Paisley From The Past

Paisley again. Yes, we like our paisley here at Gold Country Girls. All of these dresses were found in magazines. This one is from 1962:
These next three are all from 1969. A dancing blonde in a paisley print:

This gorgeous blonde is certainly pretty in pink paisley, here in an Avon advertisement :

And here is advertisement from Sears, with pink again. I had a dress that I believe was made from that very same pattern as the polka-dotted dress when I was in eighth grade:
And I think this hooded one is just gorgeous. Wish I had a dress like this, from a 1970 Seventeen magazine:
Hope you enjoyed seeing these.
Like I said, we're paisley people.

I love those, everyone of them. I had an Easter dress in 7th grade that was a pink paisley silky fabric. I had pink Capezios to go with it. I adored that outfit. I don't think I have a thing in my closet that I adore now. I better look for some paisley.

i made a turq. blue paisley 'baby doll' style dress and loved it. i also had purchased a hot pink paisley empire waisted dress for a wedding. where they are know i do not know. i found out after my moms death that many of my clothes had went to others. she woud go thru my closet regularly and give them to others. i had cousins i did not really know but they father was dead and it was tough. even though i miss many of my things i am glad my mom made sure they went where needed. i love the last hooded item also tina!
