Dresses I Like

Cute Dresses from the 60's and 70's
   I am getting ready to choose a fall/autumn pallette for the sew along with  Sarah at Rhinestone  and  Telephones Blog.  As I was thinking about the different peices , I wanted to make.. I took a moment to decide, what style dresses I like? These are some of my favorites.

Isn't this yellow one cute?  Love the green too!
Who could resist the home journal ladies' dresses?

My all time favorite
is Olivia Waltons dresses from the tv show. The Waltons.  I love this scalloped collar wrap dress,
 and I also liked the button up , shirt waist dress with the flared skirt and kick pleat..  All her dresses
are so modest and well worn.   I so admire the tv character,  Olivia. Her  dresses were so  wonderful and she was  such a  role model.


  1. I love the Waltons but haven't seen it in years!! I love those 60/70s dresses.

  2. I have NEVER seen a Waltons episode. Not one, but I did used to watch Little House on the Prairie and I think that is where my love for house dresses started. I loved Ma Ingalls dresses.

  3. Judy, I agree, the dresses you have highlighted are perfect. They are practical yet lovely, perfect for so many occasions. I think this style is timeless! There is something so nice about a garment that is comfortable yet stylish!
