|Me and my Easter treasures, probably 1973. I'm fussy, so I can only imagine the cute neckline bothered me.|
|"Elegant LONG Dresses" offered in the Sears catalog. I think this is from the same time period as the picture of me above. From Historic Catalogs of Sears, Roebuck and Co., 1896-1993, Spring 1973, catalog 246A, image 297 (of 1464), available on Ancestry.|
From what I've been told many of my childhood special occasion clothes clothes came from my grandmother, Margaret Fister, a wealthy woman who bought clothes at I Magnum, Bullocks, Saks Fifth Avenue, and even in France if she was traveling there.
I am unsure if this dress was from her, if my mother made it, or if it was purchased elsewhere. I doubt it was purchased at Sears. Still, the Sears catalog is one way to try to pin down years with clothes.
