Beverley from On The Road To Sew Wear (great blog name!) came up with a super idea! Inspired by Karen’s Pattern Pyramid she decided to launch a pattern pyramid giveaway for us plus sized girls.
I was fortunate enough to win one of the giveaways from Karen’s pyramid. I just KNEW that I was going to win Beverley’s. And I did!
Here is the haul!
Here is what I’m adding to the mix. I love this pattern. Would be so lovely for a summer wedding. I just know that I will not be sewing this dress this year. Better to pass it on! The mock-wrap bodice and flowing skirt would be very flattering for us generous gals, I think.
Here is what I am keeping. I don’t have another pattern like it. I think it would be nice to make some summer tops. Maybe for my trip to London!
Here are the giveaway rules as copied from Beverley:
THE RULES (As copied – and slightly amended – from Did You Make That)
Anyone, anywhere can enter the giveaway by posting a comment below by midnight MST USA & Canada Sunday, March 3rd BUT you must have an ACTIVE BLOG. (Reasons to become obvious.)
I will randomly select 1 winner and post the patterns to them.
The winner will pick one pattern to keep for themselves, then host their own giveaway on their blog. They will randomly select a winner, post the remaining patterns to that winner and so on.
All patterns are in the plus size category – ie – if the pattern comes in 2 sizing groups, then it will be the larger category. Patterns to go up to at least go up to a size 20 (most go higher). Patterns listed as “all sizes” will include plus sizes.
If you wish to take more than one pattern you can replenish the stock with a pattern you no longer want – but please make sure it is in plus size range.
You get the idea!
THE SMALL PRINT
We are taking it on trust that all pattern pieces are there.
If you’re a winner, I would love it if you could make a small contribution to a charity of your choice. The Brooke is a charity close to the heart of Catherine, who so generously provided the original patterns. You can contribute there, if you like, but I know many of us have charities close to our heart. You’ll feel good winning and you’ll feel even better giving!
Please engage in a timely fashion, launching your own giveaways soon after receiving a parcel.
You must be be happy to post patterns worldwide.
Spread the word – let it be known to all!
So, leave your comment and tell me which pattern you would keep if you won.

The charity angle is pretty cool. Those are some lovely patterns. I agree with the top, it looks like it would be fantastic for vacations where waistlines may need to be a little forgiving if the food is a little too tasty.
Glad you received a pattern you liked – Looking forward to seeing it made up. Love your addition. Naturally I don’t want to go into the draw.
Oooh! I like the dress, very swishy! Please count me in!
Oh how fun! I love your addition. Can’t wait to see your make. And honestly – London – jealous. g
Oh, pick me! Pick me! I have a bunch I’d love to contribute…oh, who am I kidding- I just want that Suzy Chin!~!~
Fingers crossed! I like that middle pattern that I can’t see any names on- looks to be v-neck and for a knit? Right up my alley!
Congratulations on a fabulous prize! If I was to win I’d probably sew Sandra Betzina’s blouse as I’m in desperate need for some new tops to go with the skirts I’ve just made… plus I haven’t sewn a button down top before so I’d love the challenge of sewing something.

Hey ! Great! I love these pyramids because I get a pattern and I get to give away a pattern or two. I would definitely sew up the Sandra Betzina’s blouse.
