A Studded Outfit from the 1970s


In the 1970s decade, when I was making a lot of my clothes, I made a fabulous outfit. It was a matching bomber type jacket and pants made out of burgandy fabric, probably a polyester type. It was a heavy-weight fabric.

But there was something special about this outfit. It had hundreds of silver studs that I put on it by hand. I remember sitting evening after evening pressing those studs in with a tool. I think I still have the tool.

I may have a photo somewhere of this outfit, but I don’t remember ever seeing one. If I find it, I will post it. I don’t know what happened to the outfit. I’m sure it ended up in a yard sale!
