Peter Models the Op-Art Anorak!



Readers, it's here, ahead of schedule and ready for its close-up!  (That's Versace up top, btw, not me.)

To see me model my newly completed black and white op-art anorak, just click here.



I knew my fabric had a mod Sixties vibe when I purchased it, but I didn't realize how popular op-art fashion was till I did a little research.





As Tim Gunn says, "That's a lot of look!"

I like it and I think, balanced with a solid, it's fresh, fun, and not too hard on the eyes.  I hope you agree.

Have a great day, everybody!

  1. Well-made! I didn't think I'd like it but I do. And you can save money by gaining free admission at MOMA: the bouncers will just wave you in.

  4. That beats the black one you tried on in the dressing room hands down and I am unanimous in that : ). Great photo shoot in front of the graffiti, too.

  7. The fabric is not to my taste (my eyes want to look elsewhere after a few seconds; how could you sew it?) but it is a great-looking garment that you wear well. A true original. I really like the photo shoot too.

  10. Wow! That looks really good. I expected this to be one of those 'gimmick' projects but you really pull off the op-art look.

  11. That is one hell of a funky cool anorak you've just made, Peter. As for the wig, that brought a big smile on my face this morning. Totally groovy.

  12. Neon bright Rebel and wig photo cheered up a bad morning.
    Wasn't too sure if I would, but I absolutely luv the anorak.

  13. Love it. I remember some of the fabric from the 60's and it looked the same as the wall paper in my Aunt's house.

  14. I always liked the fabric, but I love how it turned out. The garment looks even better than I thought it would. I really like the backgrounds in the photo shoot!

  15. Like it!! I discovered your blog about 6 weeks ago and have been going thru the archives, reading it all. This my first comment though.
    I just started sewing recently, a couple of months ago. I wear button up denim shirts (Wrangler ones, from Wal-Mart). I bought a pattern (Simplicity 4760). From Jo-Ann's I bought 4-oz light wash denim and Gütermann 7330 blue cotton thread. I made view B of the shirt. The sewing machine I am using can't sew a good buttonhole, so I did hand sewn ones (I Googled how to sew a proper hand sewn buttonhole). I now have McCall's 2149 and am about to make a shirt with it (view G), same fabric and thread.
    I hope to join your next shirt sew-a-long. I plan on making quite a few more, as that is the only kind of shirt I wear. Plus I have a friend that wants me to make him some, and he is going to buy them from me.

  17. Love it! Now how am I going to get that dang "I Got You Babe" out of my head?

  18. Yeah, yeah, it's magnificent, super cool, great work, blah blah blah. But I am sorta in a funk - I recently remembered that back in July you teased us with the possibility of futur sewing tips from one Miss Mary Potter... and then pffft -nada - rien de rien. Now I know the blogging life can become oppressive at times. I mean, these readers act like you OWE them something, and GOD FORBID that you spend a few days on something other than their passionate interest. But in our defense (or at least mine, since I shouldn't speak for anyone else) we (or at I) have developed a certain addiction that distorts our (my) perspective. Phew. Just needed to vent. I love serious sewing subjects but I need a break once in a while.

    1. No, no, you are absolutely right. I have been remiss....

    2. Oh boy. You don't owe us anything. We, I, get great inspiration from you. Doesn't cost us a cent to admire one another.

  19. The wallpaper behind the jazz drummer photo in this NYT feature so suits the new anorak!

    Twitter is proving to be a stream of things I did not know about...^-^

  20. Very sharp anorak! And, man, do I wish I could get my hands on some of that Versace fabric . . . can you imagine how great that would be as the lining for a very conservative black coat?
