April Round Up & Simplicity Giveaway Winner

April is nearly at an end, so time for the monthly round up. Let's begin with a selection of 5 Vintage Pledge Makes from April:
Heather B made a fab cherry print shirt from a 1960s Simplicity pattern (I have the same one in my stash too, great inspiration!). I do envy Heather's perfectly coordinated outfits.
I love Joyce's top from a 1982 Style pattern - she first made this pattern in the 1980s but regretted ditching the pattern some years ago and was delighted to get another copy so she could make it again

Claire made this dress from a vintage Butterick pattern - I love the contrast panel
Butterick #4731
Congratulations to Kelly on sewing her first vintage pattern - isn't this dress cute, with a lovely mini model?
I have to give a special mention to Lisette's fabulous 40s culottes. If you read her 1940s inspiration post, you'll know she's ALL ABOUT this decade. Look how cute and wearable they are!

Keep blogging and tweeting about your makes and letting us know so we can pin them to the Pinterest Board
