Sew Your own Time Again!!

Let's take a look back at some crazy Sew Your Own offerings from the past.  All of these pics are from Popular Fashion Models of the 60s and 70s, but they are just so awesome, I had to repost them!!

Not sure what is groovier, Kathy's matching mittens and cap or the matching his 'n her scarves and caps!!

Colleen has a really spaced out look here.  She's probably thinking "what the heck do they have me wearing now!!"

Obviously he is man of sophisticated tastes in that sweater and, whatever that neck gear is.  Meanwhile she's like "Please stop staring at me like that."

Nothing says "I don't have a date tonight" quite like a sewing a ginormous multicolor afghan while sitting next to a wooden cat.

I cummerbund for the waist AND the top, hmmm interesting  idea!

Add a hat to our your self sewn outfit for that finishing touch!!  You'll be all the rage at the club.

Some sew your own sweaters that are rather tame by the standards of this genre.  

So we will end this post with a nice rugs that you can wear like a cape. Perfect for, well, perfect for something I'm sure, just can't think of anything at the moment!

 And what better way to get ready for bedtime than some awesome sleepwear form Aldens!!!

Besides the yellow hoodie that Kathy is wearing, you just gotta love the granny cap on the model at the top left.  Not really groovy, but still cool!!

When Life Was Groovy: JCP 1978!!!

 Ahhh, 1978.  I remember it fondly.  And boy, I'd sure like to go back to those days and forget this year!!!

A really nice pic of three of the stalwarts of catalog modeling in the 70s: Kay, Kathy, and Karen. 

Looks like we have several inset pics of Kathy on this one.  Let's check them out.....

First inset pic.....
Wow, an inset inside an inset!! 

You know I just noticed something.  In almost every one of these pics, Kathy is holding finger(s) of her left hand in her right hand.  What's up with that???? 

Repost here I know, but it proves my point!!

Aaaaaaand again.  Hmm, this is something I need to explore further in future posts.  Anyway, you just gotta love these dresses.  I haven't seen anyone where anything like that in a LONG time.  

Well, at least not a female,. Let's not go there.  Oh boy, how I REALLY miss those days.
