I can’t turn down a good Challenge!
I have slowly realized that I am not one to make New Year’s Resolutions … in life or in my sewing. Instead, I just blather away about all the things I want to try this year … sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn’t … sometimes I plan one thing and it ends up being another!
I am finding though, being exposed to so many new things on these wonderful sewing blogs, that there are many, many “Challenges” out there and I am having a difficult time saying “No”. Give me a Challenge and I will sign on!
So that is how I find myself signed up for FOUR Challenges in 2015 – this is going to be so fun! There’s the RTW Fast 2015 and Jungle January and the 2015 Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge! and the Make A Garment A Month Challenge! I think I can do it all… really! Seriously!
I already roared through the Jungle January Challenge. Yippee! Now I have to conquer the RTW Fast, the MAGAM Challenge (that one might be difficult!) and the Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge.
I have a few vintage sewing patterns, given to me by my sister, that I could sew up. (Thank you, Rose!) I would like a vintage dress. I would like a few actually. I am unsure though how much time I have this year for sewing up vintage dresses. So give me a hand here … which dress should I sew up first? Let me know and I will start hunting through my fabric stash!
Here’s some more patterns from the 2 boxes my sister gave me …
Now these are not vintage, but they are “retro” patterns. (click on one photo to start)
What do you think … can I pull off all these Challenges? and which vintage dress should I do first? Love to hear from you!
