1950s | Rompers / Playsuits | Vintage Sewing

1950s-Style Co-ord

January 30, 2016

I’ve been having a lot of fun with my summer sewing here in Australia – frequent beach trips have necessitated (or so I tell myself!) lots of playsuits and rompers to flounce around in. My last frivolous make of the summer? A 1950’s inspired co-ord, made from the BHL Anna dress hacked for the top, and self-drafted shorts.

The fabric is very special – a vintage cotton lawn that had been my great-grandmother’s, before my grandmother passed it on to me. The edges are finished with self-made bias binding, and I added a hand-worked button loop to close the back of the top – gotta love little vintage details like that 🙂

I love this little set, and it’s so versatile for mixing and matching! You can read more about it here on my blog 🙂

Until next time,
