I'm studying these a bit better now because I think I would like to make something from either of these magazines as part of my vintage pattern challenge. I'd love to try this strange pattern system.
This is what the patterns look like:
All those dots are 'anchor points' which you use when enlarging these with the special tool. I will make sure to document every step in the process when I get started on one of these.
But for now, let's enjoy the looks:
Again, there are some really nice coats and jackets are some rather simple dresses in really bold prints.
Some of the styling is rather odd. These really look like youngish models with grey hair dye…
This party wear spread is particularly wacky. It seems like they put the outfits for some very different festivities on these pages.
This suit (or at least the jacket) on the left is one of the designs I'm thinking about making.
Do you like the designs from this decade? And if you remember the 1970's firsthand, do pictures like these make you feel nostalgic or just a bit horrified?
