** Drape Drape 2 Book GiveAway Now Closed **

Good Morning and Good News
Archie, Brand Ambassador for alittlesewing blog, is proud to announce a book giveaway.
This is, needless to say, the Glamour Shot.

This free book came to me, in exchange for a book review on my blog - and a free copy will go to one of you, dear readers!  When the offer came, I could not say YES fast enough. Read more about Bunka Fashion College here on Cidell's blog where she reviews their textbooks. The publisher says,
"Where cult favorite Pattern Magic left off, the Drape Drape series continues - skillfully guiding readers through the draping process.  Hisako Sato's Drape Drape 2 focuses on the use of draping techniques to create wearable origami-like garments that draw out the unique character of the textile"


IT COMES WITH PATTERNS!
I can see myself in this knit top.


or shall we go for the gusto and jump into the deep end of the pool!


yes, that is my coat in the background, with the pockets finished.
I am making good progress.
So, who's in? Leave a comment telling me you are interested and make sure I have some way of contacting you. Archie will make a random drawing on November 18 - Sunday evening - 7pm Eastern Standard Time. The publisher will send the book directly to the name and address of the winner.

Archie says she will use a fair selection process, but flattery is always welcome. She likes ham lunchmeat, too, but I told her no bribes will be accepted.

ENTER NOW TO WIN!
and I'll keep sewing my coat .......

Update November 18:

Congratulations Curious Kiwi- I'll be in touch with you!

  51. Pick me! Please...I have wanted to learn to drape since college, but then was too embarassed to submit to having a plaster cast made of my overweight body. 30 years later - I want to add draping to my skill set (I'm a Project Runway junkie) and need a reason to puchase a dress form. And, I'd like to teach my kiddos in school to drape.
