mom's scraps--part three
These are sophisticated prints that my mother used for her clothing--dresses, coat linings, blouses. All are 100% cotton. When you think of the 1960s and fashion, popular images are of the hippie and youth culture. These are the fabrics respectable women were wearing.
She bought them at JC Penney and were the earliest she remembers with selvage notations, which I include with each photograph. The term "Never Misbehaves" was in reference to the fabric not shrinking or bleeding, not to the character of the women who wore them!
