Do you do vintage? If yes, you have my full permission to skip this paragraph. If no… What if I tell you that patterns from the 90s can be included in your #VintagePledge? Or that workers of yarn, needle and hook are also welcome, would that sway you? Shall I tell you a little about what I have planned before you decide?
*Takes visible deep breath as she is preparing to make an announcement.*
I’m planning to make and blog one vintage pattern a month. That doesn’t look much like a pledge. Let’s try:
I, Penny, pledge to make one vintage pattern a month.
That looks a little more pledge-like. Now. One a month. Is that a little or a lot? For me it represents A LOT. I’ve just had a quick tot-up of the makes that made me blog last year. By my reckoning there were 14 finished makes with a direct 50:50 split between ‘vintage’ and ‘other’.
There was a definite shift towards vintage towards the close of 2015 and that has carried on into 2016 with a vintage jungle jacket
and a little something with flare from Butterick 3581 in progress.
