You never know where inspiration will strike next! Check out this great little Simplicity catalog from March 1976. Out on the prairie we wear denim every day, all day, but only one way. Levis or Wranglers jeans are the only way to go. I enjoyed this crazy yet refreshing look at different ways to use denim. 

How about some crazy patchwork? I want to see those jeans at the next rodeo!

Add some fabric trim or use some of those great stitches on your machine. Denim handles topstitching beautifully.

I thought the use of red piping was interesting.

Adding some bling is easier than ever with today's Bejewelers and BeDazzlers.

Oh Yes! Embrace denim's formal side! These dresses actually look pretty comfy and I love that heavy white lace.

Whether it's appliques or miles of trim denim makes the perfect canvas to embellish upon.

The Shirtdress! Who doesn't love them? Even my Mother had one!

That ends our first peek from the not so distant past. What do you think? Are you ready to sew with denim yet?
