A little re-intro and my latest sewing

October 30, 2011


So, I was sharing my sewing projects with you all over at “the old” Sew Retro, and now I finally got to re-register at this new site!

For those of you who don’t know me yet, let me introduce myself briefly: I’m Ewa, born and living in Sweden, and I have been sewing and crafting for pretty much all my life. Over the last years I’ve become more and more devoted to my sewing, and today my goal is to sew almost all garments (except underwear) I want instead of buying them (I do a lot of swapping with other likewise inclined ladies as well instead of buying new). I have always loved vintage fashion, and I like to make clothes from all kinds of styles and periods.

My latest sewing was for Halloween, I went with a vintage 1980s sweatshirt fabric and made a self drafted mini dress, to create the look of a creepy crazy doll. Here’s how it turned out:

If you’re curious about what I’m sewing when I’m not making costumes, or just want to see more pictures of this one, feel very welcome to take a look on my blog, Sew Ewellyn
