Lots of separates

Hi Everyone!
It’s been a while since I’ve been on We Sew Retro – and it’s not that I haven’t been sewing!



Here is a a whole bunch of 40’s separates I’ve made in the past couple of months. A fantastic 10 gore 40’s skirt and THREE blouses!  I think the 40’s were one of the most timeless eras of fashion – and I would say universally flattering too. Do you agree?

    These are all fantastic! The blue blouse is stunning, I would have believed that it was authentic forties vintage! Great job!

    I love Forties blouses too, I just made a couple for myself. They rocked the separates during that era, I think because of the fabric rationing.

    Super cute! Love it! I must make some 1940s blouses with a huge button.
    The forties are great…I love the novelty fabrics that they used.
