I was looking through my tons of paper ephemera and found this 1969 booklet. If anyone wants the patterns-pm me. That 2 piece bathing suit looks groovy!! And I love the Bonnie and Clyde Look suit.





I added some more  pics that were in the pattern booklet. Oh-if you want the pattern, be sure to pm a snailmail address.
I wore a dress exactly like the orange crocheted one, but in purple, to my ninth grade dance Cool

Those are awesome!  Before I start bugging you for patterns (tee-hee-hee), are the bottom two knit or crochet?  Thanks hon!

The orange one is crochet and the grey suit is knit. There are several other patterns I'll add when I have time.

FYI...the bikini is crochet, the dress is crochet, the suit is knitted and the cover vest, skirt and pants are knitted. I'll take pics of some of the other cool clothes in this pattern book, too!
I had a dress just like the orange one in purple for my Freshman dance many years ago!!

I am LOVING that these models are TRUE sized, not sticks or skeletons!

I should point out that the base pattern for these are size 10-with adjustments for 12/14. I think the normal sized models are cool,too!!

I love the orange dress ! It's so up-to-date this winter ! What a pity I don't crochet well... I would have asked you for the pattern.
