Well, I came upon a blog called Sew Retro and was very intrigued. It is a blog of over 100 contributors who use vintage patterns and fabrics to make gorgeous outfits. It made me wish I hadn't given away a lot of those patterns. I love the 1950's designs. They make me think of my Grandma and what she would have worn to church or just doing her everyday housework. I love looking at old photos and am always interested in their clothing and the styles of the time.
Here are a few that I really liked. You can find them at Sew Retro but I will also credit the individual contributor. Enjoy!
This first one is by Susannah at Cargo, Cult, Craft. It is from a 1968 pattern and the dress started life as a tablecloth. Crazy but super fun!
This one is by Polly Esther of A Sewing Obsession. I love how this turned out.
This one is from Rhinestones and Telephones. This dress was actually inspired by June Carter. I love it.
Sew Retro is definitely going on my blog list. I feel inspired today. Have a great weekend!
