Sewing Through the Decades Challenge

February 15, 2011

I’ve been busy sewing and realized that I haven’t shared my new outfits here!  Sarah from Rhinestones and Telephones and I are co-hosting a challenge called ‘Sewing Through the Decades‘.  It’s very flexible and it’s basically a challenge to yourself to sew outfits from multiple decades.  I realized that I have lots of skirts and a nice pair of trousers that I’ve recently sewn but not a lot of blouses.  So my challenge for myself is to sew one blouse/jacket/top from each year from 1931 to 1949!  So far, I’ve done the years 1933, 1935, 1940 and 1943!  Here’s the photos:

Next up?  1934!!!  More pictures and details on my blog.

  1. I love this idea! It is a great way to keep from getting stuck on the same decade. I love 50's fashion, but I need to branch out a little. Great idea!

  2. Beautiful garments and you did a wonderful job styling them for the photos, so they look very period correct. My favorite is 1933. It is simply stunning!

  3. What a turn out. I'm torn between the 1933 and 1935 as my favorites.

    As always I love your landscape! So jealous!

    Did you make the hat for the 1940 look?
