sew retro!

30 September 2011

Well, have you been over to Sew Retro yet??  Clever sewers share their vintage and retro sewing projects (yes HEAPS of photos and vintage patterns to drool over… ) share their tips, fabric finds and do giveaways of goodies and treats.

It’s my new favourite place… and I’m inspired to make some dresses I have patterns for, so this week, I sorted through my stashes and discovered that in a new haul of notions from my mum were zips, exactly the colour and length I need for these little numbers!

So here they are…

So the centre dress, close up on the fabric…


This fabric, and the one above were great finds on trademe….  here’s a better photo of the top fabric.

This fabric is very black brocade (but light weight) I think maybe the top pale blue version.


See, roses.

If I have enough fabric (might be a tiny bit short..) I’ll make the long sleeve version, or no sleeve.  I love this fabric and have had it for ages.


Can’t wait to make a start on them, and hopefully I’ll have at least one new dress for summer!
