PostNEW Betsey Johnson 1972

Butterick Patterns launched their Young Designers series in 1963 to appeal to the Baby Boomer generation. The successful series lasted almost two decades and included designers such as Mary Quant, Jean Muir, Mia Fonssagrives (daughter of model Lisa), Prue Acton, Willi Smith and Kenzo.

Betsey Johnson was a designer for Alley Cat in 1971 when she began creating patterns for Butterick. Her designs were prominently featured in the January 1972 Seventeen magazine as a 4-page ad and an 8-page editorial layout. I created a Butterick Patterns Album in the Some Top 60s Designers: Betsey Johnson Album:
