that actually designed those fabulous clothes.
Love, D

The Sound of Music! I made Leisl's dancing dress last year!

I loved the costuming in Shakespeare in Love.

Anonymous said...

No specific movie comes to mind (it's late, sorry) but I'm loving 40's vintage looks and Victorian is always amazing too (how did they manage all those layers and all that fabric!). Thanks! Sarah: crjandsbj(at)netzero(dot)com

Jess said...

I don't know if I've ever looked at the costuming in a movie.

Semi-related: the last thing I watched was an old re-run of Scrubs (season one, episode 3?). It's cathartic for me. :)

Sarah Bozone said...

The original Alfred Hitchcock Rear Window is a fave. I love the setting and have always loved the costuming of that period. All time favorite show is Carol Burnett show with its comedy & costumes! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Welcome to the Glorious Chaos! said...

Pride and Prejudice! I was born in the wrong era!

becky said...

The Great Gatsby and Game of Thrones have amazing costumes.

Not a movie, but I love the costuming in the tv show Once Upon A Time. Those dresses, and the cloaks the women wear in fairy land, oh my goodness! aprilgilbertson(at)gmail(dot)com

jeifner said...

The Secret of Moonacre has just the most beautiful and original costumes. I'd agree with DangAndBlast and say Young Victoria and it's also a charming movie.

Melissa said...

The clothing style in the curious case of benjamin button is pretty neat.

KristaBee said...

I am such a lover of the 1800's. So you know, Persuasion or Pride and Prejudice are favorites of mine.

Karrie S said...

I cannot think of one. sorry! I liked Dorothy's dress in the wizard of oz! and the other costumes! ksmith8@emich.edu. Thanks!

Brenda said...

I really love the costuming in the various professional productions of Cats that I have seen (and the filmed production). The actors move in those costumes so like cats that you forget they aren't!

Brenda said...

I've become a follower via Google Friend Connect, if that is worth a separate entry. I'd have followed you anyway, as I could probably keep you in stock with vintage goodies for a long time.

DolloMalice said...

My favorites are Gilda and the Notebook

Tara G said...

Thanks so much for the giveaway! I really love the Victorian Age clothing, so any movie or show in that time period is a win for me. =)

Debbie K said...

I'm watching the 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory now. Lots of fun clothing!

Stephanie said...

I think I will go with Little Women

sweetandsaltydesigns said...

I really like what they did in Pleasantville. I love that era and think the contrast from black, white & gray to color was fascinating.
