Simplifying Design in the Sixties: Simplicity 7677
This re-issued sewing pattern dates to the 1960s and is meant to meant to satisfy the desire for quick results: done in a Jiffy. Especially impatient girls and young women, one suspects from the pattern illustration which has very young women in low heels with their hair in a ponytail or an up-do with loose locks below. Both mini and lower hemline were included, and a bare majority of young women wore minis in the 1960s while most over-thirty women opted for a lower hemline. 
The pattern is “easy cut * easy sew” the front of the envelope tells us and there are only two main pattern pieces it assures us. But I am struck by how much sewing is still needed. Those two main pattern pieces have darts at the bust and the waistline to make its A-line shape. A zipper closes the back. Interfacing is called for, so facings for the neckline and the armholes must be included. And then straps must be cut out and attached. Plus the two dressier versions require hand-sewing to attach the trim along the strips.
One trim is daisies, a very common motif of the 1960s, and one that is childish or youthful, perfect for the teenage Baby Boomers, the other trim is rhinestones which would was more sophisticated. The dress fabrics recommended came in the everyday, washable cottons or the fancy silks like shantung, brocade, damask, or satin, so this was a flexible pattern for all its simplicity.
This pattern was clearly more simple than average dress before the 1960s which often had both a detailed bodice with collar, sleeves an cuffs, and a pieced skirt with pleats or godets. On the other hand, it is far more complicated than some easy patterns of the 1970s which dumbed down garment design to an amazing degree.
This dress comes in modern sizes and can be found at your local fabric store or here online: https://simplicity.com/simplicity/s9594

If no one attempts to recreate this actual Gilded Age look from the 1883 Vanderbilt Ball for the MET Gala, then what’s even the point?

Denim Jacket
c.1850
United States
​This jacket would have been worn over a woman’s work dress or blouse, most likely while she labored outdoors. Its construction mimics the fashionable hourglass silhouette of the period, with tucks that cinch at the wrists and natural waistline. Denim is typically thought of as a menswear textile, but it was also common in women’s workwear during the 19th century.

Nothing brings me more joy than people learning from history and then modernizing it up a bit.
Like you wanna grow your hair long? Stop washing it so often and brush it more to keep it clean. Your hair will be way healthier too. And stop cutting it (and use a boar bristle brush, it’ll work better as it’ll actually absorb the oils, distribute them better, and work a hell of a lot better than non-absorbent plastic would) Edit: Early on, some well meaning person kindly asked me to inform you that the boar bristle brush technique does not work on curly hair, however I have since been informed by multiple parties that it does! My hair is as straight as a pin so use your own judgment!
You want to keep cool in the summer? Out with the polyester and in with the linen and cotton. Natural fibers are going to keep you cooler because they’re literally made to breathe
You want to preemptively stop the underwire in your bra from poking through? There’s a very simple embroidery stitch you can do that the Edwardians used to do to stop their corset boning from coming through.
We don’t have to just learn from our ancestors mistakes, we can learn from their stakes too

[Evolution of furisode fashion from the 1950′s to 2020′s], handy charts by shop KomonoHana. Please note that the trends shown and describe here are the most notable evolutions - that doesn’t mean everybody was following those trends to the T ;)
1950-1970′s - Showa style
After wwii, a new era began for kimono, trying to recover from harships of wartime. Prototype of modern Seijin no hi was held for the first time in 1946. The economic miracle made possible for ordinary households to own or at least rent furisode outfits, which were in the past mostly only affordable for wealthy families.
Style favored bold embroidery with gold foil etc, and vivid oranges and emerald greens were very popular colors.
New methods and rules for kitsuke/dressing appeared as many people didn’t have the knowledge/means to dress in traditional furisode attire as before: => Expensive and heavy maru obi fell out of fashion, and fukuro obi became the norm (only patterned on one side, they are cheaper and easier to produce).  => Costly and cumbersome layered kimono called kasane also disappeared, replaced by decorative collar called date eri mimicing layers.
Tumblr media
1980-1990′s - Bubble style
The economic bubble from that decade saw a big demand for consumer products. Same went for kimono items.
Demand for embroidery and gold foil decreased, but glossy rinzu (raised ground patterned fabric) was super popular. Small scattered patterns were a staple of the period.
Fukuro obi also became longer, making elaborated novelty belt knots possible (before that era, bunko, or fukura suzume for example were the norm).  
Tumblr media
1990-2000′s - Antique kimono boom
When the economic bubble finally burst, the amount of money spent for Seijin no hi furisode dramatically decreased.
Little by little, antique kimono became fashionable. One reason, beside obvious cost, might have been the huge popularity of Akina Nakamori's music video [DESIRE - Jônetsu]. In any case, antique/vintage kimono shops opened everywhere.
That decade liked deep, crisp ground colors. Because of the second hand popularity, patterns were often old fashioned, antique ones.
Ready to wear kimono -sometimes designed by Stars of the era- started to become available, with often the promised of being easily washable - something difficult to do with silk kimono.
Tumblr media
2000-2010′s - In your face! Ageha’s kimono
In reaction against to “old fashion” feeling of the past decade, style became more youthful and extravagant.
Gyaru magazine [Koakuma Ageha] made the hight ponytail fashionable, and that hairdo became a staple of that style, often embelished with large floral ornaments.
Contrasting colors like white, black, and purple were very popular. More is more was everywhere, with use of glitters, rhinestones, lace, frills, fur, pearls...
The “oiran” style also saw a trend, with furisode worn sexily off shoulder with obi belt knotted up front.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
2010′s-2020′s - Between classic and modern
Furisode crazed fashion trends of the past decade became a bit more quiet, and offer diversified.
“Retro modern” furisode appeared, mixing reinterpreted traditional motifs and graphic/geometrical patterns. Colors tended to be really “pop”, not afraid to mix turquoise and bright pink for example. 
On the other side of the spectrum, pastel colors were also in high demand.
Hairstyles returned to more classic buns, with notable fact that braids popularity rose.
Tumblr media
2020′s~ - Chic and Romantic
Reiwa era is still pretty young, but new trends are emerging nonetheless.
Light, natural colors are fashionable atm, such as light greys or beiges.
Busy patterns are also losing ground, as quiet, or even plain mujifurisode are becoming easier and easier to find.
Cute frilly accessories make a return, with lace, pearl, etc. It can be as headress, or for undershirt, or even gloves.
Western shoes are more and more considered acceptable.
Hairstyle are light and romantic, with loose buns sometimes decorated with dried flowers for example.

"Nudie Suits" is a name referring to the colorful, heavily-decorated suits made by American designer Nudie Cohn (1902-1984), most famously worn by country music stars of the 20th Century.
