Wernt little girls always dressed adorably in the 1950's (at least for photographic sessions anyhow !!!) ? Here is a charming little family photo that I simply had to share....this is my Aunty Rhonda, and isnt she - and the little blue dress - simply exquisit ! I remember playing dress up's in that little dress as a girl myself ! That little blue dress, and a couple of others very similar, still exist and have been very well cared for by my Aunties and my Mother.....I will post more photographs of them in the coming weeks. Below is another wonderful photograph, this time of my pretty mother in another darling 1950's 'sunday best' dress. The picture is in black and white, but the dress was my favorite shade of green with cream lace.
My Grandmother Jean was a beautiful seamstress, and made most of her families clothes on an old treadle singer sewing machine....these two precious little outfits are just a sample of her work. More to come in the next few weeks - stay tuned !
