This is my creation for Week 4 of the Project Runway Australia Sew-a-long I am hosting on my blog
The brief is to make something from the ‘60s; ’70s; ’80s; or ’90s and make it fashion forward. You get 70’s bones in modern colour blocking!

All major seams constructed with the overlocker for durablity. Cuffs finished with the stand-alone coverstitch machine.
