Easter Dresses












I've joined Eileen in blogging of Easter dresses past. Because all little girls look cute in their Easter dresses! That's me below, with the red hair, at age 2, when we lived in Michigan.


The picture below was taken in 1968. We were living outside London and my maternal grandmother had come to visit. Left to right: my mom, younger sister Sara (age 6), Grandma, me (age 10); photo taken by my dad.


And this is a photo of my grandmother (same woman as above), Ruth Briggs Beyer, at age 4 or 5, along with her younger sister, Ila. This was taken when they lived in Wolverine, Michigan, probably in 1908 or 1909 (by 1910 they had another sister).

Happy Easter!

Oh my! You looked much older and more sophisticated at age two than me! :-) Terrific little dress and bolero. Wonderful photos! I really liked that one of Grandma and Great Aunt. You are lucky to have them. Thanks so much for sharing your photos with us.

Now they knew how to do Easter Bonnets in your grandmother's time! Wow. The hats were big big then and made such a fashion statment. All the pics are lovely. How fun to see the generations dressed in finery! thanks for sharing.

Look at that red hair..how sweet and love the flower on the dress. What a great pic of your Grandma. Those bonnets weighed as much as the little one..wonder what the colors were.

I'm glad I didn't have to wash and iron dresses like your grandmother's! But you all look very pretty in your fine dresses.
