I’m so excited to join Sew Retro! My name is Lauren and my blog is Wearing History.
I love to sew pretty much anything vintage or historical… from the 18th century to the 1950s, but the bulk of my sewing is from the 1930s to the 1950s. I’m very excited to post among so many talented seamstresses and contribute to this blog!
Since I can’t really think of anything else to say about myself I’ll just post a few pictures of a dress I finished up this weekend:
I made this dress from Eva Dress’ 1932 Tea or Street Frock from green rayon crepe and I used a vintage 1930s deco print fabric for my collar accent. I had been holding onto this fabric for years waiting for just the perfect project to come along and inspire me, and this was the one! This was a really fun pattern to sew for me. I loved the piecing and the drape and the lapped seams. Fun! And I loved sewing with these fabrics, too 🙂 For more on this project feel free to visit my blog about it.
Thanks again for letting me join the team of posters here!
