End-of-Year #VintagePledge Prizes Are Back

It sure has been a little while, but I'm delighted to be back with good news for #VintagePledge friends!

Despite my rather laissez-faire approach since #VPJuly, you've been busy sewing bees and we'd like to acknowledge your wonderful work with another End-of-Year Competition! First I’ll talk you through the fantastic prizes, categories and our guest judges, then I’ll explain how to enter...


With dresses being the most popular #VintagePledge entry, we're offering up a prize each for two lucky winners. £50 each to spend on anything online at either Sew Over It or Weaver Dee.


T-shirts, blouses, shirts, as well as crop, halter and any other tops you've made will be in with a chance of winning £50 to spend online at Sew Essential.

This category covers all bottoms, including culottes, jumpsuits and playsuits, with the prize being £50 to spend online at Girl Charlee Fabrics.

Outerwear & Accessories
We're recognising the best of your coats, hats, gloves, scarves and all other accessories including toys and homewares, with £50 to spend online at Remnant Kings.

Best Pattern Adaptation
Creativity goes a long way, so if you've refashioned, modernised or hacked your vintage pattern in any way we want to know about it. You could win £30 to spend online at Beyond Measure and a carefully selected fabric kit from Sew Wardrobe.

Finally, we're looking for the wow-factor...an extravagant wedding dress, evening gown perhaps, coat, suit, etc! If you impress you could win a £100 fabric hamper from Minerva Crafts and three patterns of your choice from Decades of Style.


Kerry and I are very excited to have Kate and Rachel of The Foldline fame to help us pick this year's worthy winners...thank you SO much ladies!!!


Entering the End-of-Year competition couldn't be easier! Everything already pinned to the dedicated #VintagePledge board is eligible and you just need to pin any new entries you have. If you don't already have permission to pin, then just get in touch with your Pinterest username/email address and I'll give you the relevant rights.

You don’t need a blog to take part and if you don't have a Pinterest account, just email me your picture(s) and I can add them for you.


•    You can enter as many items as you like for each category
•    Please only upload one picture per entry

Closing Date

The competition will close on the 31 December 2016 at midnight GMT. We will announce the winners in January 2017.


Kids clothing fits into the same categories as above, but please comment below or email me if you have any questions about the competition.

Right, I'm off to try and complete my modest #VintagePledge this year...until then, happy sewing and happy pinning!


  1. I have just finished a vintage coat which I am very proud of. I have tried to put it on the pin board but I can't - IT skills have failed me...again!

    1. Absolutely stunning Jo!!! I've pinned it for you, thanks so much for sharing :o)

  2. Great reminder. Could you please give me 'Nathalie Claes' permission to pin on the 2016 #VintagePledge pinterest board.
    I made it I finally made my first dress using a vintage pattern.

  3. Calico Laine (calicolaine.co.uk) is a good place to start. They have an excellent selection of fabric, buttons, zippers, and other materials you might need. They might offer a deal if you buy in bulk, too.

  4. Hi Marie, could you please give me permission to post my makes to your board? My Pinterest name is Fadanista. Thanks.

    1. All done now Sue, can't wait to see what you pin :o)
