Ah, those were the sartorial days! I was looking through old photos for Throwback Thursday on FB, and found this gem from the spring of 1971, too good not to share with you here. My friend college Barbara S. had come home with me for a weekend, or maybe it was Easter -- but check out those outfits! I had made that dress (yes, it really is purple paisley) and still remember how soft the fabric felt; I think it was viyella. The unflattering shoes are definitely vintage, not to mention the long hair, wire-rimmed glasses, and Barb's purple velveteen bell bottoms and embroidered shirt.
I have some other gems from those decades that I'll post eventually.
