My name is Petal Rose (yes it really is) and I live in Australia. I love sewing designs from my large collection of patterns from the forties, fifties and sixties and have recently started to blog my dressmaking so that others can enjoy seeing the results of classic patterns, as I do. I have read the contributions to Sew Retro for over a year, and really look forward to posting my own work. My sister is modelling a Vogue 1960’s shirt dress for me in the pictures below.
If you would like some free rare patterns please check my blog http://petalrose-petalrose.blogspot.com/ now and then as I will be posting quite a few that need new homes sometime soon (I really need to be able to fit into my sewing room again). Once again, nice to meet you all and thankyou for your wonderfull posts!
