I love vintage fashion illustrations, don’t you? For my first post to this brand new blog, I decided to share with you some marvelous 1970’s fashion illustrations by Alan Couldridge, from the book “Sew It Yourself: how to make your own fashion classics” by Gidon Lippman, Dorothy Erskine and Linda Jones which is available to read online for free at openlibrary.org.
As a collector of vintage sewing and pattern drafting books, this is one I would love to own just for the awesome 70’s illustrations alone! I’d love to sew up every single one of these outfits.
I tried to find out information about Alan Couldridge for this post, but unfortunately could not find anything on him. If anyone has any information about this fantastic illustrator, please feel free to comment and share what you know!
