Little girls didn’t wear pink in the 70’s

I have been thinking about the clothes I wore as a kid. Growing up in Wellington – there were many layers, lots of corduroy, skivvys and tights. Roman sandals and stubbies for the boys. Oh and another thing – there was very little pink. I had one dress – which was a mauvy/pink – I loved it. But I wore a lot of green, red and brown, and rust!

I bought mini sized pieces of the below fabrics – I think I thought I might make something for a friends child – any interest?

If not I might end up with a waistcoat in the corduroy – but I don’t really like sleeveless things – my arms get cold – isn’t that weird?

 

Navy Trees

 

The above owl print is genuine 70’s fabric – and indicative of the colour palette – very earthy. With owls again popular, this proves “There is nothing new under the sun”.
