Huzzah - a giveaway!

Fripperie just reached 100 sales, and 100 shop hearts!  So to celebrate, and to thank all you fine folks, it's time for a giveaway!  I'll get right to the good part - here's the pattern i'm giving away:
It's Advance 8511, from about 1958, in a 34" bust.  Those little pleats at the neckline are awfully cute, no?

All you need to do to enter is to stop by the shop, pick out your favorite item, and leave a link to it in a comment here.  I'll draw for a winner on Wednesday, August 4, at 3:00 p.m. EDT, so be sure to make your choice and leave your comment by then!

(For those who want all the details on the pattern, it's cut and complete, pattern pieces all in nice shape; the instruction sheet has had a drawing cut out, which also took out the directions for hemming the blouse, but that part shouldn't be hard to fake.)
