When I think about the pièce de résistance of my wardrobe, a sophisticated vintage style suit is a the top of my list, in a kind of ‘one day I’ll make it….’ wistful dream. This year that dream is over! I’m making my Vintage Suit….but I don’t want to do it alone! I’ve been talking to the fabulous and talented Amy Jansen Leen from Chica Chica Boom Chic, and we are both excited to announce that together we are hosting Vintage Suit Sew Along! Will you join us? Go on! Here are all the details….

What is the Vintage Suit Sew Along?

The Vintage Suit Sew Along is a fun sewing challenge for lovers of vintage style. You chose a vintage suit pattern, or draft your own, or create your own suit using vintage separates. You chose your own fabrics, to suit your needs and style, we all work along together, sharing our inspiration and ideas. Amy and I will keep the momentum going by sharing where were are at, putting together some helpful resources (inspiration ideas, tutorials, useful tools etc) then at the conclusion, Amy and I will share all our makes!
