Part 2: Seventies trends and the colour of the year!
The seventies are back! The wide collar made a surprise comeback on the runways for spring 2020 along with platforms, crochet and bell bottom trousers! Floaty dresses and blue denim are as popular as ever and we have some great fabric and pattern suggestions for you if this is a trend that appeals…
I love the mix of fabrics and textures we saw on the runway. Trimmings are a great way of adding a 1970s twist to a garment, faux leather bias binding and lurex elastic give a luxe edge to any outfit.
Here is our fabric and trim edit so you can get the look!
Some great pattern options to get these looks would be…
Adrienne Blouse- Friday Pattern Company
Simplicity – Tunic dress 8551
Simplicity – Vintage style faux wrap 8013
Megan Nielsen – Sudley Blouse & Dress Sewing Pattern
The Joan Trousers – Friday Pattern Company
Tilly and the Buttons – Jessa Trousers and Shorts Sewing Pattern
Or, why not try a a bit of upcycling… The denim trend this year is for patchwork, bleached and mix and match styles, this could easily be replicated by ucycling some old jeans from your wardrobe or the local charity shop using scraps of denim to create a tiered maxi skirt…
Will you be making any 1970’s inspired pieces for your wardrobe this year? Or perhaps just a nod to the trend with some denim and vintage trimmings? I’m definitely all over this one and wish I had kept the bell bottoms I made at Art college…
