It's Sew Easy

The 1950s - Boom And Rock

Season 8, Episode 9 of 13

In the 1950's, every teenager had a transistor radio and went to the sock hop. Designer and sewing expert Gretchen Hirsch shows how to make an updated circle skirt for today. Lisa Shaw adds contemporary machine-embroidery to a cardigan sweater, inspired by the sweaters of the 1950's. Gretchen returns to show how to add a gathered crinoline to make the skirt really full and flirty.
