Let's take a trip back to the Summer of Love with McCall's May Fashion Digest from 1967. It's totally groovy~
|I love that floral print!|
On the cover is a super-cute yoked tent dress.. with nice big pockets if you want 'em... I really love this style... you could color block it too for extra 60s style!

WOW look at all these pants! From long 'n' skinny to culottes, to that flare leg bell-bottom with sassy bared midriff.

Now here's the "Pucci-Look" wardrobe... designed by McCall's "in the style of" Pucci.. who was SUPER hot at the time. You could buy fabrics that were Pucci style and get the expensive look for much less money when you made it yourself. :)
