Sewing The Seventies – Nearly There! (and I reveal the prize!)


The deadline for Sewing The Seventies is almost on us. I’m really excited and I just can’t wait to see all your makes!

What I am planning to do is write another post on 26th March and ask you to link your finished post in the comments. Please refer to this post when writing your post. After this, I will then compile a post about the competition entries.

Today, though, I’m going to share the details of the prize – yay! The prize is two different fabrics that I picked which both have some connection with the seventies.

The first is actually a vintage fabric from the 1970s. It is a beautiful cotton lawn with a floral design in pinks and blues.

Prize 1

The second is a contemporary fabric. It is a Missoni-inspired chevron design. This is a viscose- elastane blend jersey and for those you might be interested in buying this, it came from Minerva Crafts.

In other news…..

I’m nearly there with my jeans, I just need to add the jeans buttons. To be honest I’m wary of making holes in the fabric and need to “work up to it” (That’s just procrastination by another name, if you hadn’t guessed!)

I also thought this article from the BBC about how politics affects the journey our clothes take was interesting – Enjoy!

  1. my post is already up and I can’t wait to see what other people have been working on! This has been lovely and so have your seventies posts. Maybe see you doing this again next year…? 🙂

  2. The fabrics are gorgeous! Although, I must say, I was having so much fun with the challenge I forgot all about the prize. It really has been a lot of fun – thanks for thinking it up and running it. 🙂
