I don't have many outfits from the 70's and am trying
to reproduce some of the Best Buy era types. I have
made a few sundress straight from a 1970's pattern
that look very nice.
I wanted a more peasant or gypsy look so took a bodice
from one pattern and a skirt from another, added some
other details and these are the results.
Free's outfit is a little more 'southern belle' than
peasant or gypsy, I think. It's a little too poufy, though
maybe it's just the fabric is not soft enough. But I
I think P.J.'s outfit came out better and is my favorite
of the two. I like the suspender style, it looks cute.
I have some eyelet and gingham fabrics that have a
very soft hand so may use them to try some more
variations of these dresses.
All in all not bad outfits and my hippie ladies have more
a few more clothing options. They are happy!
