1975 Custom Six Million Dollar Man Clothing

Posted to Flickr on 04 January 2009. Part of the JD's House of Miscellany series.

At age four The Six Million Dollar Man was my favorite TV show, and I had the Steve Austin action figures to prove it. To indulge her little boy, my mother used her sewing and knitting skills to fashion custom outfits for him. She was even careful to include a hole in the back of the shirts to accommodate the big red button that protruded from his back.

My favorite items are the little green booties. Mom made matching ones for me to wear.

This is one of many curious items collected in JD’s House of Miscellany.
