From the 70's Vintage Issue

When I first saw the preview of the 2016 Burdastye 70s vintage issue I was deeply disappointed. I found hardly anything I could wear in there and decided not to buy it.
I had just bought this fabric with the intention to make #117 Jumper Dress. from 10/2016. Just before tracing the pattern, I had a look at those vintage patterns again. How could I be so blind! That weird maxi blue dress would look so different in my joyful fuchia!!!. I rushed out of the house looking for the magazine at 10 pm. Now I think I’ll make two more pieces out of this issue!
It’s a nice and easy pattern, with good fit, thanks to only four buttons (no zipper needed)!

    This looks great as a pinafore..I actually have the 1970 Burda magazine that featured this pattern..the 70s was a good era for burda.

    This is really awesome! I was also disappointed in that issue but now it’s starting to grow on me.

    This is such a cool style Elpida and even though it is vintage I think you have made it now I would wear it in a flash. Great outfit and love the look.

    Τι ωραίο φόρεμα έραψες και έχει όμορφο χρώμα . Το στύλ αυτό μου αρέσει πάνω σου , είναι διαφορέτικο από αυτά που ράβεις συνήθως καί όμως σου πάει πολύ! Το φόρεμα είναι όσο πρέπει κοντό και παιχνιδιάρικο. Το χρώμα επίσης είναι ταιριαστό στο όλο στύλ. Μόλις σήμερα αγόρασα το τεύχος αυτό, Αν και δεν άκουσα πολύ καλές κριτικές μπορώ να πώ ότι με τα κατάλληλα υφάσματα προσαρμοζμένα στο σήμερα , βγαίνουν ωραία ρούχα. Όπως το φόρεμα σου.

    I love the originality and the color of your dress, I think I will give the Burda 70 issue one more chance as well…

      Thanks Ellen! Actually, even the summer version is not wearable without something underneath unless you are a 20 years’ old top model!

      You are a fabulous model Elpida, even if you are not 20 years old Elpida! ;-)

    Yup! Indeed a lot cooler than I expected! I was disappointed by the issue too, but this is not bad! Not bad at all! A bit sexy ;)

      Thanks Maria:-) The summer version of it was indeed super sexy but I thought this one was modest enough to wear at work. You put me ideas….

      Go on! Do it…Just a little tip: I had to make the curves at the front deeper than the pattern because they were hardly noticeable. Except that it was very simple to sew!

    Really like the shorter version of this dress, this style looks fantastic on you. And, love the pink too!

      Thank you! I like the fact that it looks modern and not at all vintage!

    The black and pink are a beautiful and strong color combination. It suits you well.

      Thank you so much! I was unsure about this pink, as it’s probably too girly for my 46 years, but now I love it!

      Baby-pink might be different, but the fuchsia pink is very nice – and perfect for any age I’d say! It’s a pretty color for you.

      Thanks Mary! The magazine has some really good patterns but you can easily misjudge them because of the presentation. I think that the photos from the original 70’s magazines are much more attractive.

      Hi. I do as well. I can see more potential from the original photos plus line drawings. I can’t wait to get my magazine now xx
