Thrift Thursday and Fashion Friday: The 70's sewing book


picture this in different colors.. and with toggles not ties

The pompom to end all pompommery

where can I get the fabric?

I can never pass up a sewing book at the thrift store.. The 70's were quite a time for the crafty
fashion set. Shall we quilt ourselves up a coat? Or make an Icelandic style cap?

Sorry I was late. Have to run to the show!

When I was shopping for food last night and picked up my baguettes, I wish I was wearing that jacket.

Oh, do the quilt coat, do the quilt coat! I can only imagine, knowing your eye for fabrics, what a diving piece of clothing you'd make from that pattern.

What is it with the seventies coming back to haunt me? OK, I have to say I love the pictures you've shown here. Maybe it's time to embrace my childhood era. I love the hat in this last photo. The coat is cool too, but the coat in the first one is even better.
