Summer Night City

I've finished another ABBA doll outfit, this time Frida's outfit from 1978.  I actually finished Frida's outfit before I did Agnetha's, just I was missing one last piece for her outfit and it would bother me to put it up before finishing that, so...  Here it is now. :D

The second version of the outfit I ever made.  I had the concept right, I just wasn't very good at sewing so it came out kinda bad.  It's decent, but it's not the best thing in the world.
The new one.
Check out my sewing blog for a more detailed post on how I made Frida's outfit. :3

Bjorn wearing his old ABBA Costumes

Last night was either the opening or some event to celebrate the opening of the new Mamma Mia! the Party restaurant in London.  Bjorn and Benny were there, and for fun, Bjorn decided to come out wearing his outfit from the 1977 tour, and it was really nice seeing him in it again. (He mentioned the last time he wore it was 42 years ago in Perth, 1977, but he also wore it in April of 1978 for a photoshoot and November of 1978 in Japan... :3 ). 

This isn't the first time Bjorn has worn his old ABBA costumes, and that's something I love about him.  :)  Seeing as he's done this a few times now, I thought it would be a great opportunity to make a little compilation post.

In 2008, at the ABBA Fan club event, they played a video where Bjorn was wearing his old Waterloo costume.

 Then in 2014, for a TV show called Welcome to Sweden, Bjorn put on his white jumpsuit from the 1979 tour, as well as a jacket that he seems to have only one once before in Edmonton.

Then in 2018, Bjorn made an appearance on the show Better Late Than Never, wearing his white overalls from 1975.

And finally, from last night, Bjorn wore his 1977 Tour outfit.

If It Wasn't For The Nights

I haven't made any new ABBA doll costumes since switching up my dolls' bodies, so I decided that should change and finally got around to making another set of outfits.  I'm still working on Frida, Bjorn, and Benny's outfits, but so far I've finished Agnetha's outfit, so I thought I'd share. :)

These outfits are from 1978, and while ABBA only wore them for a little bit at the end of the year and a little bit in early 1979, they are some of my favorite ABBA outfits. :)  This is my third time remaking these outfits, and I am a lot happier with the way they turned out this time around.
My second attempt of this costume from 2012.  The first one I've never shared on here before I don't think, but let's just say it's bad.

New and improved. :)
