Earlier this year I went to my sister in law’s Hen weekend up in The Lakes. It was a fab weekend and feels like such a long time ago, and to be honest it was!
The Saturday night was an 80’s themed party. Now, I am ever so young and don’t remember the 80’s. No, no that wasn’t me wearing neon socks and neon & black fingerless gloves. No, definitely not me!
Anyhow, I didn’t seem to have any 80’s related clothing left in my wardrobe, so I decided to crack out the sewing machine. I did a quick hunt online and found this super 80’s monochrome knit, it was just £5.99 per metre from Minerva Crafts, which I think was a bit of a bargain!
I wanted to make a batwing top but didn’t have time to totally draft something from scratch so I based my top on the free Batwing Dress tutorial by Mollytov.
Of course the outfit would not have been complete without a splash of neon. I say a splash, but I bought quite a lot of neon yellow stretchy stuff. I made a mini (ish) skirt, a pair of leg warmers and a scrunchie! Totally classy, but very 80’s, no?
