A Blue Polka-Dot Sencha

Oh my! I haven’t posted here in ages! I used to post on the old sew retro page but don’t even know if I have ever posted on this site. So this post is long overdue :)

I’ve been reading along all the while but never shown you any vintage-inspired garments of my own. I don’t sew much from vintage patterns because vintage sizing scares me, so I’d rather make my own pattern or use a modern one.

My new Colette Sencha has a super-vintagey look but is made from a modern pattern.

This is my second Sencha. I have made one previously in 2010 but it no longer fits me. Alas, I passed it over to a friend who can hopefully get some use out of it.

For the back closing I used vintage buttons from my stash. I think they go well with the white polka-dot pattern.

If you’d like to see more of my sewing creations you can visit me on my blog: http://starcross-sewing.blogspot.co.uk/.

Happy Vintage Sewing!
