Electric Blue-galoo!

Oh how I used to love this movie...



Breakdance 2: Electric Boogaloo

My brother and I would watch it repetitively, and practice breakdance moves again, and again, and again..

This touch of nostalgia occured when I found an awesome pair of sandals from Vinnies on Monday, half price.. why thankyou, please! Electric BLUE-galoo I thought...




Not only that, but I found this 70's tennis outfit pattern, for a massive 50c! I am in the process of making the tunic top. Don't expect however, to see me playing tennis in it.


I found a purple zip for 20c which fits the tunic top perfectly. I've never stitched a zip before, so this is a new challenge. In-between my boogaloo breakdance practice (uh-huh!!), this has been taking a bit of time...

Work In Progress

Did you see the fabric I am using for the tunic top? Yup, electric blue again, $2 from my local op shop, loving it.

"Electric blue (colour) is a very bright color reminiscent of a spark, named after the colour of an argon sign. It is very similar to cyan."

Those shoes are HOT!
Zips are easy once you get the hang of them. I always make the seam using the longest stitch possible, open it out flat and iron it, then pin the zip to the back of the seam and sew it on from the right side of the garment, then unpick the large stitches and you're finished! But don't ask me about invisible zips, they are my nemesis.

Loving the bright colours, always remember how black and navy England went in winter, was so dull, but fun to rebel.

Oh those shoes! SO clean and in such good condition. Yeah - zips suck a bit - I advise lots of basting first and keep small children away as swearing is often involved. Man, I love vintage patterns.
