I received a crocheted vest like the one in the top picture for a high school graduation present. It was in the style like the guy's, and it was solid navy, I wore it with navy slacks and a white shirt underneath. I thought I had it going on.

The last two skirts are really cool. I was wondering if anyone ever took the time to knit those pant suits. lol. I never saw womans crochet pants before.

If I had legs like that second shot, I'd make that self-satisfied look all the time too, haha!

I wouldn't let a man kiss me if he was wearing that vest. Even if I was wearing one.

Oh my! I feel ancient, ancient, ancient. I made the vest on the girl in the top picture when I was a freshman in high school and, horrors, I WORE it a lot. And everybody loved it! It was very fashionable in the 70's. Mine was black with a red and white flower. I probably looked like a black widow spider. I bet I still have the instructions.

I actually like the striped dress in the second-to-last photo. The vests... not so much!

Yep, my mom made that top picture vest for me in about 4th grade, mine was navy blue and light blue. I loved that! She also taught me how to crochet, and I made small squares, and used them for Barbie blankets! Good times!
