That's So 70s! So You Think You Can Sew - Part 3

Yes children, there was a time, long long ago, where people could actually sew their own clothes. Primitive, yes I know....

Certainly one of the odd little sections of the Big Book catalogs was the Sewing section (usually found sandwiched between the ladies clothes and the kid's sections.)  It was a microcosm of all the 70s groovy fashions in one place, like here with Kathy in mod shorts and the Kay twins in Western prints (1)

Shelley Hack in the Sewing section??  Very strange.

Like I said, you could find examples of every thing else in the Sewing section.  Like here with teh smothering robes shown by Kay and Dottie.

 Even the minis were represented!

Kathy and Shelley show off two completely Sew Your Own styles.

Even Colleen could be found in this section.

Jayne Modean too!!

We need a close up on that one.......
Sundresses were always a favorite of the sew your own crowd.

Check out the prints on these fabrics.  Everything from mice to rabbits to flowers.

You could even sew your own faux fur coats!  Check out those wild animal prints.  Yeah Baby!

I close up of Kathy.  I've never seen anyone so happy wit a Sew Your Own coat!
