  1. i never wore designs like this in 68 but orange was big and i had a orange dress the same color as the one on the dummy in the photo. also had a matching orange hat since at that time we still wore hats to church.

  2. I love these fabrics, especially the second picture! I never knew about all those wild things happening in 68!

  3. This post is divine. I LOVE textiles...have been sewing for 65 years. I love the feel of all fibers. These fabrics are absolutely beautiful. I;d give anything to be able to attend such an exciting exhibition.

  4. Wow, such amazing textiles and the vibrant colours, the second one reminds me of a tapestry, it has a story to tell.
