I'm going to be attempting my first 1970's pattern this next week! The Sew Weekly theme is "Don't judge a pattern by its cover." So, trying to make attractive garments from very unattractive pattern (envelopes). Sounds fun, no?
Here's the pattern I'm going to be sewing:
I'm going to sew up View 1.
First, I should clarify that this pattern is only hideous compared to the other patterns in my stash (I tend to buy patterns based on their pretty envelopes!) I actually think the pattern cover is kind of cute and definitely very reminiscient of the time period! However, in comparison to my other patterns, it does stand out a bit. I mean, who wouldn't want a self-decorated rick-rack poncho in their wardrobe? Or what about a vinyl cow print poncho with a matching miniskirt? One of the options for the poncho and mini-skirt is fur fabrics. I briefly toyed with the idea of making a faux fur poncho and matching mini-skirt with my leftover faux rabbit fur...though you will be happy to know that it was a very brief fleeting thought (thank goodness)!
I do look forward to channeling a 70's vibe this next week!
