Today’s Oregon Rail Dress got me to thinking about retro-inspired fashions— think Dita Von Tesse when she is offstage in a tailored pastel colored suit (pictured bottom right), or 50s-inspired dresses with full skirts and ruffles. Do you like this look?
It is funny how timing works sometimes— I just received a book in the mail today, Sew Retro. This book features “25 vintage inspired projects for the modern girl.” Tutorials offer how to make a Victorian pincushion, an apron, an opera bag and even a mini-skirt pattern. Do you wear retro fashion? Are you a fan, like our Alden, of cinched in waists a la 1950s and big, voluminous skirts? Do you sew from vintage patterns? Share!
