1940s

Vogue 2476 OOP

I’ve been dipping in and out of wesewretro for ages and I’ve always admired the garments that contributors make and show. Well, I took the plunge and tried it myself. I bought the pattern on Etsy ages ago and never got round to making it so way back in November I made a start and finished it in mid January! An epic journey, though I have to admit to having sewn contemporary pieces inbetween. Anyway, the travelling is now over and I am so happy with the final outcome. What can I say – I love this suit. I love vintage styles. They are so much more feminine and cut to suit an hour glass like mine. The jacket and suit are comfortable, stylish, fit well and no-one has said “That’s old-fashioned” – what they’ve actually said is ” You made it?!” don’t know if it’s a question or an exclamation. I’ve got more pics and the actual journey documented over at http://sewruth.blogspot.com/, if you’re really interested in seeing the whole construction process – otherwise, just enjoy the finished article.

What I can say with absolute certainty is that I will be making more vintage patterns in the future. Thank you WESEWRETRO – I do!
