Sunday Style

Mom's Skirt - 1971

I loved Zo’s idea of continuing on the Me-Made-spirit and starting a Me-Made-Living group on flickr for everyone to share their Me-Made outfits beyond the month of May.  So each Sunday (give or take), I’m going to share a pic of an outfit that I’m wearing on the weekend.

Now this skirt isn’t exactly “me-made.”  It was, in fact, made by my mom in 1971!

Mom's Skirt - 1971

My mom told me that she wore it on New Year’s Eve when she was dating my Dad.  Isn’t the fabric awesome?  It looks like there’s strips of different fabrics sewn together but it’s actually all one piece of fabric, kind of like a cheater print.  I love the length of the skirt too, but it’s a little hard to walk in since there’s no split in the side seam.  Maybe I’m supposed to wear it with heels instead of sandals.

    That is some awesome fabric. I made a skirt in the '70s that was a purple-based stripe print of flowers, paisleys, and actual stripes. Alas, i don't have a picture of it.

    ooooooooooooooooooooooh deliciousness. is that the print on the fabric, or lots of panels? my mom had one in rainbow stripes, when it disintegrated i tried to salvage it. sadly, i was not that skilled at the time…

      It's printed that way, isn't it neato? I wish I could find fabric like that nowadays…
