I've mentioned before how much I love 1970's outerwear. To paraphrase Carly Simon, Nobody did it better.
Moving into a smaller space has necessitated much sorting. Some of my vintage magazine collection had to be packed into storage. While I'm sad that I will no longer have easy access to all my things, it has been fun looking through it all. These beautiful sweaters, hats, and jackets are from the 1973-74 Fall/Winter McCall's Needlework.
|My absolute favourite. The ease of the silhouette, the pockets, the cables. |
I especially love the garter stitch collar.
|Very similar in shape to the above classic seventies cardigan,|
this piece is somehow reminiscent of the twenties as well.
Think Daisy Buchanan.
|Knitted coats. How? |
And does anybody know how to rock hats and gloves like this anymore?
