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.

  1. Well, hello. I am so excited to be your first follower. I love what I see here. and I adore your apron with the flowers on it. I recently found an apron my grandmother made for me by hand. Soooo it must be about 50 years old I treasure it. The print on the fabric is Oranges and Lemons like the nursery rhymn. I intend to stay with you blog.

    Cheers Ann
