Sweetheart necklines, gathers and puffs - but all in 1970's prints, fabrics and colours. I seem to get endless delight from it!
I wore this dress to my 25th birthday party - so yeah - I've had it a loooooooooooooong time....
This one has the gathered shoulder yokes, puffs, collar AND flying ducks!
Another sweetheart neckline, fancy sleeves with a modern print.
Didn't even get to dressing up in the puff sleeve maxi dresses that skim the hips and swish with frills at the bottom.
The 1970's had a spate of great films set in the 1930's too - Chinatown (1974),
The Day of the Locust (1975) with the wonderful Karen Black
Paper Moon (1973) with Madeline Kahn
and of course it started with Bonnie and Clyde in the late 1960's
It doesn't get much better than that for me. I've had this book for an eon and never knitted anything from it but I did find this cross over cardi from the book in the op shop some years back - it's even knitted in the same colours. If only I could find the shorts.....
What's your favourite reinterpretation of an era? 80's does 40's is pretty good - structural peplums and shoulder pads! Very Dynasty!
