Great Ideas from the 80's
I had all these made back then and lived in them, shoulder pads and all. As I recall the shoulder pads made for some definition since the outfits were on the baggy side, for drape of course.
But what I really like and this is just between you and me, is that you could wear the outfit all day to work and then sleep in them too. Just release the hounds and jump into bed. O and take out the shoulder pads.
I was so colorful in those days, purple, red, aqua, hot pink, black, yellow, white and orange. I still have the aqua and only recently unloaded the hot pink one. Seeing the date on the pattern, 1988, makes me realize how long ago this was the style. 20 years practically!
I think it is time to bring it back.
I went to Joann Fabrics yesterday with my 40% off coupon ready to restock on interlock knits... which considering the extra 25 pounds I am carrying around (No Knead Bread!!!) it may become necessary to retool the wardrobe, and found that interlock is kinda boring colorwise these days.
Pasty and dull. So nevermind.
But somewhere there must be some stretchy fabric that drapes nicely and doesn't hug the cellulite too tight. I like the idea of having a minimal uniform wardrobe where everything goes together and looks good and is comfy enough to wear to bed.
