A pattern pyramid has been formed! I was a lucky recipient of the goods and I'm stoked to be able to pass the goods on to one of you.  This pyramid is jammed packed with some rad patterns.  Why you ask of my use of words like rad and stoked...uhhmm I haven't a clue...Legend has it this pyramid formed in Australia, making it's way to the UK and ending up on my doorstep in a tiny little town in Indiana.
You can thank Amy of Almond Rock for that adorable image of the purple bear rocking out to his air guitar.  I only wish I find something just as adorable to include in the package to one of  you lucky winners.

There are close to 20 patterns to choose from.  I had hard time narrowing it down to just these three.

Vintage Simplicity 6529 - I don't know if I'm more attracted to the envelope design or the actual pattern.  Just look at that girl in the yellow. She's so damn happy, I wanna be her for a sec.

Vintage McCall's 8420 - What's not to love about a shift dress and a yoke jacket?  But look at the price back in 1966 - ONE Dollar!  Nowadays ya gotta wait for a Joann 5 for $5 sale to get a McCall's pattern for a dollar.

Vintage Butterick 3552 - A flared leg jumpsuit!? Whaa What!?  Once again I'm intrigued by the girl in yellow.

There's a lot more vintage goodies to choose from...

and since I'm so attracted to knits right now this was a hard one to pass up, especially after I seen the adorable version made up by Handmade by HeatherB

My contribution to the pyramid is one of those easy, instant gratification makes, Simplicity 2368

  2. Oh, sorry, got too excited and jumped the gun, my dream vacation is an open-ended ticket to travel europe and south america with an unlimited time constraint. I can figure out logistics and I don't even need to have unlimited budget, cuz I'm fancy and thrifty like that. Just time.

  3. My dream holiday would be a week trekking in Vietnam followed by a week on the beach in Thailand.
    Also I was going to say I'd have a hard time choosing a pattern but my hawk eye spotted a cape pattern!
    Good luck everyone.

  6. I love your choice! I want to be the girl in the yellow too, although after swimming, that awesome hooded number would be just the ticket! I covet the McCalls 8420 - in my size too!! and my ideal holiday would involve taking the extended family (I'm using Gjeometry's unlimited $$) back to Japan to show four generations just how wonderful and varied it is ;)

  10. Me and my boyfriend have always dreamed of doing a three week food and music marathon somewhere cool. We'de eat at local restaurants, peruse markets for fresh local produce, hunt for vinyls and vintage clothing, hit-up small bars and venues for awesome shows and do it all over again! Portland Oregon is up there on our list of places, but our ultimate escape could just as well be in Paris, London, Singapore, etc.

  11. I guess I'm going big or going home. lol I would love to go to South Africa and on a safari. My grandparents located there for a job for a time and I've always wanted to go ever since seeing 'The Ghost and the Darkness'...

  12. Oooh, I’ve been looking for something exactly like Simplicity 6942, and it’s even my size!


    My dream vacation would be a trip across the USA, visiting all of the cities I’d love to see someday (NYC first, of course, given that I’m a European and NYC is some kind of a symbol for us (; ) and meeting lots of people I’ve met online in person! It would probably take me at least half a year to do everything I’d want to do, so no, no chance of doing it anytime soon. But you asked for a dream, not reality!

  23. Wow, there are some beautiful patterns there!
    Hum, dream vacation... Well, my favorite country for a vacation is Italy - great food, great wine, lovely people, lovely weather and it's not too far from home. However, I once spent a couple of weeks in New Zealand and, apart from it being on the other end of the world, it was beautiful, so my dream vacation would probably a long camper trip around NZ with my boyfriend. Now if only he didn't hate long flights so much... ;)

  24. Fabulous choice - not sure how you managed to narrow it down though!
    My dream vacation would be to go anywhere, I haven't been on holiday since I was 15 (I'm 26 now) so I wouldn't mind where I was going!
