I realize now that I was born in the wrong era. I was suppose to be an adult in the 1950's, 1960's, and 1970's. I love the fashion from those time periods. I find myself perusing Etsy, Ebay, and other sites that sell Vintage Patterns more than I do the newer ones. I am so attracted to a 1970's Jumpsuit pattern, or a 1960's Dress pattern.
I adore the huge collars, the classic lines, the wide legs. All these design aesthetics fit me to a tee. I came across the following patterns on Etsy and I am in love and have to have them all:
Simplicity 9370 is absolutely gorgeous. I can see this in so many color and print combinations. I love the clean lines, the wide legs and the bust darts coupled with a wide belt, yes, so me.
My how I love Butterick 4769. Can't you see this in a light airy linen (yes I am a Jumpsuit Junkie). Very pretty eggshell white or soft pastel green would rock the heck out of this tailored jumpsuit. I love the chest pocket, collar and side pocket details.
If you are summer time fine (that would not be me), I can see you lovely ladies strutting into a classy outdoor bistro, sipping wine and enjoying the cool summer nights in this lovely ensemble. Vogue 8336 has all the Glam 1960's you can handle.
I am sew loving the huge collars and clean lines on Simplicity 9674. The short option is so cutesy retro, though not for my thunder thighs, but I can see the endless possibilities.
