So what am I pledging to sew this year?
Next up, I want to finish the denim skirt I've cut out from this pattern, Butterick 5244:

I can never have enough denim skirts so this will be super-useful.
Roisin's dress made in this fabric and could only find enough yardage in the U.S., which then incurred a customs charge on top. Needless to say, it will be great to actually use this fabric! I haven't decided on the pattern yet, but it will be vintage.
Those three items are kind of 'finishing what I started', from making part of a pattern to cutting out a pattern and buying fabric for a dress I didn't get around to making. Apart from that, I intend to make another two items using vintage patterns.
So here's my pledge;
"In 2016, I, Kerry of Kestrel Makes, pledge to complete 2 vintage sewing projects I've already started, make a wedding guest dress and sew 2 further items from vintage patterns."
Have you been tempted into joining us for vintage pledge this year?
