Hello friends! Last week flew by in a blur, but there's no more room for slacking as I'm hosting this month's Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge activities! If you missed out on any February's #vintagepledge fun, Kestrel Makes has shared a comprehensive round-up.
Monday 23 March - 1930s Inspiration on A Stitching Odyssey
Tuesday 31 March - Round-up and Giveaway Winner Announced on A Stitching Odyssey
6 Makes from February
Boy, do you guys mean business this year! Just two months in and the #vintagepledge Pinterest Board is already overflowing with your wonderful makes! I found it really hard to pick just a few to highlight, but I've given it my best shot...
Now, I don't want to say that #vintagepledge has peaked too early, but how can we beat an outing at the Oscars?!? Julie of Jet Set Sewing made herself a Madame Gres design out of merino wool jersey for a glamorous, yet effortless, red carpet look!
Prolific knitter Andi, of Untangling Knots, set aside her knitting needles for #vintagepledge and stitched up a reproduction pattern in a delightful strawberry-print.
Michelle, ma belle...tres bien ensemble combined vintage and contemporary patterns for a dramatic look, channelling her inner Ulyana Sergeenko.
A wrap dress made of faux suede?!? Sara of Mixed Emotions was truly inspired with this gorgeous combination, which brings me yet another step closer to embracing 1970s styles!
Evie of La Couturiere Dimanche made what can only be described as the sweetest maternity dress ever. And best of all, it was a 100% stash-buster!
Just Sew Jenna introduced me to a brand new concept - dungalottes! Doesn't her little girl (and photo-bombing doggy) look adorable in these vintage-inspired dungaree culottes?
