I woke up this morning and it was 1982.
My inbox told me that some new patterns were up, always an event that gets me excited, and I was surprised by what I saw.
There were a few of the usuals and lots of those draped necklines that I figure are so common now they will be on their way out soon, but what really knocked me out was this:
Have a look, at the line drawings in particular.
I haven't seen profiles like these since I used curling irons to flip up my bangs and had gummy lip gloss on my lips.
The no dart, straight up and down blouse, shirt, and dress.
Just when I finally get over the tight too short jacket, just when I finally learn how to do a FBA on everything, just when I learn how to rotate a shoulder and add bust darts, here we go.
Back to the future.
This, I suspect, is a trend that we will see opening up. One of those reruns that everyone jumps into, like capris, because they remember how comfortable they were.
And of course as a sewer I am seeing this as Fast to Sew. You could whip one of these babies up pronto and pull on a one hour double knit skirt and no one would be the wiser.
And you wouldn't have to wear Spanx.
What do you think?
