Hello! I’m Tonia and I’ve been a silent admirer of the creations here on sew retro for quite a while.
I’ve been sewing simple projects and doing basic alterations since I was a teenager. Last January, I enrolled in my first real sewing class (a wonderful group of 10 women ranging in age from 30 to 70)!
I love the styles of the 60s and 70s, so I chose a vintage pattern for my first project. Under the patient guidance of my teacher, I was able to finish this red stretch denim jumper by the tail end of the semester. It looks like I’ll have to pick up the pace if I want to make a dent in my vintage pattern collection!
