Betsey Johnson Alley Cat 1973Betsey Johnson Alley Cat 1973 (2)Betsey Johnson, in all her 1970s Bohemian glory, is seen here in a fashion spread in the September 1973 issue of The New Ingenue magazine. Betsey was the ultimate in cool fashions then, just as she continues to be 40+ years later. She did a lot of fab funky designs for Alley Cat, and even did patterns for Butterick so you could sew them yourself. I have always dug her funky vibe!

    I have a red corduroy dress with pockets and buttons down the front that has an Alley Cat by Betsey Johnson label on it. I distinctly remember wearing this dress when I was about 15 or 16 (1971-1973). My daughter is insisting that I would not have had this dress until the 1980s. Can you give me some guidance as to where to research this? Many thanks. Drury

    P.S. I f you want I can send a picture of it.
