Sew Over It Giveaway

Sew Over It PatternsSew Over It have released their patterns on commercial sale. I’m soooo pleased about this. The very talented owner, Lisa, drafts her own patterns for the classes she teaches at her south London shop and I’ve always been amazed that students get bespoke patterns as part of their class fees.

Now, we can all enjoy Lisa’s drafting skills! I tell you, I’m still dreaming about a red crepe dress I once saw hanging up in the shop. Finally, I can make my own Sew Over It dress. I’m all over the shift dress. In a wool crepe? Yes, please!

Sew Over It Shift Dress

Sew Over It have also produced some kits, including a tie making kit and a knicker making kit. I’d show you the knicker making kit, only Ella destroyed the packaging. (Thankfully, not the contents.)

But enough banging on about what covetable items I’m stroking right now. Fancy your own covetable items? Time for a giveaway!

    Oh wow, a tie kit! I’ve been looking around for something like this because it will be my boyfriend’s birthday in November and I thought it would be fun to make him a tie from some crazy fabric. (:
    I am currently rather over trying to fit the dress I’ve been working on and have decided to make something quick and simple to recover the joy.

  11. Louise says:

    I’m so over the British Weather, I know we’re only at the start of autumn and have the winter yet to come but enough already. If I could be reincarnated I’ve always wanted to be a hibernating animal, like a dormouse or squirrel, that goes to sleep when the weather starts to get horrid and wakes up when the crocuses start to appear.
    BTW would love the wrap dress…

  12. Claire Temple says:

    I am so over dark nights at 5pm! However, I’m very happy that the sun is currently shining over London Town. Thanks for your blog and constant motivation and enthusiasm…..from a novice sewer, currently figuring out how to sew my first set of buttons onto my first shirt!

  13. Candace says:

  14. Erika says:

    I am so over the curtains I am sewing for a friend at the moment, I’d love to win this giveaway and start sewing something more fun!

  15. Judy says:

    I saw the wrap dress made up at the Stitching & Knitting Show and coveted it then. Here’s my chance! I am sew over not sewing for fear of that first step – scissors away!

  16. I’m so over sewing with velvet right now, my walking foot leaves marks on the fabric so I’m hand-basting every seam to prevent major shifting. It’s taking soooo looooong!

  17. makesphere says:

    Ooo yes please! I’ve been getting into wrap dresses recently.
    I am so over tidying. Been doing a bit of Autumn cleaning and it sucks!

    I’m sew over struggling with the tension on my new overlocker! It going back to the hop for a sort out.

  23. Liz says:

    I am so over spending all my free time studying for uni! By the time this kit gets all the way to Australia I’d probably be done for the year and all my free time will be spent with lots of fabric! When I saw the patterns I was immediately drawn to the wrap dress =]

  24. jenb says:

    I’m so over the 70-odd fabric/lining/facing/interfacing pieces i have to hand-baste together before i can “whip” up my wedding dress, which is a mere three weeks away…hmm…:)

  25. How lovely! I’m so over peeling the huge apple mountain, which is keeping me away from crafty projects.

  27. dottiedoodle says:

  33. kristonlion says:

    so over spiders! and running out of wine!

  34. Jo says:

    I do like the giveaway rules πŸ™‚

    I am so over my day job. Has anyone figured out a way to live off staying at home and sewing your own whims yet?

    I’m also so over never winning giveaways πŸ™‚ (Is fate taking hints? please pretty please?)

  35. Elisabeth says:

    I’m so over matching plaids on a bias cut dress that I can’t really get to fit properly!

  40. Sarah says:

    I’m so over wind! This weather is too blustery!

  42. SewMeow says:

    Those patterns look so nice and made with love. The wrap dress will make a good christmas dress I guess! I’m so over sewing baby presents at the moment! My friends and family breed like rabbits and nothing but self-made presents are accepted. All those baby things are super cute and good sewing practice but I need to make a dress for myself now!

  43. Yes, please!
    I am so over programming. I’ve been working on this project for a seminar I am in. Next week I have a presentation where I have to show my restults from the programming. After that I’m gonna sew, sew, sew πŸ™‚

  44. Rona says:

    I am so over late night group meetings for a presentation next week and buying an expensive book that turned out to be the wrong one!

  47. Stephanie says:

  48. So brilliant they are doing patterns. I like the ones they use for their classes. Hope they bring out more. Would love to make that wrap dress.

  49. Irene says:

    I am so over ripping off all of my latest project- a plaid cape – after my sewing class teacher told me that my work wasn’t as neat as she expected! (she is probably right but – to my defense- I was also been given contradictory guidelines by my pattern teacher re some steps of the construction).

  50. sullivan1970 says:

    I am so over too much work and not enough sewing!

  51. Emmie says:

    oh, im so over looking for presents for people!

    I’m so over my ‘must do’ jobs. Too much ironing, floor cleaning and dish scrubbing when all I want to do is SEW!
    Thanks for the giveaway. I’ll happily let the chores pile up if I win πŸ™‚

  56. lauriesannie says:

    My serger, which is supposed to be the best on the market and consequently is very temperamental. And gosh, Emmie is Christmas shopping already????

  57. What a fabulous giveaway. This week, I’m so over a horrendous fitting issue with a pattern everyone else thinks is super (quick un-pick now thankfully tucked away)!

  58. SarahB says:

    I’m so over the clocks changing – so depressing not getting home until it’s properly dark! Good excuse to shut the curtains, light the fire and get on with my project backlog, though. X

  59. Angelica says:

    I am SO over the traffic problems here in Denmark after a big storm monday evening. How can it take 3 hours to drive a train 50 km?
    I am however looking forward to a big fabric market this weekend in Neumunster with my mother and grandmother. It’s the perfect get-away!

  60. I am so over job applicartions and interviews – I know I have heaps of time for sewing, but this job hunting process is dragging me down. I bet if I had that wrap dress I’d get the next job I applied for

  61. simone says:

    WOnderful looking patterns. Would dearly love to make the dress and the tie. Hmmm what am I over? Well today it is making up for lunchboxes everyday for my brood. So hard to come up with a healthy lunch box that pleases everyone.

  62. I love that wrap dress, and I have the perfect fabric in my stash. I am so over work and children sucking up my energy and sewing time. And Peppa Pig World. Still in recovery after that one. I love my children more than anything but there are some things that no human should have to endure.

  63. Bec Stitches says:

    So over work cutting into my bloody sewing time! I would love to make this dress for my mum πŸ™‚ she loves wrap dresses

    I am so over mosquitoes. We’ve had a terrible mosquito season this summer and fall!

  69. What a great give away? I’m so over havin no time to sew πŸ™

  70. Phili says:

    Hmmm, not sure I can pick one thing that I am so over!Probably the most relevant would be that I am SO OVER feeling guilty about having too much fabric in my stash and not having enough cash in my purse! Apparently sewing new dresses is a great way for dissipating guilt!

  71. Paunnet says:

    I’m so over my noisy upstairs neighbor… Is she walking in wooden shoes?

    i’ve recently been compiling a Bookmark folder full of independent pattern companies, in an attempt to get my sewing mojo back (and to always have close at hand a list of great online sewing-related shops), so i was very happy to see these lovely newcomers. And what is more, Sew Over It has been on my ‘To Do When Next In the UK List’ for months now, so even better!

  74. Debra Hewitt says:

    Would love to win the wrap dress pattern – can’t be worse than trousers right!


  79. Chris says:

    So over too much work and not enough sewing time!! Every weekend its groceries, cooking, cleaning, work and then Monday.

  80. Maria says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’m sure it’ll bring joy to the winner!

  81. Luna says:

  82. Sally says:

    Ooh, great giveaway and fab patterns. I’m so over the changing seasons – I have nothing to wear for this schizophrenic weather!

  83. Becky says:

  84. I am so over half term – the tube is full of rowdy kids in the morning πŸ˜€

  88. Aileen Brown says:

    I am so over making myself clothes that are getting better all the time even though I say so myself. I just don’t have places to wear them! A wrap dress would solve that problem – can be worn just about anywhere.

  89. Kaitlyn says:

    I am so over my journal analysis assignment for university. I was supposed to be working on it all semester, but left it til I had the time, but now it’s just dragging, and my brain hurts from having to write pithy 100wds analysis’. All I want to do is sew!

  96. Sofie says:

    I am so over this flu that I have. I have just had 3 days in bed… I don’t remember anytime in my 51 years where I have stayed in bed for a day let alone 3! I could not move.

  106. Ali says:

    Oooooo! I’m so over the moon at your giveaway!

    I’m so over a lot of other things too….!
    ~I’ve just finished my set of nights (shift work after 20 years doesn’t get any easier, but I took my sewing machine to work and got 4 Hours on station sewing – unheard of usually, I thought I’d just be able to do some in my 37 and a half minute break – yes the 1/2really matters when we’re busy -I’m a paramedic) so I’m so over having to stay in bed all day.
    ~I’m so over people who moan and complain – this doesn’t happen in the blogging world, but it does at the golf club where i play. I’m lady captain this year and have put a notice up about serial whingers as I’m an eternal optimist and moaning drives me mad. Moaning now stopped!
    ~ I’m so over being stuck on level 421 of candy crush. Very sad you may think, but after 3 weeks on that level I was getting just a little frustrated.
    ~and last but not least! I’m so over-whelmed at my 11 year old this morning with his response when I woke him to give him his Halloween costume I’d managed to finish off at work. “Wow mum! It’s amazing”. Priceless!!

    Good luck with giveaway, it’s great to read all the comments πŸ˜€βœ‚οΈπŸ˜€βœ‚οΈπŸ˜€βœ‚οΈπŸ˜€

I have always wanted to make a few unique ties for my husband. Thanks for the give away. Love your blog.

Now I’m miserable in a hotel room in a strange country where I can’t eat anything and can’t talk to anyone in case I’m contagious! Thank goodness for the Internet and sewing giveaways πŸ˜‰

    Those are some really cute patterns! This week I am SO OVER working. At work we are launching a product which means I am working long days and the weekend. Noe evening sewing… no weekend sewing. Can’t wait til it’s over! ~Laurie

  141. esr0se says:

    I am so over moving, which I’ve been doing for the last few weeks! Time to enjoy being unpacked and start using my new sewing room!

  142. Sally says:

    Life is pretty good in these parts actually – not a lot to get frustrated with – I suppose I’m over housework… but that is just my normal state of being and not unique to this week.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win. Those patterns look fabulous.

  143. edenz says:

    This week I’m so over VBA! (MS office coding language for those fortunate enough to know nothing about it)

  144. Mary Beth says:

    I’m so over not having enough time to sew this fall! And I’m so excited by Sew Over Its new patterns! Thanks for telling me about them, Karen.

  145. MrsAlex says:

    I’m so over Halloween. With two small children, there is only so much pumpkin carving a mummy can be expected to do

  146. I’m so over this week, because I’m addressing wedding invitations. Why didn’t I focus more on my penmanship in school? It actually does come in handy!

    Also, thank you for hosting this giveaway! Sew Over It hasn’t opened up their system to orders from the States, so despite immediately deciding to buy the patterns, I can’t get my hands on them. *fingers crossed*

  147. Dayl says:


    I’m so over putting off sewing with vinyl. I have 2 projects that require me to do it and I haven’t touched them in MONTHS! :S

  148. Helena says:

    Count me in! I’m so over my three year old waking up at six every morning, squeezing into my bed and squirm around like a propeller whilst talking

  149. SeeKatSew says:

    I am so over big company patterns with their mediocre instructions and models with weird poses. Bring on a new indie pattern company!!!

  150. Ruth Procter says:

    I’m so over proofreading gruesome medical documents! A quick trip to the Sew Over It website to look at these patterns has brightened things up though, they look great! Thanks for the giveaway!

  151. I am so over my sewing area being a complete disaster, and not being able to sew properly.

  152. Eileen says:

    I’m so over hunting for a job! A new wrap dress might help me feel better (if the contest is open to people in the US, that is….).

  153. sewmanju says:

    I am so over half term! It’s only Wednesday and so far had a trip to the ballet, 2 play dates and a trip to the hairdressers and dentists all for my daughter. I would love to win so I can sew when she’s back at school πŸ™‚

  154. Coo Jarvis says:

    I’m so over spending 45 minutes trying to insert a zipper and it still looks like a mess. Love the wrap dress, great giveaway.

  155. PDX Gretchen says:

    I am so over being 38 weeks pregnant, unable to bend over, emotional, and with only about six (not necessarily flattering) items in my clothes rotation at this point. I can’t wait to get back to sewing cute things for me and my family.

  156. Helen says:

    I would love to try one of these Sew Over It patterns. I am so over not taking time to sew! Need to create and use my growing stash πŸ™‚

  157. Amie M says:

    Fantastic! Another pattern resource to enjoy! The wrap dress should be wonderful to make, but I’m actually more excited about the tie kit.

  158. Karen Helm says:

    I am so over fretting about how long it takes me to make something that should be simple! But I’ll never be over wrap dresses – thanks for entering my name in the giveaway!!

  159. Jo says:

    I am so over waiting for my woodburner to be installed, the weather is getting colder!.

  160. LM says:

    I am soooo over jet lag….so over it! the dresses are so beautiful, i would love to give the wrap dress a try! thank you πŸ™‚

  161. Sanne says:

    I’m so over my new employer! They send me my damn contract yesterday and I’m supposed to start on Monday!

  162. Jaimie says:

    I am feeling so over negative feelings and embracing a positive attitude. I love this time of year and I’m sewing up the most awesome Christmas stockings for all my Kids. Thank you for the opportunity to win those beautiful patterns !! Where can they be purchased??

  163. Jerilyn says:

    I’m so over commuting one hour to work only to face that one hour commute to get home. And now it’s dark to boot, at least I won’t have the setting sun in my eyes for a while.

  164. Kerri says:

    I am so over studying. Exams in Dec mean no time to sew. And possibly I should stop procrastinating by reading blogs too…

  165. Oooo yes please a lovely winter wrap dress will be perfect for those slightly less formal Christmas dinners coming up!
    I am so over…
    a) buying fabric from ebay – my latest purchase has a hole in it
    b) salad for lunch – give me something to microwave and warm me up
    c) searching for cheaper house insurance – time is money
    d) knitting Christmas presents – can’t I make something for me now?

  166. alisonrea says:

    Oh, I’d love to win this. I am so over knitting a sweater! I am knitting my first cardigan and I can’t believe how long it is taking, but I will persevere.

  167. I a so over the kids and halloween costume shopping this week. (though they yesterday when all costumes were 100% done, decided to start writing Santa letters).
    I am sew over not having any time to sew. I have a list a mile long of things that I want/need to sew, but haven’t had any time to get started.

  168. Tonie says:

    So over the school routine. On holiday with the kids this week and loving carefree mornings in pjs.

  169. Lindsay says:

    I’m so over the fact I won’t have ANY OF MY STUFF for the next 5-7 weeks while it is in a shipping container making it’s way across to our new place. Also, that I now have to do battle with the California DMV, Social Security people, and find somewhere to live before it arrives!

  170. Ariana says:

    I was just contemplating buying this pattern, you can never have too many wrap dresses πŸ˜‰
    Hmmm I’m sew over not having my new sewing space organized and ready to go!

  171. Katie H. says:

    I am SO OVER having to leave my sewing all day while I’m at work…

  172. Gina says:

    I am so over writing my dissertation! I have a deadline coming up Monday so I’ve been working like a madwoman to get things done and I can’t wait for the little lull that will come after I’ve turned it in and wait for feedback from my advisor!

  173. yosami says:

    I’m so over trying to scroll down through all of these responses so that I can add mine!!! Your blog is just too popular!! Great giveaway – I’ve spied some leopard print wool jersey that I’m lusting over that would be great for this – go on, feed my fabric habit and give me an excuse to buy it!

  174. Sewingjen says:

    I am so over buying cheap nasty “sweat shop made” clothing and have vowed where possible to make ALL my clothes from now on, and plough through my fabric mountain.

  175. BΓ©a says:

    Actually, my life is pretty good right now, and there’s really nothing much that I’m so over. Can I still be in the draw?

  176. Ruth D says:

    I am so over hand embroidery and beading. My daughter got married last month and I made her dress. If I never see another bead in my life, I’ll die a happy woman. but I so have another daughter… πŸ˜‰

  177. Sue says:

    I am so over my boyfriend being out of town for two and half weeks. Having the house to yourself is nice at first, but that’s all! It’d sure be nice to celebrate his return with a tie made from the tie kit! πŸ™‚

  178. Carly Tredway says:

    Hi, thank you for running this competition!

    I am so over bitchy work colleagues who undermine you simply because of their own insecurities! On a sewing front, I am so over packing my time with renovations, uni, family duties, cleaning and homework because I don’t have any time for sewing. This prize would be a perfect opportunity for me to regain my sewing mojo. x

  179. Nita says:

    I am so over working for a living…I only have 5 more Fridays until retirement!

  180. clarekitten says:

    This week I am so over tracing, cutting out and fitting my first Anna Dress from By Hand London in Liberty of London Tana Lawn. I was due to take part in the sewalong but I am a few weeks behind. Sewing whilst working full time and caring for my life limited mother and family is such a release from the pressure! However helping a loved one throug their end of life is not a chore as my mother spent many years caring for me.
    love your blog. πŸ™‚

  181. This week I’m so over a dress that I have been sewing on from time to time since 2008! It’s finally done, and pictures of it will soon be on my blog πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the giveaway! Sew over it seems like an exiting new (to me) pattern company! πŸ™‚

  182. Lauren says:

    I’m so over my husband’s boring ties!

  183. cathi says:

    Those are great looking patterns. I am so over glitter! Two Hallowe’en projects with glitter and it is all over my house (and the dog and cats)!

  184. helen says:

    I’m so over Halloween (and its only 30th Oct!)

  185. mrsnsfamilymatters says:

    I love the wrap dress so I do hope I win!!

  186. I would love to win this pattern! I am so over stormy weather we have had recently. Be gone!

  187. Nessa says:

    I am so over this Halloween malarky!

  188. Lara says:

    I am SO OVER strep throat! Those patterns look really cute, I’m looking forward to seeing how your shift dress turns out πŸ™‚

  189. Gaynor says:

    I’m sew over…driving my mum backwards & forwards to her house, she’s moving in with me and my family this weekend!

  190. Su says:

    Yes please, and I am so over being 36 (birthday was yesterday!) πŸ˜‰

  191. Diana says:

    I am so over the cold weather — and winter is almost here! :S

  192. Becky Brown says:

    This week I am so over trying to hold onto Summer. With the clocks going back and a chill in the air this morning (we’re in France and have not experienced ‘the storm’) it’s slippers, log fires and hot chocolate from now on.

  193. I’m so over only being able to make small sewing projects at the moment because of my knitting course taking priority. A wrap dress would be the perfect project to be indulgent with as soon as I can think of making myself something to wear again … Thanks for the chance to win!

  194. I am so over not having a suitable autumn work wardrobe. This pattern could definitely be the answer!

  195. Ainhoa says:

    Wow, thanks for this giveaway! I’ve wanted to make a wrap dress for a while and this one looks great!

    This week I’m so over the little pesky tasks at work that should only take half a day but end up taking two full looong days!

    Thanks again,

  196. Cerys says:

    I am so over being consumed by my job all week… ready for the weekend and to get my sew on!

  197. Hanne says:

    I’m so over people parking their cars right in front of my front door so I can’t get out of the house.
    But I’m very much in love with the sew over it patterns!

    • camillaerlandsson says:

      I’m so over my stressful job. Can’t wait to start studying in January, I would love to wear a wrap dress to lectures, too. πŸ™‚

  198. Jenny says:

    So over the sudden dark evenings and it’s going to get worse but I am having a grand time spending half term with my funny, cute and best one year old grandaughter in Leeds where the council have some amazing places to visit. jennylarking at gmail dot com

  199. Diane says:

    Would love to be part of this. I’m so over procrastinating. I want to do lots of things but the doubting voice in my head always talks me out of it today. I want to be sewing and writing and running – be quiet, Doubting Voice, leave me alone!

  200. I am sew over not making muslins before hacking into my precious fabric stash πŸ™‚

  201. Alessa says:

    Oh, Tilly also mentioned those patterns! They look so pretty! πŸ™‚
    I went to IKEA today, and I’ve been putting together assorted shelves, so now I’m totally over putting together furniture… *groans*

  202. Helen says:

    Wow, great giveaway. I am so pleased Lisa has decided to release patterns. They are gorgeous, but living in Edinburgh I’ve never managed to make it to the cafe to do the classes!

    I am so over toilet training my son. We’ve been doing it since July – yes over 3 months ago and we are still yet to have an accident free week. I’ve even resorted to bribery with chocolate – something I swore I would NEVER do, as a mum!

    Thank you! πŸ™‚

  203. Caroline says:

    I’m sooo over the alarm each morning!

  204. EmSewCrazy says:

    OOh what lovely stuff. I’m impressed with this lady’s skills, drafting patterns for the classes she’s teaching.
    Hmm I’m sew over wondering what to sew for the craft show coming up and what kind of ornaments to make for a shop that has asked for stuff. I just want to make things!! Preferably clothing things for me and my Mom.

  205. Sox says:

    What cool kits -I’ll have to revisit Lisa’s site as I didn’t look at the kits last time.
    I am so over my Hallowe’en costume -thankfully I don’t need it until Friday night. There was way too much pondering and not nearly enough action on the sewing front.
    Thank you for hosting such a nifty giveaway. Keep warm!

  206. Julia says:

    Love the look of these patterns, the tea dress has certainly caught my eye! Pretty packaging too πŸ™‚

  207. Kira says:

    I’m so over working my desk job, and dreaming about sewing instead of actually doing it. I tried to buy that wrap dress this week, and couldn’t have it shipped, so I would LOVE to win! Thanks,

  208. I’m so over work. It’s half term and I’ve had opportunity to get my creative mojo back.. It’s just I don’t have time to do all the catching up I want to do.. Anyway, the giveaway looks fab, I’m always looking for good patterns and struggle to find great ones that suit me. I think all these patterns would.

  209. Queen Quickunpick says:

    I am so over my husband being away for 6 months somewhere hot, whilst I am stuck in a cold, windy UK and I am also over having to discipline my 2 year old and be mum and dad to our 3 boys. I am also so over not knowing how to measure myself properly so all my makes are huge!! Think 7 should simply eat more til they fit!.

  210. Gorgeous patterns! I’m so over the toddler battles of will this week – this morning my son wouldn’t even kiss me goodbye. Time to disappear into the lady cave[1] with the sewing machine, I think.

    [1] That sounds weirdly suggestive in a way that ‘man cave’ does not. Hmmm …

  211. Paola says:

    Heh. Just reading the comments about people being so over work makes me smile, as I am so over applying for jobs, and the failure of most organisations to even acknowledge said applications. Recruitment people, there are human beings behind those applications that take hours to put together. It’s nice to receive a little message to say, yes we received it. You don’t even have to say you’ve read it!
    Whew! off my soapbox.
    Yes, please include me in your giveaway. I like the look of that wrapdress especially.

  212. Lou says:

    Ooh great giveaway, thank you.
    So I am rather partial to a wrap dress but without the budget for a DVF number. Would love to win.

  213. Simona says:

    I am so over my broadband being dead today. Can’t function properly without internet connection.
    Just when I had a bit of time to catch up with blog reading it stopped working. Anyhow the wrap dress look pretty go. Ohh… Ella looks like she likes opening packages for you. πŸ˜‰

  214. Mary says:

    Wow! What a great giveaway–thanks for the opportunity!
    Today I am so over my child’s temper tantrums. I know that she’s still learning to cope with life’s little struggles, but it makes my back hurt, and I don’t sew well with an achy back. Doesn’t it all come back to SEWING?!?

  215. makeitgiveit says:

    I’m so over having too much to achieve and a desire to sew…. will this ever change sewing magic fairy? Super fingers crossed I’d love a good wrap dress pattern

  216. Jillian says:

    I am so over having to trace my Japanese sewing patterns, then add seam allowances of various widths on every edge, then cut. Grrrrr…. Better turn out looking great! I love these Sew Over It patterns they are sew me!

  217. Becky says:

    I’m so over migraines!

  218. Danielle says:

    What lovely patterns! Count me in —> While I LOVE fall, I’m SO over that it gets dark so early outside now! (and we’ll be changing out clocks back this weekend — I know you already changed yours!)

  219. Donna says:

    Ooooh boy. What great patterns. I see myself learning something new to “tie” into what I already know.!

  220. Oh, I’m so over clutter…. I’m working on trying to get organized enough to set up a SEWING ROOM!

  221. ShanniLoves says:

    I am so over my seam ripper!! Argh!

  222. Pat says:

    I’m so over sewing for other people. I want to finish up my projects for other people and start sewing for myself.

  223. Andrea says:

    Yes! I want the tie kit! I’ve tried like 3 tie patterns recently are none are quite right. I’m so over not having a Sew Over It tie kit in my life πŸ˜‰

  224. mmholder says:

    I am SOoooo over not sewing! Ready to start again!

  225. Debra Venables says:

    Gorgeous wrap pattern. I am so, so over sick little people. My babies are lurching from one childcare illness to the next. This week’s version was a doozy.

  226. Louise says:

    YES please, I am sew over my sewing room being a mess – can someone please come and clean it for me!!!

  227. Megan says:

    Ooh, I’d love to enter! At the moment I’m so over exams sucking away any free time I might have had to sew… πŸ™

  228. cathytremain says:

    Wow, I am so over I am at the end :-0 – actually audits and tax returns! There are limits and sewing is a sanity project – oops I have a lot of those but not a wrap dress!

  229. Amy says:

    Wow such a cool giveaway, I am so over pumpkin themed things! Too much halloween!

  230. anneh says:

    Love, love, love the giveaway. And after a long day of it, I am so over cleaning my house!

  231. MsDarling says:

    I am so (sew) over people using my sewing scissors for not-sewing purposes!

  232. Anne-Marie says:

    I’m so over weeding! I have 1/4 acre garden and live in an area that doesn’t get a really cold winter, so plants keep on growing – weeds are shooting up faster than I can root them out. Would love to make a wrap dress and make it fit properly too! thanks for this giveaway.

  233. I’m so over responding to my whining workmate’s emails… I just want to get home and sew!

  234. I’m so over this week! Good thing that tomorrow is a holiday here in France, so it’s almost over!

  235. Patty says:

    Not to enter into the competition, but these are truly great patterns – going up to size 20, even better!!! I will look for them this w/e as I’ll be in London!

  236. Emma says:

    I’m s overdo itching and spluttering. I have a cold that’s now. N it’s third week and completely zapping my energy.
    Thes patterns are beautiful and I’d be delighted to win

  237. Love finding new patterns and designers. Sew over the big 4!

  238. Catherine Pritchard says:

    I am so over my 60th birthday celebrations! will nobody let me forget? Aaargh!
    Love the patterns and LOVE the fact that they go to size 20. Thanks for including larger ladies!

  239. Shelley Gibb says:

    Love the packaging. I’m so over bickering daughters, grrrrrrrrrr!

  240. Natalie says:

    I am just SO over this WEEK. It has definitely not been one I’ll remember fondly… Oh well, onwards and upwards – hopefully to make myself a new wrap dress!!

  241. redambition says:

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    I am so over my wedding… The actual ceremony and first reception are done, now there’s just a cocktail reception to go! Is it past being stressed time yet? I’d like to enjoy some wedded bliss…

  242. The pattern for the men’s ties reminds me of one Christmas, long ago, when every member of the family was wearing something my mother had made, including ties for the men. Lovely. I don’t know how she accomplished so much sewing. She must have been quicker than I am.

  243. luvmuffins43 says:

    I’m sooooo over waiting for the boiler man and being cold.
    My boilers been broken since sunday πŸ™

  244. KathleenS says:

    I’m so over November and it hasn’t even started yet! (It’s going to be a very busy month).

  245. Gemma Holtam says:

    Having just started to dabble in dressmaking I’m so over unflattering clothes. I’ve started to alter high neckline dresses to v necks, they look sew much better πŸ™‚

  246. Alison Turner says:

    Those patterns look lush!! I’m sew over not living in our house while we gut it and put it back together again. Three months of sofa surfing now between our lovely friend’s houses (carting my sewing machine with me) and I’m desperate to go home. Only managed a few quick makes as most of my time has been spent on DIY πŸ™

  247. I’m so over my university work getting in the way of my sewing!! I’d love the tie making kit. I only ever make girly things for myself and my family (we’re mostly girls), and I think the men get left, so a nice manly tie would be awesome!!

  248. Kerstin says:

    This weekend i’m so over knitting my own felted ballerinas using a pattern from DROPS design
    I’d love to win. Thus I could make a lovely winter dress for myself and christmas presents for all the males in the family.

  249. Lizzie says:

    They look lovely – I saw them on Tilly’s blog too!

    I am SO over there not being ANY fabric shops in the city, and having to head out to the West End/North London just to pick up some lining fabric or zips

  250. Bobbi says:

    Im so over this sinus infection – antibiotics for a month? Enough!

  252. Jean Ross-Timmes says:

    I am so over using a pan of cold water as a replacement for my dead fridge/freezer. Love 1940’s dresses, not so keen on 1940’s kitchens.

  253. senjiva says:

    I’m so over my workload. 14 shirts to take in by Saturday and a dozen other garments. I’d gladly drop it all to sew something nice for myself.

  254. Angela says:

    I am so “ovah” my storage unit. I realized I had been spending $165 per month on a storage unit that was basically housing…crap!!! Okay, and several boxes of patterns. I culled through most of them, donated four copy paper boxes full of patterns that I would never stitch up, got rid of the bed and bought a futon instead and converted my room to the sewing/stash area. Now I have some room to create and a few spare greenbacks to do so. Please toss my name into the hat for this giveaway.

  255. Erin says:

    So over nursing school! Agh!

  256. Lurve the new patterns…..
    I’m so over meeting-filled days. Is it the weekend yet?

  257. tillyflossy says:

    My Sew, So Soliloquy
    I’m sew over this week because:
    Saturday was a very busy day – several bridesmaids’ dresses sewn
    Social Sunday, celebrations for the 25th birthday of Adam my eldest son
    Sober day on Monday, working on accounts in the office till late.
    So on Tuesday I fitted four bridesmaids – too many dresses to lace!
    Wednesday it’s time for exercise, and so we go to indoor row
    On Thursday its sofa time for me, as I’m so out of get up and go!
    At last I’m sew over my week, it’s my day off, it’s time for me, Friday,
    I could sew all day if I was lucky with the β€œSew Over It” giveaway!

  258. Tamryn says:

    I am so over listening to politicians! It’s time for term limits. The wrap dress is lovely. Thanks for the giveaway.

  259. Joanne says:

    Woah that’s a beauty of a giveaway. This week I am so over dialing millions of numbers just to get my national insurance contribution paid while out of work. How many times? About six already!

  260. Sandyland says:

    I am “Sew Over” high school for my son. Ohhhh is all I can say. We didn’t have to put up with all the crap they have now. I’m glad it did it 30+ years a go. Maybe I’ll make them a tie if I win.

  261. OOOOh love this giveaway. What am I so over you ask? I think it is definitely cooking and cleaning over half term! Have just taken half term to sew myself a skirt and am going to try and sneak a quick make for me before school/ work starts next week.

  262. Mina Holliday says:

    I am so incredibly over moving. We’ve had our new place for 2 weeks but have been so busy we haven’t been able to bring anything by the house. Now we are down to the wire, having to be out and cleaned at the old place by Tuesday. Booo

  263. Erica says:

    I’m so over saving up for an overlocker…! Hurry up you pile of pennies and grow..;) x

  264. Caitlyn M. says:

    I’m so over work this week. (Who isn’t, right?) Come in early, stay late, miss lunch, work from home after hours. I’m supposed to be moving in two weeks and haven’t even started packing, let alone touched anything crafty to relieve the stress. I’d love a little pick-me-up for when I arrive in the new place. Thanks!

  265. Roz says:

    I am so over negative and unloving people! Give someone a compliment today and Spread the love:)

  266. redsilvia says:

    I am so over that today is Halloween and I’ve seen three xmas commercials on tv! Stop the insanity!

  267. Michelle says:

    I’m so over this week! All my sewing supplies are packed in boxes while we wait to close on our new house, and it’s driving me crazy! πŸ˜€ Thanks for the giveaway! I really can’t wait to get my paws on that wrap dress pattern.

  268. maryf1958 says:

    I’m so over anything and everything that gets in the way of my sewing and knitting time

  269. Lucy says:

    What lovely patterns. I am so over the clocks going back, causing dear son to wake up even earlier than normal!

  270. Daniela says:

    Wow, these patterns are so cute! I am London-based, so I have no excuse left anymore not to go to their shop! I would love to get my hands on the tie kit anyway, because I just promised my boyfriend the other day to make him a tie πŸ™‚ Coincidences, hihi.

  271. Sian says:

    I am ‘sew’ over my PhD! It is sucking up all my time, money and effort and leaving nothing left for fun. This would certainly cheer me up!

  272. Lynne says:

    I’m so over it this week, let me tell you why:
    Saturday was a busy day – several bridesmaid’s dresses sewn
    Social Sunday, celebrating the birthday of my eldest son
    So back to work on Monday, working on accounts until late.
    So onto Tuesday fitting bridesmaids – too many dresses to lace!
    Wednesday it’s exercise time and so we go to indoor row
    Thursday it’s sofa time for me as I’m so out of get up and go!
    At last I’m sew over my week, it’s me time, my day off on Friday –
    I could spend the day sewing if I was lucky in the Sew Over It giveaway!

  273. I would love to enter! I am *SO* over this week, the area manager turning up unexpectedly and putting me on the spot, the toilet in my new house has leaked all down the freshly plastered walls and the in-laws-to-be knocked a ruddy great hole in my wall!

  274. ahappyhermit says:

    I am so over fabric which doesn’t have an obvious wrong/right side!

  275. I’ve been eyeing up these patterns recently. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I am so over working on the most important project of the year at work and the majority aren’t taking it seriously!

  276. Crow says:

    I’m so over my dripping kitchen tap (fixed!), my toilet that refused to stop filling (fixed!), my back door that refused to open/lock (fixed!), just got the buzzing oven timer left!!! Would love the dress pattern.

  277. Kathleen says:

    It is fun reading all the comments.

    I am so over the prickly clients at work. I don’t know what is going on but they are in rare diva form this week which means we have to be extra sweet and extra fast at work. Ugh- almost the weekend. I agree with all the other comments- a new wrap dress would make it all better. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for such a lovely giveaway!

  278. hanndo says:

    I’mm so over lack op time. I started a new job last week and haven’t had time for anything yet besides work, eat and sleep. My dress had been lying in my bag waiting for my next sewing class to continue. And the next two weeks I’ll be traveling abroad for training. No sewing for me for two whole weeks, not een sewing classes πŸ™

  279. Karlene says:

    I am so over Halloween right now (only 2 1/2 hours more, and it’s done! WHEW!).

  280. sewsable says:

    I am so over the family not being completely well after the bug we all got.

  281. Theran says:

    I am so over working on my son’s Halloween costume when I have so many other things to do. I’ll never get over how happy he was with it! I am going to bed a happy, happy girl.

  282. Jessica says:

    I am sew over waiting for my very first sewing machine to arrive. I am so excited and have been reading your wonderful blog. I can’t wait to start sewing!

  283. Jaana - says:

    Hi Karen, love your blog and have been reading it for quite sometime. This giveaway looks fantastic. The title was just the right tone for me this week … I’m so over Star Trek, The Next Generation … Halloween is costume time and last week my son requested – uniforms from the show for Halloween … The official patterns were ordered and arrived last Friday … Rush out source fabric … Nice pant weight wool just like the official ones as seen on TV etc. the pips and squeaks were ordered as well … Those are the rank buttons, communicators etc. to sum up … Day one was spent re-configuring the instructions which were so incorrect (the fabric colours and pattern pieces were reversed on the instructions for a start). Everything figured out … Yep, good to go … Alteration request … Side seam pockets with invisible zips please for money and such for all the parties to be attended … No problem … Proceed with 2 adult uniforms – 77 pattern pieces, 6 invisible zippers, 2 separating zippers, piping made to match, and more instructions that were incorrect – to be corrected and we have uniforms as requested. I did get 3 full days to complete these uniforms. So glad the USS Enterprise has left my sewing studio … For this year anyway. I did get a big chuckle from the instructions on the patterns – some sewing skill required! Maybe I should write back with a comment – some instructional skill required! Or perhaps the operative word is “some”.

  284. Stacy says:

    I am so over mess in my house. Everywhere I look its mess, mess, mess.

  285. Sash says:

    I’m so over the relentless groundhog day of trying to keep our bathroom clean with 2 little boys also using it. I have cleaned the loo everyday this week because they suck at aiming. I neeeed something sewing time, and would love to be making something for me for a change!

  286. gccmom says:

    These patterns are so lovely. I am so over people who make you feel like the things you have devoted your life to are worthless.

  287. Katie. says:

    I’m so over having hardly any sewing time! And I’m sur my daughter is so over being plonked in front of the tv so mummy can have said sewing time!

  288. Alice says:

    I am ‘sew’ over how no sewing stockists in my neck of the woods stock awesome patterns like these meaning I have to make very select purchases online due to some steep shipping costs some places!

    • Alice says:

      Forgot to specify my ‘neck of the woods’ without which the above is a bit of a lame claim – Christchurch, NZ πŸ™‚

  289. Laura says:

    This week I am so over commuting for an hour in storms, only to find that there’s been a power cut at the office so I didn’t need to come in, and nobody has bothered to tell me. On the plus side: free day off πŸ™‚

  290. Elaine says:

    Hi there – I am so over sky high stiletto heels. I’m not on tour with Beyonce and I’m not on a streetcorner!

  291. punkmik says:

    I am so over people saying one thing and then doing another! Honesty for the win!
    Loving these. always wondered if the tea dress would ever be available! definitely going on the xmas list!

  292. SabineC says:

    I al so over Halloween party preparations (yes, ours does not happen before Nov 9… πŸ˜‰ but we’re expecting over 100 people…) and am so much looking forward to return to the relaxing & fulfilling act of sewing!
    Fabulous news, BTW, of Sew Over It releasing their own patterns! There are a few garments I have been coveting, especially as not living in the UK’ kinda prevents me from following a workshop at their place in person πŸ™‚

  293. Anne in Japan says:

    This dress is exactly what I want to make next! I’ve got some lovely snuggly, yet oddly elegant and drapey, brushed cotton fabric which would be perfect. I am so over not buying fabric because I don’t have a plan for it yet! I live in Japan at the moment and after a trip back to the UK I realised I should just go mad and stock up on the fabulous natural fabrics in great designs they have at reasonable prices here. Watch this (container-load sized) space..?

  294. Essi P says:

    Oh the kits and the patterns are pretty. I’m so over not having enough time for sewing. November will be a month of many finished projects!

  295. ginny says:

    loving the look of Lisa’s patterns and can’t wait to tell all my students. wanting to make the wrap dress myself as have the perfect printed jersey for it.
    Today i am ‘so over’ excited about participating in the Farnham Maltings first ever textiles festival this sunday and of show casing the work of our amazing sewing students.
    thanks Karen x

  296. I’m so over spending time redecorating my spare room so it can be my sewing room. Just want to get on with the sewing now!

  297. Nerissa says:

    I am so over driving! When will my car learn to drive itself. Then I can knit while commuting!

  298. Joelle says:

    Those pattern illustrations are so cute, and I love that wrap around dress! I’m over being sick and having no energy–I would love to jump into a new project!

  299. Sandra says:

    Love the patterns, would love to try one! So over all the rain we have been getting, although makes for good sewing weather!!

  300. Vee says:

    So over moving house! Worst game ever invented. Sewing mojo is in one of these boxes somewhere…

  301. Lisa says:

    I am so over Christmas and its not even here yet!!! LOVE the patterns though!!

  302. Debbie says:

    Love the patterns and always love supporting the indie designers. Will definitely try one of these even if I am not lucky enough to win one!

    I am so over running, it is interfering with my sewing time!! But the New York Marathon is on Sunday, then back to normal!!!

  303. Lynette says:

    I am so over waiting for my birthday. Its Monday!

  304. PoldaPop says:

    I’m so over the rain. There’s been way too much of it this week and I’ve had to walk places with slow children while we all slowly get drenched. Bleck.

    Lovely patterns! I especially like the 1940s tea dress . . . that may have to go on my wish list!

  305. orangmerajut says:

    Those are cute patterns, how ever could I miss this pattern maker? Oh, yes because I have been moving apartements and there is still so much todo in the new one. I am sooooooooo over unpacking!

  306. Hannah says:

    Aaah Sew over it introduced me to dressmaking! I am super excited about their patterns!
    I am so over doing work for my Masters this week… I want some sewing time!!!

  307. Sarah C says:

    I am sew over spending my weekend being a taxi service for my children. I gave them a bus and train timetable and sent them forth. I am spending my time instead catching up on my favorite sewing blogs and of course worrying if they’ll get home ok !!!

  308. Gaenor says:

    I am so over family holidays! Have just finished a week in wet and cold Cornwall with my husband and 3 (lovely) children. Got ’em all back home with only one case of actual car sickness. Now I can’t wait for them to all get back to school/preschool so I can sit down and do nothing for a bit…

  309. Tamsinwp says:

    Would love to win the wrap dress – I have the perfect material waiting in my stash! I am currently so over the sewing of a Cambie dress. It seems like it has taken forever – I hope I like it when I wear it out for my anniversary dinner this evening!

  310. Mickey says:

    I would love to try the wrap dress and the tie pattern for my husband. Thanks for the chance to win the patterns!

  311. Laura says:

    The patterns look cute! Thanks for the giveaway. Let’s see, this week I am over the flies that keep appearing in my house. I clean, I swear!

  312. Katie says:

    I am so over not having enough time to sew!

  313. Christina Mano says:

    Great giveaway πŸ™‚ I for one, am so over family and friend obligations… I hosted 2 dinners this week and had family staying over for 3 nights, and tomorrow I’m attending my nephew’s birthday dinner. Though I love my friends and family, it will be nice to get some quiet time next week πŸ˜‰

  314. So exciting! I am so over all the Halloween candy lying around everywhere I go, tempting me into more chocolate and nutty decadence.

  315. TLK says:

    I am so over clothes shopping in major department store – there are no longer any sales clerks, just cashier who seem to think they are doing you a favor when they ring up the sale. All the more reason to develop sewing skills!

  316. I’m so over the weather, it’s supposed to be Spring but it feels like Summer already!

  317. Andrea says:

    These patterns are beautiful – I’m already mentally reorganising my small collection of sewing patterns (currently unorganised) and reserving spaces for the Tea Dress and Wrap dress pattern as these would suit my style and shape perfectly.
    I have a dog who’s almost 15 and is starting to get some bladder problems which means I’m getting up several times a night to let her out only to find she’s already peed on the kitchen floor or carpets. I’m so over mopping it up half asleep/awake at 3am / 6am but I think this is going to be the norm now – I think I’m just going to have to use this time to mentally orgsanise my crafty makes (instead of doing it during office hours!)

  318. niema quick says:

    I am so over rain, but that poses as a problem as I live in Seattle πŸ˜‰

  319. I would love to win this giveaway!
    I’m totally over getting to work in the morning and only getting through the day thinking about working on a dress (that’s been 3 months in the making), and when I get home not having the energy to even plug in my sewingmachine, let alone sewing!

  320. Jacinta says:

    I am so over the silk lace shawl I have just finished knitting, the end result is beautiful but I have had too many ripping it back episodes, time to do some sewing me thinks;-)

  321. Cecilia says:

    I am sew over buying shop bought dresses thAt don’t fit/flatter, I need to sew again

  322. Rebecca Neale says:

    Hi, I am so over planning a bunch of lessons on the Stone Age for year 3! It is taking up all if my free time and leaving me no time to sew, crochet and make christmas gifts!

  323. Frances says:

    These patterns rock! I am so over the crazy up-and-down weather here in Melbourne. I wish the weather would just heat up already, because I’d really like to wear my new creations.

  324. Amy says:

    I am so over this silly work project from my old job that’s been hanging over my head for… years now is it?! Oh my!

  325. sanja says:

    I would love this giveaway! I am so over this dark and wet weather affecting my crafting mojo:(.

  326. Angie Barnes says:

    Wow. Please include me in the giveaway. Lol With all the posts, I highly doubt I will win. But I still would like a shot.

  327. I am so over reading about all these great sewing classes and not finding one in the evening that I can attend.

  328. Trish says:

    Wonderful patterns, please include me in. I am so over the moon with the idea of a wrap dress using less than 3 metres. Bring it on! And thanks for the heads up on another amazing independent pattern maker.

  329. Ann Johnston says:

    I am over packing. Moving is the pits – can’t sew because I’m too busy putting everything in boxes!!!

  330. Colleen says:

    I am so over knitting this jacket–and I’m less than half finished. Partly because I know I’ll wind up re-knitting the back from the armholes up. The only thing that keeps me going is that I really want the finished product and sheer bloody-mindedness.

  331. Amy says:

    I am so over the lack of light… sunset at 4.30pm is just sad.

  332. Deborah Morrison says:

    I am so over low rise pants.

  333. amanda says:

    I’m so over studying and catching up on homework–except I’m still not caught up, boo

  334. Esther says:

    I’m so over fixing my car:(
