Comment to win the book "Famous Frocks"
Update: Congratulations to commenter #4, Calamity Jen!
Today we're excited to be giving away a copy of "Famous Frocks: Patterns and Instructions for Fabulous Iconic Dresses" by Sara Alm and Hannah McDevitt and illustrated by Kerrie Hess. "Famous Frocks" provides everything needed to recreate iconic looks by hand — including Audrey’s little black dress, Marilyn’s poster-classic white halter, Madonna’s sexy “Like a Virgin” number, and more. Vintage photos of the original look alongside beautiful color illustrations of the finished projects offer inspiration, while how-to illustrations break down each step so sewers of all skill levels can follow along. Packaged in an attractive lay-flat hardcover and featuring full-sized patterns for 10 classic dresses updated to be stylish for today (plus 10 variants for a full 20 new looks), this entirely original sewing book is a treat for lovers of vintage style.
Have you ever wished for the cool sophistication of Bette Davis? To wow a crowd like Diana Ross? Or maybe the old-school glamour of Rita Hayworth? This could be your chance to try on the style of your favorite fashion icon!
