It's my birthday today and I'm celebrating it with a giveaway!
I've owned this reissue of the wonderful 1948 draping book, Precision Draping, for years, but last week my friend Johanna gave me a second copy. I asked if she minded if I offered it as a giveaway and she didn't, so here we are!
Precision Draping is a very easy-to-understand book that would be perfect for anyone with a passion for Forties style and an interest in crafting your own patterns (or in making changes to the ones you already own). The concepts aren't difficult to grasp; anyone with a little draping experience -- or none -- will be able to figure them out. This slim softcover book is full of charming illustrations that will inspire any Forties fashionista/sewista!

This giveaway is open to everyone the world over. To enter, simply leave a short comment below before midnight (EST) this coming Sunday.
I'll be announcing the winner, chosen at random, on Monday morning, April 25th.
