Hello Good Sewing People!

For my debut here on WSR, I just wanted to show you my take on the Wearing History WWII Overalls. This is my second ever garment, I just started sewing clothes about six months ago. I am quite happy with how they turned out!

I am a Norwegian gal, born in 1976. I discovered sewing in spring 2013, so I am kind of a newb :) I have always loved everything vintage, and was thrilled to find I could actually make my own vintage inspired clothing using old patterns! I love many different eras, but the 1940s hold a special place in my heart :) I am so glad to have found the online sewing community, so many talented people. Very inspiring :)

Hey welcome to WeSewRetro!

These overalls look great, I think they suit you – it’s surprising what works when you try it. I was not sure about full skirts, then I made a dress with a very full skirt, and love them now. I really like the button and button hole details, that’s a nice touch.

I visited your blog, keep it up, I also love your blouse, what’s next? Can’t wait for your next project…. No pressure!
