As promised, when I did my first Vintage Crochet Podcast, here is it’s sister one, my first Vintage Sewing Podcast. In episode one I focus on the the sewing projects I’m currently working on to create a 1930s holiday wear capsule wardrobe. This follows on from my last post about the inspiration for my 1930s beach pyjamas and now you get to see the fabric that I’ve chosen. It’s from somewhere quite unusual.
I also talk about the other pieces I want to make and show you the inspiration behind them, the fabrics and trimmings I’ve chosen and the patterns I’m going to use. Hopefully, this will give you a little insight into the process I go through when trying to decide on the garments to sew. It seems bizarre to condense it down into such a short video, but trust me, I spend hours thinking over what I want to make, how it’s going to look and what fabrics to use. It’s more like months than minutes!
Below I have listed the relevant links to the fabrics, buttons, trims and sewing patterns that I’m going to be using for your reference.
As always, I hope you enjoy it and thanks for watching!
