Anyway, this weeks' challenge is the 80s. I love the 80s! I was a kid then so nostalgia really kicks in. Plus, most of the clothes I wore in the 80s were sewn by my mom, so that's even more inspiration! I like to joke that I wish that stirrup pants and huge sweatshirts would come back, because really, can you get any more comfortable than that? Remember those? Handy stirrups to keep your pants from rising up your legs. How do we survive without stirrups these days? It's amazing that our pants aren't up around our knees!
The fabric- a knit sheet from goodwill again- was a regular crayon orange. I had the idea to tie-dye the hood lining with bleach to add interest. I tested a swatch and loved the brighter, almost neon orange it came out to be. I decided to bleach the whole thing! I sewed it all up, threw some rubber bands on, and bleached it. It turned out a lot lighter than the swatch but I really like it. So much more interesting this way!
