Introducing the NEW Vintage Ambassador for Simplicity

*drumroll please* Simplicity has announced its new vintage ambassador… The Crafty Pin Up! 2017 is a special year for Simplicity as it’s the pattern house’s 90th anniversary - and so the sewing pattern specialists are celebrating it in style… it’s not every day that you turn 90 after all.

Patterns

To kickstart its birthday celebrations, the pattern house has teamed up with sewing superstar Abi Dyson – or the Crafty Pin Up – as she’s otherwise known throughout sewing circles. As Simplicity’s new vintage ambassador, Abi has created her first Stitch by Stitch clip, which is part of #SimplicityThroughTheAges … a six-part series hitting Abi’s YouTube channel.

“1950s style is always my favourite for the summer months. I love the Simplicity 8342 top as it’s a perfect pinup style jersey make with a fun rockabilly twist. I can’t wait to make the pair of the cigarette pants to match!”
