1920s Inspired Accessories...and a Giveaway

I'm excited to introduce you to two bloggers who have become friends and together we (and several others) are part of Willow & Co, a pattern collective launching our first collection this Spring.

Today they are joining in for some Downton Inspired sewing and taking a look at fashions in the 1920s.

Celina from Petit a Petit and Family is just one of those people who must not need any sleep. She is always creating something amazing whether it's sewing for her own kids, contributing to other blogs, or pinning all the fantastic images you can imagine on Pinterest (seriously, you need to follow her to see what I mean). She is also working on releasing her own brand of patterns called In+Seam. Here are a couple of my favorite posts of hers:

And today Celina is sharing some 1920's inspiration with us at Petit a Petit and Family. Just look at this artwork! Go check it out!

Today you can also get inspired by Hayley at Welcome to the Mouse House where she writes about sewing and shows her gorgeous home. She has released several great sewing patterns you won't want to miss. And here are a couple of my favorite projects of hers:

Hayley made an adorable flapper dress and cloche hat for her daughter for the Downton Sewing Series. Get all the details here.

And now for today's giveaway...

There will be THREE winners and each will receive a different package of fun goodies! All three winners will be given a copy of Violette Field Thread's Coco Mittens pdf sewing pattern. In addition, one winner will get a yard of fabric from Andover Fabric's Downton Abbey collection, one will get a hat pdf sewing pattern of their choice from Elsewhen Millinery, and the third winner will receive a copy of The Ultimate Apron pdf sewing pattern from CharmingDoodle. (The fabric giveaway is open to US residents only, but the pdf pattern giveaways are open worldwide so everyone can enter!)

The Downton Abbey collection from Andover Fabrics would be perfect in making an apron (using The Ultimate Apron pattern, of course) inspired by one of the Downton house workers or just if you want a gorgeous accessory for your little one. Here are the fabrics inspired by Lady Sybil. So pretty!

Each lucky winner in today's giveaway will also get the Coco Mittens pattern from Violette Field Threads so they can make some Downton inspired gloves. The pattern gives a really professional finish. Below is a pair of lace gloves I made for my girls. Such a great pattern!

And what 1920's outfit would be complete without a cloche hat like this one I made for my little girl? I used the Madeline pattern but the giveaway winner today will get their choice of pdf hat patterns from Elsewhen Millinery.

Enter to win using the widget below. Good luck! And don't forget to use #downtonsewing when you share your project. I'll be featuring some of what you sew soon!
