Description

For those of you not born yet in the 80’s yes, this was a look I swear I still remember from back then. I’m old. Anyways…this is a Burdastyle pattern from 6/2013 #125. Easy as can be. So comfortable to wear and much easier to wear then the neoprene they were using for the black panels back then. Originally, wetsuits were the inspiration for the look. I saw this gorgeous blue fabric at my local fabric store and I had to use it. I knew it was okay when my son said it looked “sick.” “Sick” I guess still being tossed around for the current word as “cool.”

    Oh this is gorgeous and one of my favourite looks on you. I love the fabric you.used as well. I made this in a heavy sequin fabric and i agree it’s a great pattern to sew up. You look fabulous or sick!! As the youngsters say lol. I had a similiar denim dress to this in the 80’s that i wore to death x

      Thanks Mary! I love this blue fabric too. It’s interesting how some of the looks from the 80s have been brought as if brand new!
