Boy, has it been a while since I’ve shared a finished project here!?! I have a growing stash of vintage patterns, yet my elaborate plans get put on the backburner each time I get swept up in the frenzy surrounding the release of a new indie pattern. To start redressing this balance I’m making a very simple Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge – to sew up at least five of my vintage patterns during 2014.
There are already 40+ plus people joining me and although I may be barking up the wrong street here, as you’re all such avid vintage pattern stitchers, will you sign up too? There are no strict rules and you don’t even have to set yourself a numerical target. You can join in if you feel you’re not doing justice to your vintage or reproduction sewing patterns, if you want to achieve a personal best, or even if you want to try your hand at a vintage pattern for the very first time!
If you’re game, share your plans in a comment on my blog (or below) and/or make a pledge on your own blog. Don’t forget to share your finished makes with me throughout the year, either in the comments, by using #vintagepledge on Twitter or via email – I’ll tweet about them and pin them to this board to keep us all motivated and to inspire others. If enough people join in and share finished makes, I’ll also compile a few round-ups on my blog throughout the year.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some of the stunning patterns I’m toying with…
