Not-So Wordless Wednesday: My mom in 1967

I think that what I love about this picture so much is the pattern on her dress.  You can’t get any more 60’s than that. (In my head at least – I never lived in the 60’s!)

    I’ve lived through the 60s, and I believe you are right. It could also fit the 70s. (Some people have said the 60s didn’t really start until the 70s, but they exaggerate.) What I love best about this photo is the expression. It’s happy and satisfied and facetious all at once. Reminds me of the “Cheshire Cat” in Alice in Wonderland. I’ll bet she had a great sense of humor.ReplyCancel

    That was a print that was popular back in the 1800’s. My Mom had a shaul that belonged to my great grandmother that was the same print. It was called paisley. Glad to see it. Mary Ellen AubeReplyCancel

    Not just the paisley pattern but the style looks just like the dress I made in Home Ec in the 9th grade which was – gasp – in the 60’s!ReplyCancel

    My mom graduated in 1972, so this is probably the very late 60’s. :) She probably did make it herself! I know that she made her prom dress. I was born in 1976, so I missed out on these styles, but I have lots of baby pictures in some interesting clothes. :)ReplyCancel
