Finally on Sew Retro!

October 22, 2010
Hello all you lovely people. I’m Stevie and this is my first post on Sew Retro Ahhh i’m exited!
I am addicted to this blog and love seeing the amazing clothes everyone creates.
So heres my contribution
This is my Joan Dress made from a Butterick retro pattern. I cut too small to start with and then graded Wayyyyy to big. It took forever to get it to fit and still needs tweaking!
I made it in a blue linen knit style polyester and its so versitile! This is not just a post about the frock though but part plea if anyone has this pattern in an uncut or size 20 and wishes to swap for my 18 please let me know! I’m thinking about selling it on my etsy shop
You can also read about my sewing shenanigans on my blog here.
Happy Autumn Afternoon Everyone!
I’m off to finish my homemade mulled wine yum!
