Vintage Pattern Pledge

Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge

I love a good vintage pattern, although confess to have only sewn reproductions until now. So when I spotted Marie, at A Stitching Odyssey’s Vintage Pattern Pledge it seemed like the perfect excuse to crack out some of those patterns I’ve been ogling.

These.

So it would be such a shame for them to go to waste. Therefore I, Louise Tomlinson-Sylvest, do pledge that in 2014 I will sew up at least 3 of these patterns.

I’m not being super adventurous on how many I’ll make because money is always tight for me and I’ll probably have to buy fabric specially for these projects and therefore quantity will be limited. I’m liking the look of the 60’s sheath- Simplicity 7508 (the pattern has a 1968 copyright). Stay tuned to see how I get on.
