#vintagepledge Round-Up and Giveaway

Guys! Your appetite for joining in with the Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge (#vintagepledge on Twitter) has quite literally blown me away! I announced my idea less than a month ago and there are already over 100 of you joining in! To say I'm delighted is an understatement. Not only that, but some of you have been ridiculously quick off the mark, so I'm excited to share a round-up of finished makes below.

But first, a cheeky giveaway to get even more of you on board....mwahahahahaha! Plus, I've not had a chance to fully participate in Debi's wonderful Sew Grateful Week this year, so I'm hoping this will make amends...even if I am posting it on the wrong day!

  2. Thank You!!! Maybe your Simplicity 2382 is what I've been waiting for to banish my 1940's blouse hoodoo!! Such a pity the McCalls 6875 isn't my size - such a cute bodice ;) I've just sewn up my 1970's option - next is the 60's (I'm working backwards!) http://dreamingdashie.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/replacing-rtw-simplicity-6672-black-maxi.html

  4. Ooh, that are some stunning creations you're showcasing there! I'd love to try that 70's pattern, even though it seems a bit on the smaller side. Would be a good opportunity to try some pattern grading :)

  10. I'd like to make up the McCalls 1960s. It looks pretty versatile and I think I can do an FBA to fit. I'm currently working on muslins for the repro Simplicity 2154 pencil skirt and blouse combo. Email: senjivastudio (at)gmail (dot) com.

  17. I really like the McCalls pattern -and it's my size too. And, what is really funny, I found the same Style Pattern last spring (http://finishedthread.blogspot.ca/2013/05/the-70s-are-growing-on-me.html) and last summer I made a dress from the pattern in the lower right of the same frame as the Style pattern (http://finishedthread.blogspot.ca/2013/09/two-muslins-one-wearable-one-needswork.html) but it needs a bit of work.
    But I digress-sorry. Thank you for hosting such a cool giveaway. squirrelsox (at) gmail (dot) com

  18. I am going to stick to my self-promise for the year (to create wearable cake (not frosting)) and choose: 1960s - McCall's 6875 - Size 18. I need more workwear, as I spend most of my time there, and feel that dresses are much more flattering on my pear shaped body. Feeling good = looking good, and so far I have been getting many positive comments for my me-made dresses :)

  22. I love the McCalls 6875, buttons, cute sleeves, and two perfect skirt options. Plus, it would give me a chance to try some grading in the bust, down to a 36. Thank you for the giveaway!

  25. The Mccall 6875 is cute, though I would have to grade it up just a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I LOVE the Simplicity 2382! I think I might use this white and pink flocked cotton for it!

    And I believe I need to photograph my Dapper Day dress better so I can have a submission for #vintagepledge!

  31. I've been meaning to sign up! I've got so many vintage patterns.

    Great giveaway!! If I won I would like the Butterick Retro, as I am trying to sew all of them.

  34. I've been looking for a pattern just like the Simplicity blouse, ever since I snapped up a remnant of yellow spot seersucker. I'd love to make it up into this. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Please enter me for the 1960s McCall's dress! Not that I need any more vintage patterns, but I'm always on the look out for a good shirtwaister pattern, and I love the details on this! (I've also nearly finished my first vintage pattern too). dibulous at gmail point com

  36. I'd LOVE to win the Style 4530 from the 70s! It reminds me of a dress worn by my super-cool babysitter (read: neighbour's daughter) when I was a girl circa 1973/4, which was in a native-american style print with embroidery around the neckline. I'd do something similar, maybe add some beadwork. Retro heaven! sarah@roqs.co.uk

  37. Great patterns! I would love to win Style 4530. It is my 'style' and also very close to my size, so I think I could do great things with it. I like version 1 with the contrasting placket and version 3 with the big puffy sleeves. Fabulous! I also promise to sew them up for Vintage Pattern Sewalong. What a great idea!
    I'm also having a giveaway on my blog, feel free to enter if there is something that interests you: http://gjeometry.com/2014/02/24/sew-grateful-giveaway-how-about-some-red-and-some-threads

  39. I'd love to win the Butterwick B 4919 juat because it goes down to a size six. I rarely find anything that is fitted and for very small chests! Lots of inspirational projects so far.

    ReplyDelete
  40. That blouse is so cute. Love to win this.

  41. I love Simplicity 2382! I think version 3 (on the girl at the bottom) is very Betty from Bomb Girls! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I loved McCalls 6875 because it has vintage + modern look, who wouldn't like to get a modern look with a dash of vintage look. And also it has collar pattern, with the help of it I can make designer collar and add embellishments, Lace etc! Thank you for the giveaway. Keep blogging :)

  43. I would make Reproduction Butterick 4919 SO HARD! It's just the kind of dress I'm always drawn to in the summer--and I live in Louisiana, where the summer lasts a ridiculously long time.
