Vogue 5671 – my first #vintagepledge of five

Well hello there, it’s been nearly six months since I last posted here! Why do I remember this so precisely? Because back in February is when I shared my Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge with you all. Heartwarmingly, well over 100 people have joined me and their inspiring progress is well-documented on my dedicated #vintagepledge Pinterest board!

As for me, I’m somewhat lagging behind on my five pledged makes, but at least I’m finally one down! I chose the rather stunning Vogue 5671 from my stash, but replaced the skirt with a fuller one from a modern pattern. I love the wiggle silhouette, but I definitely don’t feel confident enough in my shape to pull it off. I’m pretty smitten with the result though…despite the accidental 90s vibe attributed by my fabric choice!

If you too need some motivation to sew up some of your vintage patterns, you have until the end of the year to join and complete the Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge. If you’re on Twitter, make sure you stay up to date using #vintagepledge!
