My blog has been shamefully neglected recently, but I have something extra exciting to share with you today – my first magazine feature! I was asked months ago (it’s been torture keeping this to myself!) whether I’d like to be involved with a pattern hacking feature for Sew Style Vintage. You know I love pattern hacking and refashioning and the like, so I jumped at the chance.
I won’t into my usual detail on here, as it’s all in the feature, but I wanted to share this exciting news and some photos of my finished hack 🙂 I was very kindly sent the Vogue 9126 pattern and a lovely viscose fabric with a vintage rose print. The feature also shows off a beautiful hack by Abi over at Crafty Pinup – how lovely is her 50s frock?
The magazine is available in WH Smith stores at the moment, or you can buy a copy here if you like. It’s a very pretty magazine, definitely one to keep, and it includes both Vogue patterns used by myself and Abi, as well as the pattern for the blue spotty dress you can see on the cover – 20 projects in total, so it’s well worth its £9.99 price tag.
Thank you so much to Sew Style Vintage for asking me to take part and printing my hack! It’s been a real pleasure, and I’m so happy to be included in such a beautiful publication 🙂
