Vintage Thingie Thursday 3/4/10

Let's all gather up all those vintage-one of a kind things we love and post them.  I'm joing Suzannne at
Colorado Lady, won't you come along and join me.




When I was a senior in High School, Rosedale High School in Kansas City, KS  class of 1965 we had an assembly for just the "girls".   Thats when boys had NO desire to sew anything!!! I knew there was a reason I kept all this stuff.  Simplicity Pattern Company put on a fashion show with clothes made from each of the patterns.   This was the pamphlet they passed out.


I had this one (black and white polka dots)
My prom dress was like this one on the right.

Hope you enjoyed fashions from the past.

Oh Ann Sweetie...
What a wonderful keepsake you have here. I love the patterns and your prom dress must have been beautiful. Those were beautiful days when girls really dressed like girls. Times sure have changed. Sometimes I wonder what happened to feminine. The poncho coat and pill box hat make me think of Jackie O. How beautiful she looked in these styles, they were so made for her.

Thank you for sharing sweetie. I have so enjoyed this wonderful blast from the past. Have a great evening. Country hugs...Sherry

What a fun post Ann. I loved sewing when I was in school. From there I sewed so many of the clothes I wore. I think your prom dress was gorgeous. My third child was born in 1965. Wow, time just rushes by and then you realize you are not young anymore. Except in your heart. Smile! I loved seeing the patterns. good job on this post.
Hugs, Jeanne

I really enjoyed seeing the old patterns again. You were smart in keeping them. My mother made all our clothes when we were growing up. She made them from printed flour sacks, no store bought material. I never liked to sew. Had no patience for it. Great post for VTT.

That's an interesting pamphlet. Some of the styles look vaguely familiar, but others look very homemade.

What great pictures of the past and past fashions, loved your prom dress, very chic looking. I have to say, I loved your pics of Colorado, that area is close to where we have our cabin....we must be close to your son. Have a great VTT...really enjoyed your post!

The old patterns are so cool! Your prom dress must have been lovely, what a great keepsake :-) Bella

Old patterns are great! I love that polka dot dress, too, especially the little ruffle around the neckline.

Wouldn't it be great to have a time machine and be able to go back and watch that fashion show? Thanks for giving us a glimpse with your program. It's amazing how many of these "retro" looks are back in fashion and reissued patterns. I really enjoyed seeing these!

How very cool. I love old patterns. Those were the days when they taught sewing and cooking in Home Ec.

My prom dress for my Junior year (1970) looked just like yours. Mine was orange dotted swiss with a white ribbon at the empire waist!

Such nice patterns! My mother used to sew for us girls all the time, but we did some sewing at school as well.

Vintage clothing is the best! Brings back fond memories of my mom and aunt wearing them. Thanks for sharing!

I loved seeing all the clothes from "back in the day". Your prom dress was gorgeous. Happy VTT and have a lovely weekend.

Sarah said...

Awesome! I wish fashion was like that now, why more interesting than jeans and a t-shirt. :-)

Tara Beaulieu said...

These are really great! I wish they still taught "home ec" the way they used to in schools. It is so watered down now (at least around here) that I left high school not even learning to thread a bobbin! (Thank heavens my mom taught me!)

SueWis said...

How fun! A lot of those are back in style now.

Our Back Porch said...

These are wonderful! I was born in 1965. Thanks for stopping by. Happy VTT!

What a fabulous keepsake...and much better than the dresses made up in the Sears or Wards catalogs of the time!

I like your prom dress! Happy VTT!

Baba said...

Hi Ann, Thanks for sharing your patterns from the past.. the clothes looked better back in the 60's.. the clothes styles look bad today..I wish that Home EC. was still in the schools today.. hugs, Baba
