50s-Style Playsuit

December 5, 2015

I feel like there are few garments which capture the pin-up girl aesthetic so well as a good old-fashioned playsuit. I’d been wanting one forever but the selections in shops disappointed and patterns I saw failed to inspire. Until, that is, I saw the romper variation in Gertie Sews Vintage Casual. It was the playsuit of my dreams, and I am so pleased to finally be able to bring those dreams in to reality!

I was so delighted with how it turned out 🙂 Though there were some trials and tribulations in sewing it, the result was well worth the effort. You can read more about it, see more photos and construction details on my blog.
