Welcome!

Welcome to WeSewRetro.com, the community blog for lovers of vintage patterns, vintage fabric, and vintage style.

We’re an eclectic mix of ladies and gents, spread across the world, with one thing in common: we love to sew vintage. LOVE it. We would willingly get into a fistfight to protect vintage sewing’s honor.
