1960's "New Idea": The Inflatable Petticoat!!!

I bought the 1961 Annual supplement to the World Book Encyclopedia at a resale shop a few months ago for 70 cents--you know, just because it was there. When I started thumbing through it, I came across these photos and just had to send them out to all of you.
Enjoy!

Those are so cute! I would totally rock one...I can think of so many fun ways to wear one.

Thanks again for adding the button, it looks fantastic on your page!
