For those of your who want to exercise more of your sewing muscles, two of our members, Anna and Alissa, have started a fab new sewalong called Sew Retro!
"Sew Retro is a sewing group for those interested in making vintage or retro style clothing. We're not limiting ourselves to only truly vintage patterns and/or fabric, but embracing retro and vintage styles in all forms.
We will be having various sew-alongs but with quite general inclusive themes (ie a Simplicity pattern, a flowered fabric, a 50's pattern, that kind of thing) which members will be able to join in with if they so wish.
We are also hoping to be an open forum for all things related to vintage pattern sewing, such as questions on pattern wording, fitting patterns to your figure, where to find certain fabric, notions, patterns etc as well as showing off your handywork and making us all jealous!"
