Summer dreams are 1957 Chevy’s with their tops down cruising down the main street, girls twirling their half circle skirts to Elvis, cute cotton knit jumpers and espadrilles. Turn up that rock and roll, make yourself a mai tai, get out your sewing machine or knitting needles and get those a-long engines revving!
In June and July, we have some really fun sew-a-longs and knit-a-longs for you! You will find them in both our Killer Kitsch Vintage Knit-a-long group and in our Killer Kitsch Vintage WIPs group! These can both be found on Facebook.
Over in our Killer Kitsch Vintage Knit-a-long group we are dancing our way to the end of our April through June knit-a-long and getting our needles ready for our Agatha Christie themed KAL. We will be knitting the Miss Lemon Jumper and the Miss Marple Swagger Coat. I am grateful to Vintage Grandma and Subversive Femme for donating patterns for these KALs. We will be starting the new Vintage Knit-a-long on July 1st!
Over on the Killer Kitsch Vintage WIPs group we will be starting the Lila & June Wrap Skirt Sew-a-long on June 15th and finishing up on June 30th! Because every skirt needs a jumper or blouse to go with it, on June 20th we will start the Poison Grrls Boardwalk Blouse KAL and will end on July 15th! The Boardwalk Blouse is an amazing quick knit! (The Killer Kitsch Vintage WIPs group is a show & tell group for your vintage or vintage reproduction knitting, crocheting and sewing!) A huge thank you to Kirsten of Lila & June and Amy of Poison Grrls!
The patterns for the Lila & June sew-a-long can be found here for North America and here for the UK. The Poison Grrls pattern can be found on Ravelry.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am to get started!
