Vintage Thursday Thingie: That '70's Patchwork Book

According to the author, Rachel Martens," Here are authentic old patterns for quilt blocks which appeared in FARM JOURNAL from the Twenties".

Well...

I confess. I had a jacket with fringe.


Too cool for school


Cowl neck sweater, ironed hair?

Remember, in Fashion one decade you're in and the next-you're out!

I had a patchwork skirt in the 70's so I'm not going to make me another one!

Yes I do remember these fashions. Were you surprised at who won Project Runway last night?

I'm pretty sure that last outfit you shared was designed by Kenley!

Cute 70's flashback. What great items. Loved it.

Reminds me of being about 8 years old when my Mom and Aunts are dressed in those outfits...or something very near. ;) I heart the 70's!

This 1970's book is terrific. I love
the style and colors of the fashion!
I think fashion goes much quicker
these days.... 15 seconds and you
can be on the internet with the
newest fashion style.

I'd like to say I don't remember those fashions - but I do. That Man's (?) vest would look great with a leisure suit!
