1970’s Puff Sleeve Jacket!

January 16, 2011

I just purchased a box lot of vintage 60’s and 70’s patterns off of Ebay a few weeks ago and was really excited about this particular pattern. I really love the contrasting collar and cuffs! I’ve been feeling especially inspired by the fashions of the 70’s, as my fiance and I are working our way through all of the Oscar Best Movie winners, and have finally made it mid-way through the 1970’s!

This was a super-easy sew, as it was unlined and the collar was cut in one piece. I am looking forward to sewing a long-sleeved version soon!

  1. Your jacket is positively adorable! Sometimes it's still hard for me to see the potential in the pattern- but you made this one into something really beautiful! Love it!

  2. Very cute and could be used easily for the 50's. I have one similar and it is really simple to make these reversible. You should try it. Get two looks with on!

  3. love this jacket! I will have to keep a look out for the pattern too…I find these really flattering as i'm a pear shape and these are great for balancing the figure…great sewing! i like your fabrics to!
