This is my first post, but I have been a longtime lurker.

This is a 1950 blouse pattern I made out of some turquoise polycotton, if I make it again it will be with something with more drape in it.

it went together quite easy, the only adjustment I made was to take half and inch out of the length.

more, not a lot on my blog blog

Hey YAWLL!
It’s been a long time, well ive actually made something wearable but unfortunately its not for me its for my boyf as a valentines prezzie awww. <3
I used kwik sew 3506 i cut a medium it was massive i took in a couple of inches. the most annoying bit was the facings-i get mixed up with them alot left right front back confusion. as it was valentines and i wanted to put my stamp on it, i tried to stitch I <3 U on the inner pocket flap.
does anyone know of a good book to help the drafting of muslins, converting measurements to drafted clothing? and not hating the fabrics i have thats a big problem for me. but i feel newly inspired by all the gorgeous pieces that you ladies are creating :)

hope to see you all soon

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!
