This is my "Nanette" dress that I have on my side bar. It was made by Freda with huck weaving. The dress was red toweling of some sort. I think this was 1960. Again with the ringlets. This time with hand-me-down gloves and my shiny white shoes and socks. Darn I wish I still had that dress! I wish I even just remembered wearing it.
Now Easter 1964. Get a load of that pink car. Wish I had that too. I absolutely loved this dress. It was my favorite-best-ever-most-loved dress. And I've got the little purse (that held Kleenex and maybe some Easter candy) and the hat. The dress had a pinafore top. I even remember watching mom, Freda, making it.
Here is another picture from that Easter in '63. Again mom is in the very back. My sister Polly is in front of her with our friend Suzanne (can you believe that netted hat!). Then in front of Polly is my sister Michelle and then my sister Teri. Of course mom made all the outfits.
I know this dress is why I love cabbage rose fabric, and it is in aqua no less. And the dress has a story after Easter. In May 1963, Mrs. Miller's first grade class at Fifth and Spring elementary school had a play - Goldilocks and the Three Bears. And guess who was Goldilocks??? Yep. The thing I remember most was that Glenn Zerby was one of the bears and he kissed my cheek at the end of the play. I was infatuated and I was wearing my favorite dress.
The last shot from '63. With my dad in the picture this time. Of course, I'm always the show-off. Those certainly WERE the good old days!
