Hi Everyone! My name is Tiffany and this is my first SewRetro post. I’m so happy to finally be posting! I’ve been reading the blog for about 4 months now, and I truly love it.
Most of my sewing is in the Victorian fashion, but however much I love Victorian, it is just not easy to wear it in public most of the time. Vintage fashions (circa 1940+), however are much easier to go out in.
I am posting because I tried to “cheat” on a dress over the weekend. I was wandering an antique Mall and found a lovely “Margo Walters” dress from the 1950s in overall good condition. I was psyched, especially since the dress was my size (score!) At least I thought so until I got home.
I tried on this gorgeous spring green dress and alas, my bosom was too buxom. No matter how much I tried to squish them down, I could not zip the zipper. A sad day for me and Margo Walters.
I ended up Etsying the dress, much to my dismay. If I could have let the dress out enough I would have done it in a second!
It was good to finally post here! I hope to post more about my Vintage Adventures in the future, and if any of you want to check out my blog see it here.
