Allow Me to Introduce Myself…

July 25, 2009

Hi Everyone –

My name is Nancy, and I’ve been sewing off and on since 8th grade home ec class! 😉 I’ve always loved clothes from the early 20th century, and I’ve recently started collecting patterns and fabric to start building my own vintage wardrobe. I’m still learning the intermediate to advanced dressmaking techniques I’ll probably need to make the vintage clothing I want; it seems like tailoring was MUCH more complex in the old days, or is it just me? (lol)

If you want to see what I’m up to, you can check out my blog, Waiter Waiter Percolator. I have other interests besides vintage sewing, so you’ll find other stuff there too.

I’m looking forward to reading more of what everyone else is working on, and hope you won’t mind if I pick your brains once in a while!


  1. Wow – that has to be the fastest introduction ever! Welcome to Sew Retro! Love the blog name, one of my favourite songs 🙂


  2. Hi Angela – Yep, I've been at the computer doing other stuff, so the timing was right! Thanks for this great resource!!! I love Java Jive too… they don't write songs like they used to; I was definitely born in the wrong decade!
