Hello there! This is my first post on We Sew Retro and I’m happy to share with you one of the dresses I have sewn this summer. This is actually the second dress that I have ever sewn and I must say I’m really happy with the result (although I promised myself never to show the inside of the dress to anyone because it’s just sooo messed up in there!). I was really excited to make it from an original pattern from a German magazine called Praktische Mode, issue 5/1961. If you want to read more about how the sewing went, feel free to visit my blog post about it here. Also take a look at the illustration below — the original drawing from the magazine. My dress is the one marked Abb. 1 and changed it just a little bit to better fit my silhouette.
I’m a huge fan of wearing vintage-inspired clothes so naturally I’ve already worn this dress a ton. If you want to see more photos of the dress itself and how I like to wear it on a daily basis, head over to this post. Thanks for reading! I hope to post some more as I sew more. I’m really loving this place, full of talented seamstresses!
