I was at an estate sale on Friday and came across a drawer full of seventies kids clothing. It was a blast from the past. I was a kid in the seventies and eighties and wore clothes just like them. Striped tube socks, shorts, old school Kinney sneakers, and polyester bellbottoms! There was even a Marineland Park T-shirt. Marineland shut down in the eighties but I loved going there as a kid. I had to buy these clothes!
Being a tomboy I wouldn’t be caught dead in one of those Holly Hobbie maxi dresses but these outfits below?
My mom could not stop laughing when she saw these pictures. She said they reminded her so much of my brother and I when we were little.
Now for those of you who remember these days here are a few more flashbacks of clothing you might have worn:
I had a pair of these indestructable Toughskins from Sears.
Garanimals matching clothing from Sears held a lot of playground status.
I think these dresses are adorable now but I hated them when I was little!
This would have been more up my alley.
Maybe they should ad some toupees and some golf clubs for these little guys to wear and use?
Below are some sewing patterns I unearthed on Etsy for those of you who would like to try making some groovy duds for your own kids.
So what’s the verdict on kids seventies clothing? Love them or leave them?
