Read­ers share their favourite fash­ion mem­o­ries

YOURS (UK) - - Remember When -


This photo was taken in the early Six­ties. I’m wear­ing one of those pleated dresses where you could cut it to the length you wanted with­out hav­ing to hem it. I styled it with white shoes and the fash­ion­able bouf­fant hair of the time – of course! Mrs Joyce Shep­pard, Worces­ter


Here I am on the right with my friend Sue rocking our big hair. We went to the sa­lon ev­ery Satur­day to achieve this look – our hair was so stiff that it hardly moved all week! Plenty of lac­quer was needed in those days. We are still the best of friends af­ter 55 years. Chris­tine Young, Southamp­ton


I was on hol­i­day with my best friend Heather in Torquay when this was taken. Heather is on the left in a cerise pink dress and I’m on the right wear­ing a cream and brown dress – we made these out­fits our­selves. We’ve been friends for 65 years and still buy ma­te­ri­als for sewing and ex­change ideas for craft projects. Jan­ice Brown, by email


This was taken at our friend’s wed­ding in the au­tumn. Mar­garet, on the right, chose a dress in shades of plum with light beige ac­ces­sories. My dress was a ter­ra­cotta colour and my green shoes were dyed to match my hand­bag and hat. The tights I wore made the short dresses far more com­fort­able. Sylvia Pink, Dorset
