We had a lot of fun yesterday.
My son, daughter in law and 3 of their children are here from Minnesota.
I asked my son if he would get a few things from the back of my attic for me and he was so happy to help.
He brought out 8 boxes of clothes I had saved from various stages of my life.
They included clothes from high school, my prom dress, my silk tea dresses from college, my wedding dress, many casual clothes I had designed and my "fine" polyester double knit creations. These were all clothes I had made and designed.
Julie, Jessica and I had so much fun opening the boxes and looking at them.
We realized Jessica was about the height and size I was when I made them.
I took the "fine" polyester double knits downstairs and washed them.
When I saw how beautifully they washed and dried I wondered why we ever stopped wearing them!
I think I will start a new campaign.
BRING BACK POLYESTER DOUBLE KNITS!
We call this dress the "Safety Patrol" dress. What was I thinking when I made this? It is an original design by me. I suppose in the late 60's it was quite stylish?
