Yves Saint Laurent + Halston - Fashioning the 70´s.

This fascinating publication is the first to examine side by side the careers and work of two of the biggest names in 20th-century fashion, Yves Saint Laurent (1936–2008) and Halston (1932–1990). Their designs—chic, sexy, and glamorous—came to exemplify the 1970s, a singular and dynamic era in fashion history.

  1. "Oh, the irony". Back in the 1970's, I was a high-school English teacher in Saginaw, Michigan (USA). I was sewing, using almost exclusively Vogue patterns, which I could make straight out of the envelope, except for shortening them as I am 5'2" tall, although knowing how to make a SBA would have been of benefit. The two college courses I took were concentrated on aspects of tailoring (I got an A in both) but I knew "diddly squat" about fitting and pattern alterations. I never looked through the McCalls pattern catalogue and as a result did not know of Halston's patterns. I would have snapped many of them up as they would have completely suited my lifestyle at the time. Darn!

  2. I actually made the M6151 Halston. Not terribly well. It was in dusty rose gauze. I wore the shit out of it, though. I guess I was young and cute enough that no one paid attention my floppy facings!

  3. I Hamletta. Not yet made any of these but M6151 is one of my favorites. I think it's a timeless and wearable in any occasion. I'm glad you like it. Thank you !!
