Why hello there!

Welcome to what I hope is the first of many posts on Sewing the 60s!

I’ve been obsessed with the 60s since I was a little kid, dressing up like a flower child and listening to The Beatles and Pink Floyd with my dad. I used to watch Peter Sellers movies and Get Smart and dream of wearing the beautiful dresses and outfits those pretty dolly birds wore. My mother once passed onto me a vinyl beach bag covered in multicoloured daisies and as much as I wanted to use it, I also decided not to because even at that young age I knew it was a treasured token of my mothers childhood and of the 60s.

Fast forward 20 or so years and I finally have the skills and historical knowledge to make those charming outfits for myself. I may only be making replicas of those delicious garments  but ill try to do so with the same spirit and freedom of that wonderful decade. 

So join me on this journey through sewing the 60s. I may also slip in some Craft, Fashion and Social history (another love of mine) as well as venture into some other decades of which 60s fashion would not have existed without!

Thanks and Welcome to Sewing the 60s!
