Fashions of the Past, Part 2

Let’s start with some vintage maternity wear.  That’s right, maternity!  Lots of these old patterns have special stretch tummy panels, the idea being to make yourself look as un-pregnant as possible.  It was a losing battle.  Who wants to wear a pencil skirt while pregnant?

Heh heh.. nothing like a double-breasted vest.

Oh geez, the 80s.

Here’s some 80s maternity-wear.. still trying to cover the pregnancy, I guess, but in this case, looking as big as a house while doing so… I don’t think it’s any better than the maternity pencil-skirt.

    No maternity clothes for me! Though that red floral number in the first pattern is quite stylish.

    Love the double breasted vests with coordinating flairs in the second pattern. Little boys were never cuter than in the early 70’s.

    Eighties clothes and hair make me cringe, both then and now. However, that 40’s Zoot suit kind of pants cut that they ripped from the 40’s is absolutely still my favorite kind of pants cut and defies the decades.

    Last ladies patterns do nothing for me. Save yourself some work, wrap a sheet around yourself and call it a day.
