velvet and lace dress, butterick B5152, retro 1948

I found a cheap velvet fabric, brown. I knew I wanted to sew a wrap robe and after many hours searching at the net I ended up in these modern patterns with a retro touch.
Unfortunately I discovered that I didn’t have enough material… After a call to my mother I solved it.

I spend every free moment by the sewing machine or with my crochet needles. I love vintage, so of course, every piece I make is inspired by past times. The period from 1880 to 1940 is my favourite. When I crochet I use old patterns as a starting point, then I improvise to make my own design, for jewels such as earrings, rings, lapel flowers, necklaces. And I crochet collars in a very vintage 1880s style. I crochet only in ecological linen thread and silk thread which I have inhereted from my mother, to be aware of the environment is very important to me. I live in Solna, Sweden.
