Sew for Victory

When Rochelle announced the “Sew for Victory” sew along on her blog I was super excited and respond to the call with a sound YES, I WANT!
I read Rochelle’s suggestions about finding inspiration on Forties wearable, I downloaded the digital’s catalogue but I also would to recreate some Italian look as well of that period since I’m Italian and our WWII Era seen both my grand-mothers adolescent.

Browsing Ebay I found some Forties vintage pattern and I bought them and I’m impatiently wait them to arrive to decide what to make for the Sew Along.selected-patterns
In the meaning time me and all my family got the Flu…. oh! I’ve never got a flue so hard in ages, from school-er time I though. We are getting better now and today I play with some vintage look make up tests 🙂
