Simplicity 3775

Hello everyone! First post here on Sew Retro although I’ve been lurking a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ I love vintage and historical fashion and that’s most of what you’ll see on my blog.

I made this skirt last year; my friend lent me Simplicity 3775 (from 1951) and it sewed up quite well! Very easy and fun to do, one of those projects you just love doing ๐Ÿ™‚

I got the navy fabric and the belt from the thrift store so this was a really cheap skirt to make; plus, being navy, it goes with a lot of my wardrobe and is a flattering design. You can read more about it here.

About the author: I’m an old-fashioned girl with an interest in all things historical. I love sewing, living history, swing dancing and wearing vintage clothing. In my spare time I write poetry and tinker on the piano. I enjoy being as thrifty in my sewing as possible and I hope you gain inspiration from the projects posted here. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can find my sewing blog at: www.retrospectsewing.blogspot.com.
