One day I was lucky enough to come across a box of vintage fabrics (1970s) in the FREE section of Craigslist. Going through that big box was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Here are a few of the things I made…
The 2 shirts with the Sumo Wrestler print are stage wear for my husband (I feel compelled to tell you that)…because I had to cut that fabric cross grain, I used it for the front panels only. The red Sumo print was made in a long sleeved version, with a mandrin collar, and red snaps instead of buttons.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
