Introduction to Sorbetsurprise

I have just joined Sew Retro which I think is a fab blog and I just love browsing through the vintage patterns, vintage fabrics, vintage inspired outfits etc!  A little about me, I live in Wales and enjoy spending time sewing, dressmaking and generally collecting patterns.  I prefer to sew dresses more then any other garment and enjoy using vintage patterns and adding my own modern twist. 

So here are a few examples of my retro work so far:

1950’s Vogue Pattern

Pretty pink cotton slub and floral buttons, I made this for my halfway-to-50 party last year and it is a firm favourite. 

1975 Style Pattern

My most recent retro dress with cute puff sleeves and ribbon wasitband.

Simplicity 3780  a reissue of a 1950’s pattern

I love this dress!  I made it for my sister for Christmas and I think I will have to make myself one too.  I am currently working on Vogue 2960, another vintage reissue.  If you want to see more please visit my blog

    Love all of the dresses, but I cannot decide which one is the cutest. Look forward to seeing more of your garments.

    3780 is gorgeous. The bodice detail is fab.
