Matching Outfits

Knit Pic

“Me, my mom, my stepdad, my brother, and my stepbrothers. My parents had those sweaters made by a family friend. I felt like an idiot wearing it at the time but looking back I think it’s hilarious. And I think my mom still has the sweaters.”

Jean Team

“This family photo was taken in the early 90’s in Iowa. I have no idea why we were all wearing denim.”

Denim Divas

“The high waist pants, crisp jean shirts and of course the hair, courtesy of overnight foam rollers. Oh the 90s.”

Everybody Do The Dinosaur

“Photo of my family and me (on the left) in the 80’s. No lie, this was a casual Saturday afternoon on our way to the mall! Just HaleyASaurus, MommyASaurus, and HeidiASaurus traveling around in our ‘Wish We Were A Dinosaur Family’ sweats!”

Prairie Home Companions

“This is me when I was 2 1/2 yrs old and my sister was 5 yrs old. Our last name is really the Waltons and we loved to watch Little House on the Prairie as a family. Mom loved to sew and make matching outfits. This one by far was the most eye catching with the matching bonnets with the dresses.”

Get Into The Groovy

“This was taken in the Fall of 1970.  My dad was studying for a PhD in Theatre, so he was taking a costuming class.  For some reason, he decided that it would be a good idea to make the family matching outfits.  Apparently, I was the only one brave enough to show my true feelings.”

Flower Power

“I thought it would be fun for me to make matching outfits for my mom and my daughter and I. It was the 60s and these very large flower prints were very popular. I was so proud of my sewing abilities and my fake hair!”

Denim Days

“Every year my mother wanted a nice family photo and this time around she chose our outfits. Matching jean dresses for my sister and I, jean dress for her (with that awesome big hair that she permed) and a jean shirt for my dad. (Plus I don’t know where we are all looking…but it wasn’t at the camera.) This is in honor of my mother who passed in 2015 from Melanoma.”

Patterns

“This my younger brother and I, taken around 1970, when the Partridge Family was a big hit. The vests were crushed velvet and our hair was plastered with Dippity-do so it would stay in place.”
