5 Makes from March

Many of you are flying through your Vintage Pledge makes and I have chosen a selection from our Pinterest board to share here:
Mustard Beret
Grace at Beyond Measure made this fantastic hat from a Sally Victor for Vogue pattern. I love the colour and I think it might be our first ever Vintage Pledge hat
Helen made a stylish cropped jacket to go with her wedding outfit. Doesn't it look lovely with her vintage hat?
Vogue 2876
Busy Lizzie in Brizzy made a Vogue vintage repro dress in a lovely coral drapey knit. Props to Liz for going through the 80 (!) steps required to make the dress
southwest eyeblinder dress 4
Erin used a 1970s pattern to make this dazzling dress - I love the pinafore style
Our own Marie tackled the iconic Walkaway Dress, as recently featured on the Great British Sewing Bee , to create her own striking leopard and black version. Six metres of bias binding, folks, six metres....
