Dress Like Your Grandma Sewing Challenge



I just wanted to let you all know about a fun sewing challenge my friend Tanya is hosting on her blog, Mrs. Hughes. It's called the "Dress Like Your Grandma" vintage sewing challenge. Here's the idea:

"This is a vintage sewing challenge where family history can inspire your wardrobe.  Take a photo of your grandma (or your grandpa, great-grandma, mom, aunt, someone else’s grandma —  you get the idea!) and re-create an outfit or piece that they are wearing.  Many of us don’t have vintage garments to remember our loved ones by or perhaps we can’t fit into what they left behind.  Re-create that image with vintage patterns, reproduction patterns or modern patterns.  If your style is different from a family member’s or you want to evoke a different era, find a vintage photo with a garment that suits you and re-create that.  The idea is to study a vintage photograph and transform that photo into a garment or outfit that you’ve sewn yourself."

You can get the rest of the details here on her blog and get some buttons for your own blog.

So much fun! I'm off to find some old family photos!

  2. On the off chance that your style is unique in relation to a relative's or you need to inspire an alternate time, discover a vintage photograph with an article of clothing that suits you and re-make that. The thought is to ponder a vintage photo (1980's or prior) and change that photograph into a piece of clothing or outfit that you've sewn yourself. chanel tweed fabric
