From the candles, it looks like it was our 9th birthday--1983. Silly picture!
Mom saved the dresses and passed them on eventually. Our cousin wore one and returned it years later.
Here's Kira wearing it in 2004 at age 6.
Our first day of kindergarten, I believe. Julie on the left, in blue, Stacy on the right, usually in red. Mom made these dresses. The little sidewalk, tree and driveway are no longer there.
I was never very happy with mine hanging in the hallway so after seeing Julie's on a plate stand, I put mine in the living room on one too, by my other "black stuff"-a mirror & two other frames.
