My mother recently cleaned up all her patterns and gave me all the ones she wasn’t going to sew again. I am so psyched about all the retro things these new patterns say I can now do.
I can attend a 1960′s cocktail party.
I can go to the beach. (I am totally making view A, by the way.)
I can go to various mod-themed events.
Me having dinner out with the Mr. (Is this Yé-yé?)
I just don’t know here. Fabulousness just can’t be limited to time and place sometimes. Love that collar! I must make that red cape. I just need to decide between a zipper or leather buckles.
Hello Studio 54!
I can also be Mary Tyler Moore.
And I can do whatever Jerry Hall was doing in the late 1970s.
Oh, and best yet, I get to be married to Steve McQueen!
Seriously, these patterns are amazing. And there are more! I can’t wait to sew some of these up! Thanks Mum!
