I am Hema(a.k.a Malini). I was born and brought-up in India. And I didn't exists in the 60s, but that doesn't mean I wasn't exposed 60s fashion and social media. Here are some fun facts:
- My parents got married in the late 60s
- I found these pics of famous Bollywood actress to show the fashion back in India.
|The sexy Saira Banu|
|The classic Sharmila Tagore|
|The beautiful and adorable Sadhana|
We also had the twist dance in India in 60s with a touch of Indian dance ;). Check this out:
Wow, I didn't think I knew a lot about the 60s, but I actually do. At least through our Indian cinema.
Now for my project I used Robert Kaufman's batiks in blue.
Peggy Martin's paper pieced Pin Wheel block. For the background I used Robert Kaufman's Yarn Dyed Essex Linen in black.
For my inspiration, I did a little research on the 60s fashion here. It had lot of stripes and color blocks, so the pattern I choose perfectly worked for the theme. I had to add the twist with the pin wheels.
