Fashion Friday


Our model this morning is Sherry when she was probably 10 or 11 years old. I had made her a dress similar to the ones that I made for myself for square dancing. I pulled miles and miles of gathers and stitched on so much rickrack and trim back then. Sherry's dress is a light blue trimmed in white, pink and silver. She has a metal link belt around her waist. Pretty white shoes and socks complete her outfit. Little girls just absolutely love full, full skirts and she certainly looks cute in hers. (Click to enlarge)

I think I can remember wearing a dress like this when I was a little girl. What a charming photo!

Love the dress!! I bet the "twirl" factor on that dress is wonderful! Cute picture and cute kiddo!

I LOVED that dress. I think the remains of it are still tucked away in the box with the dressup clothes that the 3 granddaughters all wore. Many hours of labor in that one!
