Simplicity feed sack poster, 1989

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | April 24, 2019

I do not remember this part of the 1980s.

This is poster is promoting feed sack garment patterns made by Simplicity. The poster-type ad shows models wearing a feed sack jumper, skirt, and t-shirt. These patterns are dated 1989.
