Friends, can you believe we're three quarters through this year's Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge?!? How are you getting on with your makes? Over 300 pins to our #vintagepledge board suggests that you're doing swimmingly! I'm four makes down with one to go, but I'm hoping I'll exceed my own expectations to make up for falling short last year.
Your Makes in September
How Tasha managed to make a sarong dress out of a 1950s bralet pattern is beyond me, but I the result is pure bombshell genius!
Angela also achieved stunning results by hacking. She added a kimono style top to her 1960s jumpsuit pattern and the forest green, wool crepe she used couldn't be more perfect.
If you could capture the essence of Summer with a dress, then Carolanne has done a sterling job with her breezy take on a 1960s dress pattern.
I long to fill my wardrobe with stylishly simple tops like this one by Charlotte. She used a vintage reproduction pattern and I think the result is so, so wearable.
Last, but certainly not least, Jo made a cute little jacket! She overcame her fabric issues by choosing a luxurious lining, so it looks just as beautiful on the inside as it does on the outside.

We also enjoyed a generous discount and giveaway. Simplicity offered up a 25% discount on their vintage reproduction pattern range and Beyond Measure gave away a £30 voucher to one lucky winner...who is Bec from Bows and Bunnies! Congratulations Bec!!! I'll pass your details onto Grace who will arrange your voucher.
