I’m Featured in Sew Style Vintage Magazine!

Sew Style Vintage magazine cover

Another week and yet another exciting post! Blimey, they’re like buses!

A couple of months ago I was approached by a publishing company to appear in Sew Style Vintage magazine. This super glossy magazine is the 5th instalment in the Sew Style series, which is produced in association with Sew magazine. They explained they wanted to do a feature on vintage bloggers for an upcoming sewing magazine and would I be interested. Well, you can imagine my reaction! (Lots of squealing!!)

I was interviewed by the lovely Kerry at Aceville Publications and asked to share a few photographs of both my favourite vintage pieces, as well as a selection of outfits I’d made. I know I waffled on far too much and sent over way too many photos but I’m so proud of the final piece.

Sew Style Vintage magazine

And here it is! I cannot tell you how honoured I am to be included in this article, especially as it also features four other gorgeous vintage ladies you’ll probably recognise. Jessica from Chronically Vintage talks about her love of mid-century fashion, as well as giving advice on vintage shopping. Catherine from Vintage Frills explains what attracts her to vintage and shows off her wonderful collection of Enid Collins handbags.

Gemma from Retro Chick advises on taking care of vintage and what to look for when wanting to buy authentic pieces. Rachel at All About Eve Vintage (a name that’s new to me) shares her favourite vintage and vintage repro brands, as well as her vintage style icons. And I quite obviously talk about the 1930s and it’s influence on the way I dress and what I make.

Sew Style Vintage magazine is £9.99 but don’t be alarmed by the price, this is more like a book than a magazine and it includes 2 free (yes FREE!!) vintage re-issue patterns! It’s available in all good newsagents and supermarkets and you can also buy it online at Craft Store.


Just a vintage gal suffering from the Golden Age syndrome. A lover of all things old, especially the 1930s, seamstress, crocheter, maker of hats and enjoys rummaging at flea markets.


  1. Congratulations. Thoroughly deserved and not before time.
    Sorry I won’t be buying it I have one of the patterns already.
