Well, even if I haven’t posted here lately I’ve been sewing quite a bit – a silk blouse and lace skirt – and having a sort of wardrobe identity crises. You can read all about it on my blog. But I haven’t been sewing so much retro, until my most recent make – a jacket or cape from a 1950’s reproduction pattern.

Just before Lisbon, I whipped it up in a blue-grey wool with an ivory silk lining and some vintage rhinestones buttons as a final touch. For once, I used a commercial pattern (Vogue Vintage Model V2934, an original 1950’s design). Although I didn’t change the design – much – I did sew it differently from the directions.

And I’m just saying – I really love it. Please come over to my blog StinaP and get all the nerdy sewing detailsVintage vogue V2934 jacket front www.stinap.com
