Day 247/365: Vintage Done Gold!

Imagine my *Ken Done JOY* when Jill sent in this photo of her children in the 1980s! This vintage shot is truly, madly, deeply, Ken Done GOLD!
Jill writes:

I had a friend who worked at Sheridan sheets factory in the 80's and they were making Ken Done sheets. He gave me some off cuts. I got busy sewing… My children got the benefit especially the youngest as he had to wear through all the hand me downs. It took him years to out grow the outfits. I must say it was very good anti-fade material!


Thank you to the Howard Family for sharing this Ken Done memory... it's now an important part of What Ken Be Done? History!

And here's me smiling from ear to ear, today:
Photios Brothers vintage earrings, glass necklace, Tatty Devine necklace, Ken Done silk shirt donated by Cousin Christine, Yohji Yamamoto overalls (I found these in an op shop in Perth for $3!!!!!!), Sportscraft belt, Fluevogs.
