History Of The Garment
Rather than purchase their own 1970’s ready-made clothes women were turning their hands once again to making their own clothes and putting their own style on what they wore. Crochet and knitting experienced a renaissance in the 1960s and 1970s when its home-made quality and implied youthfulness struck a chord. A variety of commercial patterns was available, allowing women to create their own looks. Fashion designers of the era also utilised crochet techniques as a construction method or decorative feature.
