I don’t know if I’ve posted this pattern on here before, but I think you can see why it’s one of my favorites. Have you ever seen anything more 70’s than this?
I do have to take a moment to feel sorry for the guys. In my opinion, the big pattern companies have just never hit the mark when it comes to menswear and this pattern, I think, goes to show that trend is nothing new.
I think we can all agree that this pattern is a hot, unfashionable, dangerously dated look. I can feel the polyester grazing my skin just looking at it. So why am I dedicating a whole post to this? Let me tell you.
None of my guy friends were willing to take the plunge on this one, and my husband just laughed in my face before I finished asking him if he wanted it, so yesterday in a caffeine-crazed haze, I had an epiphany. I’m going to make this thing for my damn self.
Maybe it’s the hair talking. I have managed to keep growing my hair out, turning down the temptation to shave my head again as the temperature hear soars into triple digits. At this point, I have a delicately feathered 70’s folk-rock look going on and the idea of wearing this jumpsuit around doesn’t seem so ridiculous. Now all I have to do is find a suitably loud polyester fabric and we’re off!
