Your #VintagePledge Makes

Can you believe we're three quarters of the way through 2017...and this year's #VintagePledge? I was making great progress with my plans (here and here) before I stalled, and now we're in the middle of some pretty major building work which has rendered me sewing room-less!  

I don't really need to ask how you're getting on though, because from the looks of the dedicated Pinterest board, you're killing it! So much so, that I reckon a mini round-up of your recent makes will inspire those in myself.


Gwenstella Made's reproduction 1950s lemon drop dress 

Annotations of Jenny's 1930s linen cape dress

Jess Sews Clothes' 1978 jersey cowl-neck dress  

Carolyn's 1960s reproduction flamingo dress

Jade Juney's 1960s denim shift dress

Andi Satt's 1950s reproduction 'shirtdress'

Nicole Needles' 1950s leopard-print pedal pushers

By Gum, By Golly's 1950s-inspired outfit

Handmade By Heather B's Pendleton 49er knock-off

By the way, there's still time to take part in the #VintagePledge as it's a year-long challenge!


  1. So many beauties! Better get cracking, I need to sew 2 more patterns to meet my pledge ;o)

  2. Hi there, I'd like to join the pledge! I thought I wouldn't be able to take part but my last three makes have been vintage. How can I participate?

  3. So many wonderful pieces! I love Jenny's yellow 1930s dress of course. It's a good job she lives nearly three hours away from me otherwise I might go and raid her wardrobe for it! xx

  4. I am so sad I didn't end up participating (or blogging at all, really) this year. Too much life stuff going on. I'm much more free in 2018 so I'm already furiously making vintage sewing plans. Do you need any help in running it next year?
