Rocking the Look 1975 Style

Yes that's me aged 8 in the glorious floral cords complete with orange ric rac braid round the bottoms which my Mum made and were an absolute favourite of mine. I have no recollection of the orange tank top but I suspect either Mum or my Auntie M knitted that. Loving Dad's purple flares...just fabulously groovy. From the info on the back this was taken in February 1975 so this is what I would have been dancing my little socks off to infront of the TV on a Thursday night when TOTP was on. It was one of the highlights of the week as I was allowed to stay up late to watch it. Mum's been sorting out the photos!

I much preferred this one.

PS My Mum has just confirmed that she did indeed make the tank top but it was crocheted not knitted!


  1. Glad you enjoyed it Sam!

  2. Now my dad was never that funky. He's still in the grey or brown 'slacks' that he was wearing 40 years ago. xx

  3. LG- cords are more my Dad's style these days!
