Social Sew #4: Vintage

Hello, Social Sewing beauties! and welcome back. Without further ado--

July's theme is Vintage!

If you haven't heard, it's #VintagePledge month!! The best month of the year, perhaps. I have a lot going on all over the place this month (more details Monday) but I couldn't help but celebrate vintage on this little space I've carved out online and make this month's theme vintage. I left my pledge pretty open, but I want to sew a few dress patterns I have been waiting for the right fabric for--the pledge encompasses both vintage patterns and vintage re-releases (for example, the Simplicity Vintage line you can buy at Joann or Spotlight or wherever) and I have a couple of each stashed away for this year. This month, though, I have my pattern and my fabric all picked out and I'm excited to start sewing... what about you? What's your vintage pledge?  Did you pledge to sew a certain number or type of vintage pattern/s this year? Are you a veteran vintage lover or will you be dipping your toes in the pool for the first time?

The link up will be open from the 1st of the month (at about 8 am est) and will close the last day of the month. 

Some rules: 
1. This is for adult apparel sewing, so no kids clothes or home decorating (unless specified otherwise in the theme).
2. Newly blogged garments, please: the things you add to the link up should be made in the month the link up is for. Remember, the theme and the link up are there to inspire you to create something new! 
3.  Please click on the logo above to download it, and put it either in the post you are linking up, or in your sidebar. I'd also appreciate you linking to the Social Sew--the more people who discover it, the more participation we'll have, the more inspiration! Thanks, y'all.

Upcoming themes:
July (this month) | Vintage
August: TBD
September: TBD
October: TBD! :)

ps: yayyyy vintage! where my 60s girls at?

  1. Ooh, I guess I have no excuse not to participate in this one! I actually cut out a pinafore and mini skirt the other day so will link up once they're completed. Looking forward to seeing your makes.
