Hi Guys! I'm taking a break from this blog to prepare for the impending birth of my son (he's due September 30th, but could arrive any day now!). Plus, my mom is flying in from North Carolina in a few days, so I have lots to do to prepare for that! I'll be back soon, hopefully posting more sewing projects and less vintage sewing ephemera, since this is technically supposed to be a sewing blog. :)
I have been obsessed with the 1970s television show Rhoda lately. I've been watching episodes from the first season on Hulu. They are all so funny and smartly written. In fact, I can't think of a single television sitcom today that even comes close to the amazing array of characters that populated most 1970s sitcoms in general!
Valerie Harper as Rhoda was a true 1970s fashion icon. She totally rocked high waist, wide-leg pants, butterfly collar blouses, puff sleeve blazers, floaty hostess dresses, scarves and turbans! She even earned her living as a window dresser / fashion merchandiser!
Here are a few vintage 1970s sewing patterns that remind me of Rhoda's amazing style. All were found on Etsy!
