A Lobster play suit!

Happy springtime everyone!

To celebrate longer and brighter days and summery temps here in Norway, I made this playsuit from the Wearing History Sailor Girl pattern. While I do love the traditional navy and white version, I wanted to make this with a twist.



The pattern is great, with easy to follow instructions and a nice fit right off the bat. It consist of three different items, shorts, shirt and a skirt. Basically a whole summer wardrobe! With a little creativity you can create many different looks out of this, the sky is the limit. I just cannot recommend this pattern enough, especially if you adore this classic casual look of the 40s!



Thanks for looking! More pictures and construction details on my blog!

Happy sewing everyone!

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 :)
