October Topic: Sewing A Themed Wardrobe 1980s Style
Welcome to a new installment of Sewing A Themed Wardrobe, this time we're taking a trip down memory lane! The theme is "1980s Style Fashion". In this topic we will explore the style that stood out and really set the tone for that era. Items like acid washed denim, pleated jeans, bubble skirts, leggings, jelly flats, scrunchies, and of course, big hair! Wheather you're creating an expanded wardrobe for the new 1986 historical character, Courtney Moore™ or creating the pieces for the modern day, I'm sure we'll have fun creating these things together!

I took this class to figure out how to make a pair of jeans similar to the now retired Courtney's acid washed mix and match jeans. There just isn't too many similar patterns. Overall the tutorial on the pattern hack is pretty good. My only real criticism is that she doesn't go into extending the shorts into the pants that are pictured. You are on your own to figure out how to taper it to the ankle (maybe she doesn't taper them, idk) and the bottom cuff, which is doable, but I still think it should been included. I would preferred more jean instructions than the jelly flat mold making tutorial or the bandana. The first intro video also kinda over promises. It talks about how accessories will be covered and that this course looking at existing patterns for 80's elements like puffed sleeves and ruffles, but it's not covered in this course, it's more of an idea to do on your own. I guess I wish that the pattern hacks was available separately or as its own pattern. I do recommend this course if you are interested in 80's pants or the jelly flats.
