Flashback Friday

This was my 4-H project in 1973. I was thirteen years old. The fabric was a double knit. In that era it was "the stuff". I wonder now why my mom let me have a photo of this outfit without a good pressing first. It sure could use it. I actually liked this outfit at the time and loved the soft green color. The collar was a newly learned skill and the skirt had a zipper. Boy oh boy, those were the days.

Look how long my newly straightened hair was. NO ONE had curly hair in 1973!!
