Hello! My name is Bry (pronounced like the cheese!) and I love all things retro, vintage patterns, and sewing. I am a costume designer by trade and love to sew myself retro and vintage inspired garments whenever possible. I just love learning new things and techniques. I think just about every era in fashion history is fascinating and has very inspiring details. I love to make myself stuff from the 1920’s to the 1950’s.
I recently finished this 1950’s inspired dress based on the modern pattern Simplicity 3878.

I also recently finished two dresses based on Sense and Sensibility’s new 1780s Ladies’ Portrait Dress Pattern.
