Women’s retro blouse and pants sewing pattern available for download. Available in various sizes and is produced by burda style magazine

This two-piece suit has the look of a jumpsuit – but much more convenient! This pattern duo from 1956 is back in fashion and we love it sewn in this bright blue jacquard for summertime. Some great details include the epaulettes, flap pockets, and metal buttons. The narrow silhouetted pants give the legs a stunning line, and it is all put together with a matching belt.

    Not 1956! Surely its 1965?

      My Mum has some retro terry towels from her “glory box” circa 1975 – I’m totally thinking I should get out the scissors – the combo would be so Charlie’s Angels. Haha….
