Summer fashions a la 1964.
|Needle and Yarn Magazine, Volume 1, Number 3|
Simple dresses were sleeveless or with raglan sleeves. Princess lines and back zippers. The full skirts of the 50’s and early 60’s are replaced with straight skirts for dress, a-line for a casual look. Pants are still straight legged and shorts are starting to get shorter. Shoes had pointy toes….the chunky look had yet to make its debut. Easy to Make/Easy to wear drawstring dresses are in order for a sweet mother-daughter look.
These patterns were available for 50 cents through mail order.
