Firstly after careful consideration its time to make my Vintage Pledge 2016 my Vintage Pledge 2016

During 2016, I, Melanie Keable pledge to work towards sewing a vintage inspired wardrobe. As part of this I will sew 6 blouses from vintage or reproduction vintage patterns, and a vintage or repro vintage jacket.

I think these are the key items I am worried about making for my new wardrobe. I think making the pledge will give me some added incentive to work on this. The fist shirt pattern I will be looking to work with is simplicity 1590 retro 40s blouse featured in my last post.

I am also planning on taking part in the big vintage sew along hosted by the McCall pattern company. I have selected McCalls 7086 1960s dress. I really like the silhouette options, and the gathered details across the front waistband. I think this is a vintage style pattern I would wear on a regular basis. The temptation to go through a buy lots of the patterns selected for the vintage sew along is huge! However, I’m going to resist until after this one is made.
