#vintagepledge - A Feature and a Round-up

Hello friends, I hope you've enjoyed the long bank holiday weekend if you're in England! I wish every working week could be a short one, but not even the prospect of work can dampen my spirits today, because my Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge is featured over at By Gum, By Golly! To have my little pledge supported by Tasha, one of my favourite vintage sewing and knitting icons, is really heart-warming. And if you tune in again tomorrow, I have a guest post from Tasha herself sharing her reasons for sewing vintage. Pretty exciting stuff, no?

Speaking of exciting, there's well over 100 of you joining in with my Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge and your beautiful projects are coming in thick and fast!!! Check out my dedicated Pinterest board if you don't believe me. Because I'm so overwhelmed by your enthusiasm, here's a round-up of your makes (following on from my first one here), but do visit Pinterest for direct links to each project and blogger. 

Perfect dresses for Spring / Summer

Lots of chic, navy and black numbers!

Pretty tops and a spot of selfless stitching

Gorgeous separates and cute kids' dresses

A special mention has to go to Fadanista for her nine makes to date!!!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all SO much for joining in! I look forward to see what else you come up with in the remaining eight months of the challenge...and to finally make a start on my own pledge of course!

Keep up to date with #vintagepledge on Twitter and Pinterest.


  1. Wow! I'm so impressed by all these makes!

  2. Ooh I love this, everyone has been so busy! Nice round up x

  3. Such a fantastic range of projects! #vintagepledge has really helped me to consider ways to use the older patterns I have but was intimidated to make. Really enjoying seeing everyone's makes!

  4. Thanks for including my mad men dress! It's great to see such a range of makes from different time periods. I'm a sure when you say vintage pattern that a lot of people think 1950s full skirted or 60s shift but your line up shows that's not the case!

    1. Yes, very good point Jo! Love your Mad Men dress!

  5. Thank you for the round-up Marie! It's nice to see my makes amongst all the vintage projects :)
