Simplicity 4232

in 1950s,1970s

The 1950s were all class. The 1970s were all clash. Let’s throw ‘em together and see what happens:

The pattern is Simplicity 4232 and the fabric is a startlingly loud printed corduroy. I love it to bits. And the two-era mashup will offend vintage pedants no end. Maybe their heads will explode. Tee hee.
