    I only get to pick one?!?! I’d have to go with the Oolong – it seams ;) like it would be the best fit for my body.

    I would definitely go with Ceylon- what a gorgeous vintage inspired dress and why not have a cup of Ceylon Tea to go with it.

    I’d buy Peony, because a bateau neckline is very flattering on me.

    I don’t know which I would buy I have most of them already….I guess Negroni, though I’d have to grade it up to fit my hubby.

    I’d use the gift certificate to buy the Lady Grey coat for a friend who has recently started sewing. I have this pattern and love it – I think it would make a great gift for someone who is nervous about sewing a first coat!

    Since I already have Sencha and the Clover pants are part of the giveaway, I would buy the Negroni Men’s shirt pattern. One of my New Year Resolutions is to start sewing more for my husband. I already sew a ton for myself and two little girls I think it is about time I start making him something other than boxer shorts!

    The Clover Pants…Oh wait, that’s one of the prizes! In that case, I would buy Nutmeg because I love lingerie patterns.

    I think it’d be fun to sew the Nutmeg loungewear set or the Lady Grey coat. Underwear & Outerwear.
