However, there were two more "half" garments; vintage dresses I started and didn't complete. So this year my first priority is to finish these two off before they become proper UFOs (unfinished objects):
I've already sewn up an 80s midi skirt for our continuing summer weather, so that's going on my list too:
|Vogue 1387 (John Anthony)|
Judging by my efforts last year that's probably going to be plenty, but I want to add an extra challenge for myself, should I find myself with loads of time and energy on my hands.
I have two small boxes of very special vintage patterns, patterns from anywhere from the 1920s to the 1960s, that I really should think about sewing. Here are a few of my favourites:
|Vogue 100 Ronald Peterson|
|Vogue 1556 Yves Saint Laurent|
Putting it all together, here's my pledge:
I, Gabrielle of UpSewLate, pledge to sew at least one more vintage midi skirt from an 80s pattern, to finish sewing the two vintage dresses I started last year, and to sew my daughter the 1970s dress she's requested. And as an extra challenge, I'll aim to sew at least one of the vintage patterns I normally just drool over.
And I'll be back soon with a modern bit of sewing that my son graciously photographed for me today.
