Hi there!

Just introducing myself over here – my name is Bex, and i’m a vintage mad grrl living in Sydney, Australia. I’m passionate about knitting and sewing, especially from the era of 1938 – 1954. I just thought i’d share some pics with you – this is a suit i made from a Marian Martin pattern – circa early 1950s. I used stretch drill to give it the tight fit, without worrying about losing the shape (I had to enlarge it to fit a 41 in bust and big hips!)

And lastly, some satin tap-pants from 1932 (cant remember the brand – sorry!)
