Hello and some Edwardian sewing

in 1910s

Hello, WeSewRetro! My name is Stephanie and I blog over at star-spangledheart.blogspot.com. I adore 30s, 40s, and 50s fashion but lately I’ve been completely obsessed with Downton Abbey (and am even hosting a sew along!).

My first Downton Abbey inspired project has been a replica of Lady Edith’s black floral blouse. It’s self-drafted from Colette Pattern’s Sorbetto (ie gobs of drafting!) There are more pictures to be found on my blog.

I'm a 20 something Chemistry professor who loves the fashions of the 30s, 40s and 50s. I'm also completely obsessed with Downton Abbey. Aside from sewing, I also love to knit, scrapbook and read.

Oh my gosh! A few days ago I blogged about how much I wanted to sew a Downton Abbey inspired blouse. This is so great.
