Retro Patterns Just ordered these vintage patterns from Etsy. We're picking out retro patterns and fabrics to sew some cool 50s summer wear for our 1950s Beach Party video (to be released late spring 2017). Leading up to that point we'll be releasing a series of videos. Everything from the cloths we're sewing, to the decorations, site preparation, food, environment and entertainment. We'll post our progress as we go. Subscribe right here at www.thediyeffect.com for all posts, and subscribe to our Youtube channel for new videos. We also have a Facebook and Twitter page that will keep you up to date.
Let us know what you think of these patterns. Suggesstions are welcome. The current day photo on the right is a comparison of the old and the new.
Retro patterns include a lot of high waisted shorts, skirts, swimwear, cuffed pockets and shirts, pedal pusher capri pants, and sunsuits also called playsuits. Much of it has come back in style many times over the years. We're bringing it back again, and giving it the DIY effect!
