A certain fabric will send me sailing back to my youth. I snapped this summer sailboat dress last year. The texture reminds me of pique, which was big when I was in Junior High.
The pattern is reminiscent of larger prints, which were in fashion for part of my youth.
And the style of the dress, a shift, brings to memory the stir shifts made in the sixties. My dad didn’t like my mom in shifts, so one day he hid hers in the back of the closet. She had a nice figure too. I have no idea what he hated about them. Makes me extra appreciative that Cliff has never pestered me about my clothes.
But back to fabric. What are the fabrics you remember?
Mine are wool, dotted swiss, pique, and corduroy. Loved them all!
Here’s to the fabric and the fashion of our lives.
Oh and BTW, I didn’t buy this simple shift because the price was NOT simple at all.
