Killer Kitsch Summer-a-long

This month’s a-long is a bit of a free for all! We will be doing a summer outfit a-long. It can be a dress or separates. It can include knitted and crochet garments as well. It can be self-drafted, from a pattern or a refashion. The only guideline is the outfit must reproduce patterns from the 1950s or earlier! Show us your memade vintage inspired outfits! I may actually do another tiki set. Or… a patio dress. There are just so many options!

The summer-a-long will run from June 1 to 30! As always, if you post on Instagram please tag @killerkitsch13 and use hashtags #killerkitschsummeralong.

As with every sew-a-long/knit-a-long/crochet-a-long/refashion-a-long, all of the information to the tutorials will be found in our Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/killerkitschvintagewips/).  

Show us your outfits!

Vintage Crochet-a-long

A very popular request we get is to have the occasional crochet-a-long. Your wish is at our command and for our first CAL I am super excited that we have a guest host! Cate Coles, or as many will know her, Vintage Gal Blog will be guest hosting our crochet-a-long for the Shoulder Buttoned Vintage 1930s Crochet Blouse and will be popping in to give tips and answer questions.

Many of you may know Cate from her blog called ‘Vintage Gal Blog’ and her sassy 1930s style (http://vintagegal.co.uk/). She also has a really fun YouTube channel that you can find here. https://www.youtube.com/c/VintageGal

Shoulder Buttoned Vintage 1930s Crochet Blouse is perfect for summer, because it is light and airy and can be made with cotton yarn. I know many of you are over winter and excited to get a summer wardrobe built. I know I am! This is also a fairly easy pattern.

The Shoulder Buttoned Vintage 1930s Crochet Blouse is a paid pattern and can be purchased from The Cemeterian on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/listing/56071401/shoulder-buttoned-vintage-1930s-crochet.

As with every crochet-a-long, all of the information to the tutorials will be found in our Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/killerkitschvintagewips/).
