1975 Modeling handmade clothes - don't you love the school shoes and knee socks?
My oldest sister is wearing a dress she made of wool plaid. I remember thinking she worked really hard to get the plaids matched at the seams. She entered it in the Make it Yourself with Wool competition as well as the 4-H dress revue. I am wearing a pinafore and dress made by her as well. I LOVED that outfit and could hardly wait for her to outgrow it. My middle sister is wearing a lovely dress she made out of a mushroom print fabric.
Fabrics from the two outfits on the left can be seen in my first quilt. Go have a look; it's a riot of 70's prints. I finished that quilt in 1976 just in time for the bicentennial celebrations. It even won a big rosette ribon at one of the local fairs that summer!
