Fashion and Paisley Print

on June 4, 2018

From being a highly prized pattern in Victorian times, paisley enjoyed a resurgence during the 1960s when clothes in this print became a popular fashion item for men and women.

Certain garments continue to carry the paisley pattern today.

Although shawls are not as popular as they once were, still the paisley pattern is used.

And the not quite paisley patterned shawl.

    I liked all of your Paisley Posts, Gail. They were very informative and the color photos were quite pretty. Maybe you’ll be doing the same with the cover of your next book!!

      My novel is called The String Games so I’m thinking about stories and string figures that I can write about when the book gets published. Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

    I really like paisley prints, so much so I once, many years ago, had a pale Paisley carpet in my lounge.
