Vintage Sewing

Introducing Myself

May 13, 2009

Hello! I came across this wonderful blog when livebird linked it from her Vintage Pattern Contest review on PatternReview! On PR, I’m Kellie R.

With all of the mooching around that I do on vintage sites, I don’t know why I’ve never come across this blog before?! But I’m glad that I did!

I absolutely love sewing, mostly costumes and from vintage patterns. My vintage pattern collection is starting to take on a life of its own! (Note to self to get cracking on organizing it!)

I’m a full time homemaker and have been married for 13 years to a wonderful man. We have two boys, ages 11 and 7 (almost 8). We have two dogs, a black Lab and a Sheltie. It gets crazy here sometimes!

I currently have two works in progress, although neither is vintage! lol My next vintage project will be a sun dress. But I’m already trying to conceptualize a dress for my upcoming 25th high school reunion! (yikes, was I really Class of ’84?)

In the meantime, I’m planning to resurrect my blog. I completely lost momentum on it after we moved last summer…

I look forward to following everybody’s projects! The camaraderie of other vintage enthusiasts is priceless!


  1. Welcome to Sew Retro. I love this community. I can’t wait to see your projects. You’ll have to post your blog so we can go see what you’re up to.

    If you go to my blog, you’ll find a tip for organizing those vintage patterns. I put lots of sewing tips on my blog.

  2. Thank you very much for the welcome. I look forward to reading your blog, as well as the other members! There is so much knowledge and information here.

  3. Hello! And congrats on your PR contest win – much deserved, your frock is splendid (and I voted for ya!). Looking forward to seeing more from you soon!
