Janet at Lanetz Living couldn't choose just three patterns (and I can't blame her) … instead, she created a special 25% off coupon for you! Use the code "xmas" when they check out and it will automatically be deducted. Plus, Janet offers free Shipping in the USA and Canada when 3 or more items are purchased. (International shipping is discounted with three or more items.) The coupon will be good from now until New Year's Day.
Janet has over 200 Vogue Designer patterns to choose from … has newly listed McCalls Needlework Magazines from the 1930's to 1950's … and (my favorite) dozens of shirtwaist dresses that span the era from the 1940's to today!
Holly at Freudian Slips Vintage says that Dress A Day readers will receive a 10% discount off anything from her website if you type in coupon code RUDOLF. Check out with the shopping cart as usual, then click "recalculate" to receive the discount from your order. The discount will run from now until the 20th of December only, and will finish at midnight UK time.
If you're looking for something to spend that discount on, you might want to peep at these:
Whew! I think that's it; see you after Christmas! Happy Holidays!
Sheila at Out of the Ashes has created a coupon JUST for Dress A Day readers good until December 26 for 15% off instead of the usual 10% – yay! Put in PRESENT at checkout it's not too late to get a pattern for a New Year's Eve dress …
Tina, at What-I-Found offers these for your holiday listmaking:
These are from Lisa at Miss Helene's:
And these are from the Vintage Fashion Library:
I'm going to post all the fabulous Christmas and Holiday links I got today if it kills me.
Luckily, Jen at MOMSPatterns is making it easy; look at this:
If there is someone on your list that wouldn't like this pattern then perhaps next year you should just send them a card.
She's got this great men's shirt up, too, on eBay:
Jen is also offering 20% off any Dress A Day order through the end of the year, with the coupon code 'alliwant20'. It's good from now until 12/31/2008 midnight, EST. Good on any MOMSPatterns order, excluding gift certificates (although gift certificates are a REALLY good idea)! Oh, and the 20% is even good on that shirt above — mention it when you win the auction and Jen will adjust the invoice!
Anna at BootyVintage has these in stock right now (but probably not for long):
A pattern of gifts "children can make for the whole family!"
And some great aprons:
Julie at Damn Good Vintage has these treasures:
Both of these dresses are larger sizes …
Eileen at Daisy Fairbanks knows what good girls (and possibly, bad girls) want:
If that tie makes you happy, be sure to check out Burda's "David" tie pattern! (Make one for the Pink and Black Tie Ball! … and don't forget their Holiday gifts blog … I love these easy silk flowers!)
Birgit at Stitches and Loops sent me these, and only my sense of bloggish responsibility kept me from buying all of these myself and not posting them:
Christine at Alley Cats has these for some lucky Jazz Age babe:
Hotpatterns is doing a sale: buy any two of their three bestselling dresses and get the bag pattern of your choice free! (You have to email in your choice of bag pattern to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will add it to the order — Offer ends Dec 31st! One of their three bestsellers is this one, which I love and plan to make Real Soon Now:
Of course you are. Karen at Mystique Vintage is offering these three charmers:
A great sheath dress pattern:
Some really nice floral 1940s fabric:
And, for the girl who has (nearly) everything: a faux-fur and satin hanky-holder. You know, for the vanity table:
Karen has also added a gift certificate feature to her site through Paypal – good on all items for sale at Mystique Vintage (with no expiration date!) and in denominations of $5.
Amy at Viva Vintage has this heartbreakingly wonderful vintage coin charm bracelet:
And this mother-of-pearl bracelet:
And this wool cape and muff set, which is so vintage it looks like it's from the future!
Oh, and Deborah sent me this link to an Etsy necklace supposedly inspired by this blog! I am very, very flattered.
Marge at Born Too Late has the perfect suit for your Mad Men-obsessed friend:
She's also got this sparkly green cocktail dress, this really cute Anne Adams newspaper pattern and this Vogue pattern (ahem, Santa, I've been really good this year …) And Marge is giving 10% of the purchase price of all items (not including shipping) to the Salvation Army through the end of December!
Carol [not Caroline, as I had it earlier! ooops!] at Dandelion Vintage has a great selection of vintage purses (including this mock-croc doctor's bag):
And if you're giving a bag, why not put a vintage hanky in it? Carol also has lovely vintage aprons, which make great gifts whether the recipient cooks or not (if she does, it's useful; if she doesn't it's funny).
