Giveaway :: Dorothy Jane

Good morning to you, dear followers! How did your past weekend go? Well today we've got a simply delightful giveaway in store for all you vintage lovers, that will hopefully start your week with some excitment! :) May I interoduce this week's sponsor: Dorothy Jane!
About The Shop ::
Dorothy Jane is the perfect shop for ladies who love all things vintage! Here is a bit about Dorothy Jane, taken from the etsy shop:

"If you love Jane Austen, Paris or shabby colors, you have come to the right place. I fashion art journals and gifts tags from antique ephemera which I collect or license. I love 19th century literature and fashions and so I try to design items that combine them both. In addition to Jane Austen, the Brontes are a favorite. I originally designed what I imagined to be Jane Austen's Journal and it grew into handmade Victorian Journals, Paris Art Journals and gift tags."
So, if you are, like me, a old-fashioned nut who loves everything vintage, feminine, Jane- Jane Austen, and Jane Eyre, then you need to know about this shop! I immediately fell in love with all the georgous items, as I believe you will too, after looking at some of the lovlies in her shop! Here are a few of my personal favorites!

Giveaway :: How To Sew Denim eBook

Hey guys! Today I'm back with a very unique giveaway that is super sew-eet for all you seamstresses out there! :) Today I'm pleased to introduce you to a very sweet young lady whom I've had the pleasure of getting to know through the blogging world. Her name is Miss Olivia and she blogs over at Fresh Modesty and Working With Eager Hands. Both blogs have been such a blessing to me, and I always enjoy reading her lovely posts. She mainly blogs about modesty, sewing and related topics. I highly suggest you check out both of her blogs and follow her as she has some lovely things over there you won't want to miss!
Olivia has now published two wonderful eBooks that assist young ladies desiring to sew modest clothing. Her first eBook was called Fresh Modesty and is a eBook that shows you step by step, how to sew your own modest swimsuit! Her second book was just recently released and is called How To Sew Denim and is a step by step guide on sewing with denim and also features TWO skirt patterns complete with pictures! How cool is that? I personally love to sew {at least, that is when I can get my sewing machine to work, currently it's broken. :( But hopefully I can change that in the near future} and so for all you other sewers out there, you'll for sure want to enter this giveaway!
About The eBook ::
{Taken from the website} Fresh Modesty: How To Sew Denim is a 63-page eBook chock full of step-by-step color pictures and instructions for creating both The Destination Skirt and The Errand #17 Skirt, which are denim skirts that are incredibly versatile and flattering. The eBook features instructions for creating these two styles of modest denim skirts that both feature a flattering and functional wide waistband with front fly detail and optional side and back pockets.
According to the Global Denim Project, “On any given day nearly half the world's population is wearing blue jeans.” That’s a lot of denim! Yet, why is it hard to find a modest, stylish, flattering skirt that resembles jeans for those of us who like skirts? And forget cheap.

There’s an answer, if you’re willing to exchange some elbow grease for affordability! This eBook guides you each step of the way, making it easy to craft a custom denim skirt for you or a friend. Is denim hard to work with? Not at all! It is thicker than most fabrics, but it has little stretch, is very forgiving, and oh so durable. These skirts last forever and only get better with wear. Denim has the unique quality of becoming more attractive the more worn it gets. For these skirts, that means the waistband conforms to flatter and fit you exactly, the seams are accentuated by fading in the relaxed, fabulous style of “authenticity” as it is called in the fashion world, and the skirt’s hang remains modest and complimentary.
