Hopeless of ever being "fashion forward", do you see a glimmer of possibility in "fashion backward"?
Do you dream of godets?
What has inspired this madness of mine?
1. The strong appeal of 1970's (and 60's) fashion which I mostly missed out on, having only experienced the decade as a toddler.
2. Recently discovering at my library several drool-worthy Butterick Home Catalogs from the 1970's.
3. The revelation that my sister-in-law is also obsessed with the 70's.
4. Karen's decision to satisfy her daughter's request for bellbottoms, using the same pattern I've been eyeing for a year or two.
If the bellbottom bug has bitten you, too, you can submit photos to the newly minted Flickr group: Bellbottoms and More. I plan to start a pseudo-sewalong with a flexible start date. If, by some stroke of genius, you have recently (in the past year or so) sewn a 60's or 70's garment, you can submit it to the flickr group and it will still qualify for the contest. Details to come.
There's plenty of love in blogland for 30's, 40's, and 50's fashion, but not so much for the 60's and 70's. I'm happy to do my small part.
