All Laced Up

Look closely at the photo above.  It's an advert from 'Pins and Needles' magazine 1968. But what is it advertising? A lovely lace dress? Or is it something to do with that chic dining table?

It's both!! Send off for a fashionable lace tablecloth, and it comes with a pattern (pattern?) to turn it into a dress. Just drag it off the table, cut a hole for your head, and away you go. So groovy!
Just be warned - it's probably best not to wear it to any dinner parties. Imagine the embarassment of wearing the same thing as the hostess's dining table!

That's absolutely brilliant! In my 'punk' days I went to a party in a pink binliner but never a tablecloth.

Roaring with laughter at the "turn the fashion tables on your friends"........... I'd have needed a b****y big tablecloth!
