My name is Steph & I’ve been looking around on Sew Retro for a while, so I thought I may as well contribute a few of my own projects. Whilst I make a bit of modern clothing, I often find myself drawn to designs from the 50’s & 60’s. I’m also very interested in some of the vintage construction techniques.

I’ve been sewing for about 6 years now. I started when I was in university because I wanted to make dresses to wear to balls & parties, (I didn’t have the money to buy them ready-made). I’ve really gotten into sewing in the last 2 or 3 years though.

I keep track of all of my projects on my blog, Orchids In May.

The above picture of me, was one of my most recent vintage projects, Vogue V1137. I made it using an embroidered wool. Whilst it was fairly simple to actually sew, it took FOREVER to cut out as I was trying to get the embroidery to match up perfectly at each of the seams. Overall I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

  1. Welcome Steph! Love your dress! I too love the 50's style and have only recently been drawn to the 60's. Keep up the good work.
