Sew Simply Retro
Hello and welcome to my Sew Simply Retro blog. I'm Helen and I've been an avid collector of all things retro and kitsch for many years. I love everything about the 1950's; the music, the clothes, the films, the lifestyle and especially the homestyle. The 50's was a time of celebration in post war Britain and the housewife ruled the home. It was out with the old dull drab home furnishings of wartime Britain and in with the new exciting styles of the fifties; geometric shapes and abstract designs printed on crisp fabrics in rich bright colours. Don't you just love the fifties? If you're looking for inspiration, reference, sewing or knitting projects then follow this blog. If you're looking to turn your house into a retro home then check out my Folksy shop.

Sew Simply Retro on Facebook, Etsy and Folksy...well almost!!
What an exciting weekend ... Sew Simply Retro is officially open for business, at least it will be just as soon as I can work out how to set up on Etsy and Folksy!! IT is not my strong point, however making things is. So ... "WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?" I hear all my SSR followers cry (if I had any followers that is!!). Well I'll tell you anyway. Sew Simply Retro is all about sewing, it's about the fifties and it's simply retro. If you're looking for inspiration, reference, sewing or knitting projects, or just being nosey, check my facebook page or follow this blog. If you want to turn your house into a retro home check out my Folksy shop (just give me a few weeks to set it up!!).
