Vintage sewing and fashion ephemera with a few other finds from my travels.
I remember those styles, but what I didn't realise at the time was how much they all looked like maternity dresses! I suppose it was convenient for anyone who "had to" get married (as we used to say).
They all look like Barbie outfits. What's the deal with the crazy 'Gypsy Girl Pants Dress'?! Grandmothers would be having fainting fits at the wild 'now' pattern.
I had a prom dress in 1970 that looked almost exactly like the baby blue empire waisted/scoop neck dress with the lace under the bust. That Empire waist was EVERYWHERE.
I like Gypsy Girl! Took me a while to work out that the pink and blue brides were in fact bridesmaids... or were they? Did bridesmaids really wear such veils in those days?
I hope those were bridesmaids...most of those outfits wouldn't pass muster even for a guest nowadays!
