It would appear that you really like Knip Mode’s design for the April 2008 skirt. I have to give all the praise to the designers at Knip Mode. I couldn’t have made this up if I tried. What I really like is that I haven’t seen anything like it anywhere.
Many of you have asked how to get a hold of this edition of Knip Mode. I got it through the lovely and generous-of-her-time Sigrid. The only resources I know of are ebay (check ebay.nl too). You can also try emailing Knip Mode for a back issue. Outside of the Netherlands can email firstname.lastname@example.org I understand that they will respond in English.
I’m also willing to give away my tracing of the pattern. It’s a 38 with a two size upgrade in the lower thigh (not hip). I’m normally a BWOF 38 in the waist and this was a little big.
If you would like to be entered, please leave a comment below. There is a caveat: you must have commented on the blog more than once in the past year and swear you’ll make it. No pattern hoarding please I’ll do the random drawing on Monday. If you’re wondering if I’m allowed to give it away, I’m not really sure. ETA: Diva Els emailed me privately with a translation. I’ve shot off an email to Knip Mode and will keep you posted. I checked the copyright:
Knip Mode behoudt het recht -tenzij anders overeengekomen met de auteur- ingezonden materiaal in te korten en aan te passen. Dit geldt zowel voor tekst- als muziek- en beeldmateriaal.
Een bezoeker/ster van Knip Mode mag geen auteursrechtelijke beschermde werken of andere in Knip Mode opgeslagen informatie openbaar maken of verveelvoudigen zonder toestemming van Sanoma-Uitgevers BV (ook niet via een eigen netwerk).
And I don’t read Dutch. But, I’m not trying to make money from it and if it gets the word of Knip Mode out, I’m all about it. If you tell me that this says ‘Don’t do it’, I’ll void the drawing.
Caveat #2: I am slow as all heck when it comes to mailing. I go to the PO once a month and it may take me several weeks to mail to you. Those last two Patrones giveaways are still waiting and Arielle waited several months before I got to the post office.
On the cutting table: I’ve got a pair of pants cut out. But, we all know that lined pants take me at least three weeks to work out. I’ll try and show a little more about them over the weekend. We’ve got a long weekend coming up for MLK and I’m taking off Tuesday. So, maybe we can make three weeks become four days.
