Like so many of us out there, I have cracked open my Viva Las Vegas sewing! I wanted to start with this skirt pattern, which I plan on Chevron’ing for the actual event (as pictured in the pattern).
The skirt itself is very easy to sew. I will say that the skirt is SO LONG. I am 5’7, all leg – and even I look a little on the Amish side. If you want it to be closer to the illustration, I suggest you measure and then cut appropriate.
Hello Sew Retro Community!
10 weeks ago I had a baby. I have lost most of my weight, but my body just isn’t the same and I barely fit into my vintage clothing. Also, with strictly breastfeeding – my vintage dresses are out since they are side or back zip. What did that mean for me? SEWING!
I decided to break out my FAVORITE Evadress.com pattern
I cheated and placed a zipper instead of the buttons. I would like to make a denim version with cute buttons next!

Hello We Sew Retro!
I recently mourned the loss of an amazing 50′s maternity top. Tragically I lost one of the fabric covered buttons and splashed hair tint (I am a hairdresser by trade) on it. No use crying over ruined vintage, right?! At least, that’s what I’ve been telling myself
Myself wearing said vintage top
I decided to take apart the top, and remake it using current – vintage inspired fabric! I love the construction of the top, although I do wish I could have found that amazing chartreuse fabric again!
The 50′s shirt. LOVE that collar!
The Fabrics I chose
I carefully seam ripped the entire shirt and ironed out the pieces
Using the shirt as a pattern was so easy!
It took me longer to seam rip, than sew. But, here is the final product!
