Aren't these outfits, below, cute?
From a vintage Seventeen magazine, they combine calico prints with bandanna-type prints in what I believe is a fabulous pairing. Recently, I came across a few items in thrift shops that have that same sort of style. I found some quilt squares, like the two below and the two at the bottom of this post:
And also this patchwork tablecloth, which has squares of fabric sewn into sort of a checkerboard design, with coordinating prints in red, black and white:
I really like these combos; so yes, indeed, I truly am a calico bandanna fan!
