I am a mess but I love sixties - the Beatles, design, movies, cars, the Space Race, Women’s Lib, first men on the moon, but most of all fashion. Bikini, miniskirt, PVC boots, voluminous towering beehive hairdos and make up - dramatic eyes, heavy lashes, white liner and pale lips! Skirts were shortened, colors brightened and fashion boundaries were broken. The teenager was born and girls no longer had to dress like younger versions of their mothers. I sketched some sixties inspired dolls to craft. Thanks for indulging my ’60s fantasies.
