Alright, this is surely going to date me… Yesterday I was skimming through Decor8 and came across this dress above and starting having serious flashbacks. The photo below is of me in college in 1984 and I made that dress. I kinda think it might have been a Jessica McKlintock pattern? The 80’s are now vintage and that makes me feel *old*. I just thought you might get a little laugh out of that old photo.
What do you remember or like about the 80’s? I remember Flashdance and torn shirts, lots of ruffly, poufy, big hair kinds of things. I wish I had more photos but I’ve lost most of them.
And… what are you doing over the weekend? I’m digging out my Dear Jane blocks… and fixing the leaky kitchen faucet… and mowing the lawn (if it doesn’t rain)… and dinner with friends. Happy Long Weekend to my U.S. friends. There was a 6 mile back-up on I-90 last night of folks trying to get out of town. That is exactly why we got out of town last weekend!
