Comment on the blog or connect with us on Twitter to win one of two Lisette sewing patterns by Liesl + Co.

Liesl + Co. is perhaps best known for Oliver + S, their gorgeous collection of children’s sewing patterns and fabrics. Their Lisette patterns, however, appeal to a decidedly older audience: the style-conscious seamstress. For more information, visit their website.

Until Tuesday, June 7th at 12 p.m. EST we are giving away two of their gorgeous patterns. The first pattern is a Passport Dress & Jacket, a downtown spin on uptown chic. The second pattern is a Portfolio Dress, Tunic & Pant, a chic, multi-seasonal favorite. Two winners will be selected to receive one pattern each.

To enter, answer the following question: Where would be the places to wear the garments created from the patterns featured?

If submitting an answer via Twitter, be sure to include the @BurdaStyle tag and the hashtag #comment2win.

Good Luck!

    I think the portfolio dress is wearable to work if the right fabrics are used to make it! :)

    I’d love to win! How exciting that these will be available in so many places! Of course, there isn’t a Simplicity retailer within two hours of me but I will definitely will be picking up these patterns. Yay! :)

    All the pieces look like they have strong ties to the 1960s. If I ever make them, I will wear them to a lunch date with Audrey Hepburn. I hope Paul Varjak won’t be coming; three’s a crowd you know! :)

    Everywhere! To the shops, out for coffee, day trips to the city… their beauty is in their versatility.

    I think they have spring written all over them. I might wear them to a spring baby shower.

    These patterns definitely have the “girl about town” look. Perfect for a sunny day & lunch in the park :)

    Hee hee! I just bought the pattern for dress/tunic/jacket. It’s time to use of the stash on simple things that will look breezy and fun.

    Both patterns have pieces that would look great for a day out on the town. Shopping, dining, whatever, you could do it in style. Plus, they look pretty light and breathable, which is perfect for strolling about in New Orleans weather.

    I would wear them everywhere in Lübeck, so they could see a part of Europe. Plus the weather is just warming up here, so they’d be perfect all day long!

    I’d wear the dresses and shirts (especially the ones with pockets!) every day. The pockets would be perfect for stashing things on the go — like keys, id, debit card, etc. They remind me of comfort and sunshine. :)

    I’d wear them around town doing chores, out on walks with the family, digging around in the garden, etc.

    Throw in the pants and/or jacket and you’ve got yourself a nice, business causal outfit for the office or a semi-formal outfit for a not-too-dressy affair.

    I’d wear the portfolio dress, tunic, & pants to the playground (well, not all 3 at the same time, but you get the idea). They look like they’d be comfy enough for toddler chasing but without sacrificing style :)

    I would wear them anywhere and everywhere. I keep planning to make some clothes for me and I’m sure that when I do I’ll wear them all the time!

    I’ve been eying these patterns for some time now. I’m trying to imagine a place I wouldn’t wear them. The tunic dress looks like it could become my go to everyday dress.

    I would love to wear pattern 2245 to a job interview! I think it says “Hey- I’m classy and stylish, but also fun and upbeat.” Who wouldn’t want to hire you? Or I might make something like this for my mother- she goes to a lot of weddings. With the right fabric, it would be great for the small country weddings she normally attends. Pattern 2209 in my opinion looks like something I would wear when I wanted to forget the stresses of my life and hang out with someone I might have a little crush on ;) Its not too revealing, and since I’m a fairly modest person I think it would be the perfect “Date Night” outfit!

    The Passport dress is perfect for my little cousin’s kindergarten graduation! And the I could wear the Portfolio dress to my company’s summer intern barbeque! Love them!
