Very seventies

I took some time to trace, cut a sew some clothes for myself this long weekend. The jumper is made from a lovely sweater knit I picked up at an Op shop. I used Kwik Sew 2900 and drafted the cowl myself. The knit was unravelling very fast so I played with my differential feed and used my overlocker for everything but the hems.
The wool pants are made from my trusty Burda staple pattern. I found this remnant at an op shop too and there was just enough for the pants but I had to cut the yoke facing from a seperate contrasting fabric ( I chose a purple hand dyed piece).


  1. Looks great Marie. I don't think it looks really 70s, more like a classic, timeless outfit and it looks fantastic on you.

  2. you're very talented, looks good on you........

  3. Marie that outfit looks lovely, thats something i haven't managed to do yet is make something i would wear out the house.

    I really like the top.

  4. nice work Marie! I really need to start sewing for myself too. Most the stuff I make is for my kids. You have inspired me!
