Vintage Pattern Pledge

I have decided after reading Marie from A Stitching Odssey that I will join her with a Vintage Pattern Pledge.
The requirement is to sew up 5 of my vintage patterns. I have many in my Etsy store and some that I have been holding onto to sew for myself.


               Here is the first one that I will sew. Recently purchased from Etsy. Simplicity 4137
Vintage 50s slip and petticoat sewing pattern. Simplicity 4137. Size 14. 0384

This vintage slip with petticoat is for my daughter to wear with her Think Pink Dress.

With only pledging to sew 6 in 2014 this is a very reasonable goal for myself. I can easily get distracted by new patterns and sew alongs, and this will give me more of a deadline.  

 I have picked out these for myself.

  1. I send wishes for time and energy to succeed in your projects. I remember the times I had such projects to do, making clothes for myself. You have surpassed me in technique, I am sure. Can't wait to see the results.

    1. Thanks! I am not sure I have passed you in technique and your hand stitching skills will always be much better than mine.

  2. Oh my, what beautiful patterns you've picked! Can't wait to see them...thanks so much for joining in!!!
