Incredible embroidered shorts from the 1975 book American Denim.
I always think that's Cindy Sherman at the top.

That book is one of my vintage favorites, along with the equally fabulous "Native Funk and Flash".

Gretchen that's awesome! I hope you still have that jacket! Love that heavenly hands. Is that the back of it on page 128?

when i was a kid, my mom bought my dad a soft denim shirt and embroidered some small images of things he liked on it, here and there. there was a sailboat and a row of stars on the sleeve. there was also a toadstool. i drew a rose, and she embroidered a version onto it.

the other day i was in steven alan and tried to convince the clerk it would be cool for them to do a version. and he looked at me like i was bonkers.
