Modes Royale Home Pattern Catalog, Spring and Summer 1969

I've been missing in action for a couple of weeks because I've had visitors staying with me - and no time to post!   However, I'm back in business as of today, and to kick off I bring you this little item from the 1960s:

The illustration on the cover of this pattern catalogue is a reminder that fashion was not always for the young and the iconoclastic - even in the 1960s.  The suit the model is wearing would have been scorned by the dolly bird or the hippie chick, but their mothers or their older sisters would have worn it with pride.
