Wild Pattern on 60's Jumpsuit

Okay, so I've wanted to post some non-project entries. I have lots of really cool 60's fashion imagery that I've collected and that I want to share. These pictures are so much fun. I can't keep them to myself!

Most of the pictures come from old pattern counter catalogs I bought. They are all Simplicity and McCall's and from the late 60's (unless otherwise noted).

Here's the first picture I'd like to share. I'm not sure I'd wear this jumpsuit, but I do love the geometric pattern. I'm still trying to find vintage op-art fabric to sew. Most of what I've found for sale is too expensive for me to justify buying and/or not enough fabric to make anything. But, I check eBay and Etsy almost everyday, so I have my fingers crossed!


  1. Wow. I'm mildly obsessed with jumpsuits at the moment and that one is something else. It's really interesting to see this sort of thing!

  2. Love that kind of patterned fabrics. It have been popular for some years now so its not easy to find, but I hope you do.
