    OMG! LOL! My mother made my sister a jumper out of this fabric in the ’90s! There are pictures of her in it! I guess it was a popular pattern!

  4. Tonya says:

    OH WOW!!! My mom made curtains in this fabric to go over the sliding glass door during her notorious “sunflowers everywhere” decorating phase in the mid ’90s. I made fun of them daily.

    I don’t know… I think they could have used more sun flowers in the background.

  11. Lauren says:

    I had a similar sunflower outfit in ’95 – Any girl whose mother sewed pattern dresses probably had a sunflower outfit in the mid 90′s!

      No, they are fabric overalls, VERY popular in the ’90s. I had like 9 of them my mother and grandmother made me through the years. Many young girls had them back then.

  20. Marnie says:

    I actually like this photo.. I mean the outfits are ridiculous but the family is rather normal looking… hmm.

  21. G says:

    I am having flashbacks of my mom making me do stupid stuff too

  22. julie says:

    No, this is what happens when moms buys too much sunflower fabric.

  23. Fred Jones says:

    The older girl has obviously outgrown the desire to dress like mom, while the little one seems to think it’s cool.

  24. binkymae says:

    I love this picture! ((*_*))

  25. Tricia says:

    I think you guys have it wrong.

    Obviously the lady grew sunflowers to match their clothes!!

  26. Em says:

    I am afraid I had this outfit in the third grade.

  27. sam says:

    I don’t see any people in this photo?

  28. Elizabeth says:

    I guess these people really, really like sunflowers.

  29. emm says:

    the blonde girl knows its only a matter of time before mom pulls out this pic on prom night…

  30. nicole says:

    oh wow! i think my playhouse had some curtains in that exact same pattern when i was little! those poor girls!

  31. Shell says:

    I’m pretty sure that those are, in fact, pants. Yep. I made that exact same pattern for sewing 4-H in the 4th grade. Party pants. That’s what there were called. Won myself a blue ribbon, even.

  32. Tim says:

    “Mom, when we said we wanted to ‘blend in’…!

  33. JJ says:
