Type of clothing:
When it was popular:
Description: Doing embroidery on our own clothes was very popular. I remember doing extensive embroidery on pant legs, esp. levis, on wrap around skirts, around the collar and neckline of peasant blouses and t-tunics. It was very 'in' to embroider all over levi jackets, both to repair holes, sew on patches, and to decorate with names, flowers, suns, peace signs and hearts.

I'm still doing it! Embroidery adds a personal,artsy touch. It adds an individual touch to what you wear and I think the hand embroidered clothes from the 70's were unique and emplified the spirit of that generation.

When I was around 8 years old ('74), my sister embroidered a pair of purple jeans, on the back yoke above the pockets. I loved those jeans and the embroidery. I wished I kept them, they were one of a kind.

During the first half of the 70s, we used to embroidery denim shirts for art projects in school and in church youth group. It was really popular at the time to wear denim work shirts embroidered with stars and rainbows and sunbursts and butterflies and flowers and seagulls, for men and women.
