Groovy Vintage 1970 Rit Tie-Dye Electric Satin!

Vintage 1970 Rit Tie-Dye Electric Satin - FinnfemmeTie-Dye was HUGE in the early 1970s, and Rit Dye Co. was having a heyday. “Rit invents ELECTRIC SATIN – Simplicity says it’s shocking!”

This 1970 Rit ad showcased tie-dying satin fabric, and then sewing up an ‘electrifying’ Simplicity Pattern. The sewing patterns are 8210, 8245, and 8182. Most every female knew how to sew in 1970, due to the requirement (for girls) of Home Economics classes. The whole point was to make something uniquely yours by creating your own print. Then sewing it up yourself added to that one-of-a-kind outfit.

I think the effect is rather groovy! 🙂

Peace out, Marilyn
