Vintage Sewing

My introduction: Five Guineas

June 1, 2010

Hello lovelies! I’m Ruth and like the rest of you I love to sew! I have been reading this blog for awhile and I am so glad to be part of such a great community! Right now I live in England (which has sparked my interest in studying historical fashion) and I have started sewing vintage styles.  This was the first (retro) dress I did for a ball back in October:

It was from a Butterick reprint (4919), but I have lots of vintage patterns that I am excited to make and share with you! My blog Five Guineas is fairly new (I’m having some frustrating formatting problems, so please bear with me) and I’m trying to find my niche, but I love talking fashion and sewing from all eras.  I hope you enjoy reading it!
