Mystery Hop Stop

Welcome hoppers! Today is my day of the
and i just wanted to take a minute to thank Kimberly Jolly and the crew at Fat Quarter Shop for all the work they do not only to keep customers happy, but also in helping us designers connect with you in new and fun ways...like this!

By now you've probably gotten the hang of how this works, so after lots of rummaging around in my closet — which i admit sent me speeding off to Target® for some closet organizer bins—here is my "Vintage Modern" item:
In case you are new to the blog hop, what you'll need to do is look long and hard at that image above and try to guess what it is. You have only 24 hours to leave one guess in the comment area of this post. Whoever guesses correctly will then be entered to win this lovely little Good Fortune layer cake compliments of Fat Quarter Shop (thank you thank you!):

To help you out a teenie bit, here is a clue...
This item is older than i am.
It was bought here:

This won the Grammy for song of the year,
and this won the Oscar for best picture:

This item will never wrinkle because of what it's made out of, and you'll never need a belt to hold it/them up. Now it's up to you...put your thinking cap on and let the guessing begin!

If you'd like to sign up for the Block of the Month Club featuring Bonnie and Camille's beautiful Vintage Modern fabric collection, you can do so here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. The mystery continues tomorrow over at Sandy's blog so be sure to visit her too. Good luck everyone!

  3. Wow, this one's tough too. I was going to say a scarf but then your comment about not needing a belt makes me think pants of some sort (maybe lounging pants....of course, if they date back to the 60's I guess they could just be "wearing" pants ;>) And yes, probably polyester ;>)

  19. Shall I guess - flared bell bottom pants with an elastic waist made out of some mad made fabric - like nylon or polyester.

    ReplyDelete
  20. First glance I thought a Hawaiian shirt although the print is different from those I know. Your hint makes it sound like it might be pants of some sort--must have an elastic waist if so.

    I suppose you will share the story about where and when and who first bought this item?

    I am sewing with Good Fortune now so could put this layer cake to goog use.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. I believe it is what used to be called a house dress.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My first thought was a muumuu...it's so hawaiian-ish and colorful. But then the no belt suggestion threw me off. Let's see...I think I'll say polyester bell-bottoms. I would LOVE to win some Good Fortune!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am thinking a polyester bell bottom jumpsuit!

    ReplyDelete

  34. Guessing a polyester mini skirt, but this one is really tough!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm thinking polyester elastic waist pants.

    ReplyDelete
  36. GET OUT! You did not have a pair of pants looking like these! However this would have been high end back then because it looks like fine polyester and the regular stuff was so thick. You were rockin it in the polyester pants!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  53. Polyester bell bottoms. This is a tough one...

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think it must be some sort of polyester dress.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I will go with a jumpsuit probably polyester (it was the era!), but maybe a silk or silk-blend. That was a high-end label.

    Tough challenge, but the prize is certainly worthy! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm guessing silk or polyester pants--maybe pajama pants.

    ReplyDelete
  64. It is so groovy...a mod polyester jumpsuit.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Well I'm not a child of the 60's myself so I was going to call it a "jumper," but a quick Google search tells me it's called a "jumpsuit" or "pantdress." Groovy, man.

    (Look! You can make your own!)

  66. A polyester sundress. It looks like there are straps in the picture....

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm guessing a beautiful purple print caftain. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I stink at this game. If it doesn't need a belt, I'm assuming some sort of elasticated waist, harem pants in a polyester blend.

    ReplyDelete
  69. My guess is a polyester jumpsuit. Love the bright colors.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I am guessing it is a polyester jumpsuit!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would also guess a polyester mini skirt with suspenders..apparently back in style too...

    ReplyDelete
  72. i'm guessing a jumpsuit.....because i have one hanging in my closet. although it's not quite as bright!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'll go with bell bottom pants. Had fun doing some looking on the internet. :) I think we need a resurgence of some of the better fashions from those days!

    ReplyDelete
  74. My guess is silk or polyester pajama pants or leisure pants that have an elastic waist

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think is a polyester jumpsuit.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Jumpsuit? I'm going to guess polyester due to wrinkling.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Definitely polyester! I think that it's a pair of vintage overalls! Fun! Thanks for the giveaway! I can't wait to get my Mystery BOMSs starting in June!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'm going to say polyester (no wrinkles), elastic-waist (no belt) skirt. Thanks for this chance!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Is it an overall dress? You have had that a long time!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I'm thinking jumpsuit with bell bottoms. It's kinda sad that what is vintage to you is what I wore growing up. The last comment made me laugh. I don't remember any decent clothing in the 60's! We were all flower children, grubbier than heck, competing for the shortest, loudest, wildiest outfits we could find. As long as they don't bring back polyester leisure suits and men's polyesters shirts!

    ReplyDelete
  81. A sarong to wear on holiday maybe? Made from a poly fibre so it won't crush in your case?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Ok polyester skirt with elastic or overalls. Almost loooks like a print that would be fun in a quilt

    ReplyDelete
  83. A summer dress that falls to the foor. I had one with poppies on black that was smocked in elastic across the top...how I loved that dress. My body couldn't handle the size of those poppies today! You could see me for miles!! Loved those days

    ReplyDelete
  84. Gotta be polyester pants--sansibelt, no less!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'm kind of thinking it's a swimsuit. Man, I hope I'm right because I really, really want some Good Fortune!=) Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Well, given that it is older than you...it is either polyester or rayon, and since it is from Henri Bendel, it is a hobo style bag, or a halter top. I pick halter top!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I think maybe it's a bathing suit-for a nice vacation in a beacht type of place

    ReplyDelete
  88. I would have to guess a polyester jumpsuit.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I am going with in-style and wild Bermuda shorts - I am old enough to remember them. Judy C

    ReplyDelete
  90. It's definitely polyester and I'm guessing it's a hawaiian shirt, given the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  91. From Bendel's? Could be anything! I'm going with a jumpsuit, polyester of course :-)

    ReplyDelete
  92. It's older than me too...but my first thought was a bell-bottom jumpsuit.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hi I think it is one of those "jumpsuit" sort of contraptions. I actually made one for myself back in that day!! one piece bellbottom fitted sort of thing...but oh how we thought we looked good in it!!.....:)

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'll wager culottes with suspenders.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Whatever it is, I'd like the fabric in 100% cotton. I'm sure it is polyester, probably knit and some kind of full pants. You would think I could remember, I was a young bride and mother in those years!
    quiltschon@att.net

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm going to guess sundress because it looks like there are straps and it's just too distressing to think it might be pants and suspenders :-)

    ReplyDelete
  97. Gorgeous polyester jump suit or at least bell bottoms!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I think it is a swimsuit of some kind.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hi Kate,
    I'm guessing a polyester jumpsuit with wide bell-bottom pantlegs, and perhaps a halter-top? (or a turtleneck top with the scooped-out armholes)-very Charlie's Angels! That would be SASSY! Henri Bendel...has to be stylin' is all I say. Really like the print, though--inspiration for another collection! (it really is Vintage Modern!)

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm guessing legging sort of pants...the stretchy kind, you know, that stick to your legs like white on rice. :D Love the print

    ReplyDelete
  101. I also think it's a polyester jumpsuit or at least pants of some kind. I, too, lived through those mod days and had a few of those prints.

    ReplyDelete
  102. a shirt?

    marksey3@msn.com

    ReplyDelete
  103. It looks like there are straps or a belt, hummm.....this is a tough one! I would have to guess either a swim suit or jumpsuit??? Love the colors and print....the polyester, not so much!

    ReplyDelete
  104. My guess is bell bottom pants in polyester double knit of course. Back then the louder the better!! ~Jody R.

    ReplyDelete
  105. That would be one totally groovy jumpsuit :)

    ReplyDelete
  106. i think it is one of those "one size fits all !" moo moo style dresses usually made of perfect lightweight polyester

    ReplyDelete
  112. I think it is a polyester mumu.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I'd say it's either polyester bell-bottoms or a jumpsuit. Nice asian print.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I wish I could get this right, but to me it looks like it might be a bathing suit.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Polyester bell bottoms. Groovy!

    ReplyDelete
  116. A polyester sundress? The colors are amazing and will never fade LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I think it's a polyester mini-skirt with a bib and ties that crossed in the back. I had one in a similar print and I loved it. Wow, that brings back memories!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Polyester mumu (one of those house dress thingies). Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Oh my, this is hard! I would say hip huggers, either pants or shorts, because of the "no belt" comment you made....but then it almost looks like you can see a tie in the picture. So some short of pant or shorts made of polyester or knit.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Oh my goodness! This is tough! I love the fabric on your item, but this is hard to guess! It must be made of polyester because it doesn't wrinkle. Hmmm...a polyester skirt, perhaps a wrap around skirt? Thank you for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Is this some sort of Mama Cass-esque moo moo?

    ReplyDelete
  126. I'm going to go with pants...psychadelic pants! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  127. My guess is a blouse. It definitely wouldn't need a belt!

    ReplyDelete
  128. From that store it has to be a scarf!!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I am going with a dress of some sort.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I think some type of dress given the era. I was in college and I'm trying hard, really hard, to think of what we wore.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'm guessing it is some type of jumpsuit, eith long pants or shorts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  132. in the 60's I used to wear a dress made of polyester. In my area of the US, Virginia, we called a Shift...no belt needed.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I am going to guess pedal pushers. Although I thought it was a blouse but when you said you don't need a belt to hold it up that made me go huh?

    ReplyDelete
  134. Looks like a 60's era swimsuit. beautiful color!

    ReplyDelete
  135. A line dress or a shift is my guess.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  138. Leggings or capris of some sort! They're cute!

    ReplyDelete
  140. I think it is a polyester halter top

    ReplyDelete
  141. My guess is a polyester skirt. The fabric has to be polyester from the look of it and from your description "this item will never wrinkle" And I'd guess it has an elastic waist. But wow, those colors are so IN right now!!!

    Tracy

    ReplyDelete
  142. I think I'm way off, but I'm going to go with rainboots. Namely because I would love a pair with that pattern and it seems to fit the criteria you've specified. Fun game!

    ReplyDelete
  143. It looks like a Hawaiian shirt tome, if it is pants I would burn them immediately! Lol!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  148. elastic waist polyester skirt is my guess. janita

    ReplyDelete
  149. Oh my, so many thoughts; Palazzo pants and a Mumu were my first thoughts but with some more thinking and closer look at the store where it was purchased, I'll guess a gorgeous scarf from Henri Bendel. Thanks for the great hints!

    ReplyDelete
  150. i'm guessing polyester maxi skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I'm guessing it's a polyester (did anyone even use cotton back in the 60's?) jumpsuit. I see what look like they could be straps in the pic. I LOVE the print..wow...just add some love bead necklaces and you'd be all set to hit the town.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Hostess pajamas made of rayon/cotton blend.

    ReplyDelete
