The Vintage Pattern Pledge

Do you have a lot of vintage patterns that you haven't sewn up?  But they are so tempting and so pretty right?  But then they get bumped for a new indie pattern all the coolkids are sewing up.

This is exactly what I am like and Marie from A Stitching Odyssey feels the same!

She has started the Vintage Pattern Pledge here and I am joining in!

During 2014, I, Joanne, will sew up at least five garments from vintage patterns.

I haven't gone for 5 patterns as I am not sure if that will work for me - if i find ones that work well, I may make more than one version!  But I'll probably choose at least 5 patterns to give myself a choice.

I'll be posting over the next few days with the patterns I am planning to use.  And if you are up for this challenge, stay tuned for the Pattern Pyramid and you can grab yourself a choice of more vintage patterns!

Are you in?   


  1. I'm in with you ;) My pledge is: I, MaciNic of the Somnolent Dachshund pledge to sew 5 vintage patterns from my stash by my 2 year blog-iversary in May 2015.
    and for my own personal bonus points, I'll aim for one from the 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's & 70's… by May 2015. By the end of this year, I will have completed 3 and made plans for the remainder.
    I have far too many patterns (I plan to compete with "all-the-patterns-Heather") & love the challenge to sew some of them up!

    1. yaay! can't wait to see (love the name of your blog by the way!)

  2. Eeep, so pleased you're joining in!
