We asked you all to vote for Septembers challenge and 64 of you had your say, thank you for voting :)
It was a close one with Dresses pipped to the post by Vintage Patterns in the last day before voting closed!
Now don’t worry if you voted for Dresses or the Trousers/Shorts option, just because they lost out this time does not mean they won’t pop up again another month.
We’ll talk more about how you could interpret this challenge later this month but the initial inspiration for having this challenge on the list, and I am sure most of you will agree, was how we can’t stop buying up those cute and kitschy vintage sewing patterns! Who can resit them? Even if they are not in our size, sometimes we are wooed by the envelope illustration, sometimes we just must have ALL. THE. THINGS!
So how about we actually sew some of them up? :)
We will look at a tutorial to help with those extremely vintage un-marked patterns and also some re-sizing help.
So, are we ready to start on our capes? Have you chosen your pattern, got some beautiful fabric picked out?
