But it turns out I've not really touched any in my collection (apart from this super star pencil skirt which I've made twice - in floral stretch cotton and lace).
All of which leaves me feeling like a pretty bad owner... leaving those lovely vintage patterns unloved for so long just doesn't feel right.
Now it's been a while since I've really sat down and gave myself a sewing challenge. I mean, come on, sewing with a super active bambino is already quite enough of a challenge. Thank you very much.
So it was a pretty brilliant coincidence that I randomly stumbled across the 2015 Vintage Sewing Pledge (well, not so random - I was reading Handmade Jane's post about it).
What a brilliant idea. It's being hosted by Marie at A Stitching Odyssey and Kerry at Kestrel Makes. You can read all about it here. But the bestest is that you can set your own challenge.
Which leaves me thinking that this pattern desperately needs to be made up...
During 2015, I, Elena Rosa Brown, will sew up (at least) three of my vintage sewing patterns.
So, are you tempted to take part? Maybe use up a snazzy little vintage pattern you have tucked away somewhere. Or are you totally turned off vintage patterns?
