My Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge
So I have just found out about Marie's Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge via her guest post on By Gum, By Golly, and I've decided to join up, but add my own spin seeing as how we're half way through the year and I already have 8 important sewing projects lined up..
Like Marie, I am an avid collector of vintage sewing patterns. I adore the glamour of the illustrations, and, living in a country where there is a substantially smaller amount of vintage still available than a lot of the rest of the world, the idea of getting my hands on some vintagey-goodness that not only fits and is to my custom requirements, but is also affordable is too tempting to resist.
Lately I've also been bemoaning the lack of "basic" clothing pieces in my wardrobe to mix-and-match with my many patterned and/or statement pieces, but I just keep on sewing with pretty florals and other patterns!!
So, my personal Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge is: sew at least 3 vintage patterns from my stash using ONLY block-coloured fabrics.
This way, I should be able to get a start on actually using some of the gorgeous patterns I own (not that it'll make much of a dent but hey, it's a start!), and at the same time fill some glaring gaps in my wardrobe.
Sounds like a winner to me! Now where to begin...
Who else doing this pledge?
