Rockin' that 70s Polyester Double-Knit Look!

Alternate Titles for this Post:
Can You Dig It?
I Did NOT Buy This...It was Free!
Ugliest Pattern Ever!

My friend Ashley over at Frances Suzanne told me about the Ugly Vintage Pattern Contest at Simple Simon.  Since I am a collector hoarder of vintage patterns, I was intrigued. I took a look at their post and immediately thought of this pattern:
I really don't know why I kept it. It was part of a "lot" on ebay. I bought some cute vintage boy's patterns and the seller threw this one in for free. I wonder why??
So many things come to mind. Did you notice it is designed for knit fabrics only? Do you love the plaids and stripes? Size 16!! Would you wear this to go disco dancing? To the beach? To school? 
To quote the 70s, this pattern is:
far out, keen, fab, groovy, dy-no-mite, funky, and just gnarly!

I remember some pants like those! Far out and heavy, man!

There are so many funny things about this pattern I don't know where to start! I think my favorite part is the dude on the top who is taking a photo---it totally looks like he's taking a picture of the guys down in the bottom corner. Maybe he justs wants to make himself a pair of those snazzy pants!

That is AWESOME!
The best part is the size.

Hilarious! I think my favorite part has to be the seventies-esque description - gnarly?!?! dy-no-mite?! I saw where you made the top 5, and rightly so!
