Well making my WMS card last night has started me on another nostalgic trip - I couldn't resist another flick through my old Honey magazines. Most of you won't remember this publication but when I was a keen fashion student in the 60's it was my favourite. I poured over it every month. My favourite bit was Capable Kate - written as a diary page with great ideas for updating and individualising our wardrobes, mostly using the dressmaking, embroidery and needlework skills we all learned at school, and in my case at college, in those days.
So here are four pages for your amusement - I'd love to know what you think of them. I remember I was so keen at this time that I made a new outfit for almost every weekend - often from furnishing fabric, lining material or even old curtains and tablecloths! Of course there were no charity shops (thrift stores) then, which would have been my idea of heaven as an impoverished student! Its hard to realise these pages are 43 years old.... where has all that time gone! Honey is hugely collectable nowadays and rather expensive on that well-known auction site. I was lucky enough to buy these issues about 10 years ago when online collecting was in its infancy - how I wish I'd kept all my original copies.
And just to finish off this wallowing in the past, here is a scrapbook page I created some time ago from a newspaper cutting about my competition win when I was that keen fashion student - dolly daydream got me exactly right.... it was all just a daydream!
I'm linking Kate's little black dress to the Vintage Black Friday thread at The French Cupboard - black & white was de rigueur in 1967!
