1 x grey wool 60s coat multiplied by 1 x 1940s home needlecraft book = 1 warm coat for small dog and 1 applique 40s style bolero
Have been sewing and crafting since I was a small child, so yes, that’s well over forty years now! Love retro sewing, particularly re-purposing vintage textiles and “make do & mend” type projects. Was inspired by one of my vintage home needlework books to repurpose a dowdy grey coat. I used 40s appliqué and embroidery motifs to decorate the bolero, and my own farmyard motifs for my little dog’s jacket. See more on my blog at http://brocobelle.blogspot.com/. Lovely to join the Sew Retro crowd and huge thanks to Anna for her help in getting me signed up. Cheers, Karen
