I could have fit right in that photo too!  And guess what I found at Kohls--those body shirts that snapped at the crotch.  We may have worn those low slung hip huggers, but we didn't show belly.

My hair was like that too.  I remember pulling it up into a high pony tail and rolling it around orange juice cans since they were the biggest rollers I could use.  Took forever to dry and I don't know how I possible slept that way, but it did straighten out the curls.

That photo looks much like a wedding I was in back in the 70s.

 I have patterns from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and beyond.  Lisa was thrilled to be able to look through actual "retro" patterns and not reproductions! 

LOL, I still have patterns I used or bought from the 80's,  bought on sale and some I used, some I just wanted to use.  I really need to thin the herd, I also have baby patterns, but those I use sometimes, when I make clothes as gifts for other people (doesn't happen often).  Glad she found some she liked.

You got that right!    I even still HAVE those body shirt patterns!   They were absolutely AWESOME with jeans.   They obviously stayed tucked in and gave you such a *sleek* silhouette with the hip huggers!   Ahhhh ... youth is wasted on the young.  :-)

My DD used to get so angry with me when I would mutter that.

Now that she is 50 she understands.

I loved hip huggers, they were the first female jeans that fit prior all jeans came from the boys department.  I was in jr high.  I could not wear body shirts, none were long enough to get snapped.

Does any one remember H.A.S.H. jeans?
