There are many sewing challenges in the blogosphere and I thought it was time to launch my own! Over the next few weeks I’m going to dedicate my blog to writing about the fashions, influences and other aspects of the 1970s. I’m even planning to spend two weeks wearing just my seventies-inspired fashions (when I’ve finally finished my makes!)
More importantly, I thought that it would be lovely to include all you good people out in the blogging world. And there’s no better way to do that than to run a competition. The general idea is to produce an item or items inspired by the seventies. There will be more details to follow, but to get started I thought I’d offer a giveaway as inspiration. I spotted this Burda Magazine in the newsagents before Christmas. It includes 11 patterns taken from Burda magazines of the decade.
There are flamboyant styles…..
… and more restrained designs too, such as this waistcoat.
For each design the original styling in the 1970s magazine is shown and the design is shown again, styled for a more modern look.
There are also articles about what influenced the fashions of the seventies such as this one about Abba.
Just leave a comment below and I’ll select a winner at random. The giveaway is open until Sunday22nd. I’m happy to post wherever in the world.
