Easy Does It

Sweater and matching knickerbockers hand-knitted by Molly Dove.

Knitted tops for all occasions. Warm, comfortable sweaters with amusing motifs from The Sweet Shop, and samples from an imaginative collection by a new designer, Molly Dove. Her clothes are obtainable by mail order only; which, as well as keeping the prices down, makes them available to more of you! We also show a pretty little halter-necked top that’s barely there, just in case the sun comes out!

Wonderful to see further mention of John Dove and Molly White’s ‘Aspidistra’ label and to actually see one of the tattoed body stockings which were illustrated in this earlier post on my blog. Also, regular readers will know of my passion for Seventies underwear in general, and Janet Reger underwear in particular, so this stunningly photographed editorial is pretty much win-win as far as I’m concerned. Bubble perm included…

Early mention of the brilliant John Dove and Molly White, whose incredible prints – not least their ‘Wild Thing’ t-shirt – came to define the Seventies. Please do check out their website. Wonder Workshop began in 1972, so Aspidistra must have been very short-lived.
