clothes for the places you go - 1966


I ran across this chart while sorting through my vintage sewing ephemera. It's from a 4-H club in 1966 and tells young girls what type of clothing to wear to different places. I love the distinction between shopping in a small town and shopping in a large town. On the back was this poster on how to look your best every day:

We had dinner at a semi nice restaurant the other night-I wish I'd had that chart to show some of the other diners;) They needed some fashion advice.

I always love the gold you uncover and share here Crystal!! :)
