Black Simplicity 1426

It’s probably not a huge surprise that of the Vintage Pledge patterns I picked out, the first one I sewed was the one I said I’d only make after doing some more practical ones. I just couldn’t resist this fun little top, particularly after I made plans to go to the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend.




Marie from A Stitching Odyssey, who co-hosts The Vintage Pledge, invited me to share one of my projects on her blog as part of the Vintage Pledge July extravaganza, and I wrote about my Simplicity 1426. I chose view C and only made a few minor modifications when I sewed up my top. I swapped out the buttons for hooks and eyes with a decorative frog closure over them, and I added a some elastic to the band at the front. You can read more about it and see more pictures in my guest post on A Stitching Odyssey.
