Fashion Show Post One

What the well dressed mother and baby were wearing in 1928. Sitting on the "coping" of the frontyard of a pair of doting grandparents in Peoria, Illinois, were Nan and Carol. Nan is wearing a lovely banded cloche (I think that is what you call that hat) and pointed shoes with a strap. Her dress appears to be a silk or maybe rayon since it has a nice sheen. Carol, born when Nan was 34 and the first of three babies, is dressed in a frilly bonnet and dress with cute little booties. She also appears to be a very healthy, chubby little thing.

You were a cute baby. Baby clothes have certainly become simplier and easier to care for. I love Nan's outfit. Her outfit is so stylish down to the pointed shoes.

Oh, in answer to your question. Turnovers are triangles. Big triangles!
