Let's have a look at the mini as it marched through the sixties and seventies.  In the States it caught on a bit later than the UK with skirts still being about knee length in 1967.  The mini finally hit US/Canada catalogs in '68.  A couple years into the seventies and the hemline had gotten about as high as it was going to get.  Catalogs of 1975 through the mid-1980's featured nary a mini to be found.  Longer dresses and slacks were the mini's pitiful replacements (hot pants didn't appear much in mainstream catalogs).

So, let's have a look at a few catalog pages from each year starting with 1968 and ending with its last year of popularity, 1974.  Enjoy.
