Polyester Memories - Caftans and Bell Bottoms

year_born: 1957

memory_description: Hi Gran,

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw the caftan and bell-bottom patterns while looking at your site! My Mom made about a dozen of those caftans in all the LOUD polyester fabric(if you want to call it), when I was in highschool. She even made some for the other ladies in the family. Christmas was like an acid trip! Way too much color early Christmas morning!!Thanks so much for the memory, and making me feel really old, knowing I made bell-bottoms for myself. But I NEVER wore one of those crazy caftans! Well, never say never, I guess it could happen. But please God, NO!
