I missed you Sew Retro

I’ve been busy and kept saying I need to sign up for the new Sew Retro. I’m happy to see so many familiar faces, some may not find me familiar but that is okay. For my first post back I will share one of the most beautiful models around….yes I’m prejudice since she is my sister. This is my 40s/50s inspired dress and I have to admit looks perfect on my sis! I will be back to as soon as I finish another 40′s inspired dress. I’m using Kaufman sateen merlot. I am in love with the color and fabric. Again I’m excited to be back to this wonderful community that has always inspired me!

Lovely dress! Lovely model! And that’s an unbiased opinion ’cause I don’t know your sister :) You have good reason to be proud of both. Is that your design or a pattern? Either way, it’s gorgeous!
