Thanks for posting the link, it's an interesting bit of the past.

Well, Rachel, they were fashionable at one time. In thirty years, they'll probably laugh at what we're wearing now.Just love that cardigan

I worked in a Woolworths when I was in high school. Don't remember seeing that. I still have a collection of the Coats and Clark pattern booklets. I occasionally make something from them still.
