My #VintagePledge 2017!
Hi pinups!

I'm super excited to announce my plans for this year's Vintage Pledge! Hosted by Marie of A Stitching Odyssey. A wonderful vintage style sew along, creating your own goal and spurring yourself and others on to create some beautiful retro garments in 2017!

Instead of sewing true vintage, I'll be going down the reproduction route of sewing from reprinted patterns. For example the reprinted ranges of 1950s and 1960s patterns which are currently for sale from brands such as Butterick & Simplicity.

Some of my Vintage Pledge contenders!
I'm doing this instead of sewing from true vintage patterns, as I just don't have any original patterns in my stash and don't have the time to trawl eBay or Etsy, and my local charity stores & vintage shops are very lacklustre in that department. But there are some gorgeous reprinted original patterns you can buy right now to save yourself some time!

For Summer my favourite era is the 1950s, my goal is to sew a small handful of dresses from reproduction vintage patterns that look like real vintage dresses! I'm obsessed with the fashion on Call the Midwife, so would love to create a small selection of day dresses that could pass for true vintage.


My #VintagePledge 2017

During 2017, I, Abi of The Crafty Pinup sewing blog, pledge to sew at least 4 reproduction vintage dresses!

Thanks for reading, pinups!
