Do-it-yourself dress

Created by designer Betsey Johnson in 1966 and modeled below (for Life magazine) by Lauren Hutton.

"[Johnson's] do-it-yourself dress comes in three parts, a silk slip, a transparent plastic halter neck dress, and a bag of metallic paper cut-outs, all shapes and colors, that stick wherever planted. A girl can work out her own design and even change it every time she puts on her plastic dress."

Handy. All a guy needs is a strong magnet to get things going.

Hmmm... This looks like a flimsy excuse to show a girl in a transparent dress!

I remember that issue. Back in the day, Life Magazine was the “hottest” publication a boy could get his sweaty little hands on.
