And, on the topic of odd clothing from long ago — the summer before the girls-wearing-pants rebellion, I was visiting Baltimore and bought a paper dress. Yes, indeed, a paper dress. A colorful shift-style dress made of a woven paperish material. Wore it and washed it several times before it disintegrated. Someone told the principal (before the pants incident) that I was wearing a dress made of paper. His reply was that he didn’t care about fabric, only about the length of the dress and that there was no cleavage showing. My dress passed those criteria so was safe from censorship!
