Vintage Sewing

I’m New Here

January 23, 2008

Hello! I’m Juliane, also known as Retro Grace, and I blog about sewing and smocking and other things, too. I especially enjoy collecting and sewing with vintage patterns, and my collection seems to grow and grow….

I particularly love vintage children’s patterns. This one is Simplicity 1149 that I made for my granddaughter:

I name all the little dresses I make, and I call this one Bubblegum. I adore it.

I love the sash:

The back detail:

I’m happy to join all of you here!

  1. Absolutely adorable!!!! I love the fabric and the vintage pattern! You are a fabulous seamstress! Looking forward to seeing more of your projects!

  2. Julianne, you are amazing! I can’t wait to be a grandma for this very reason. What a great idea, to name your dresses!

    And what a cutie of a granddaughter, as well!

  3. Welcome!

    The dress is adorable! And so clever with the bow in the back. I’m going to have to tell my mother about it – she sews for my 4 year old niece.

  4. Your little grand daughter are the dress are just darling!!! I have three DD’s and sewed for them from the time they were born. LOL, that pattern looks like one I used.

  5. I think you should call it Sugarlump. Because that’s what your adorable little grandbaby is in her sweet little dress! 🙂
