Three generations, one dress

When my mum was in grade 12 she made a dress for her potential future daughter. This was the 1960's, naturally, the dress was A-line and short.

She kept that dress stored away until she had me, over ten years later.

Here is a picture of me wearing the dress, along with my mum and my older brother

After I grew out of it, my mum packed away the dress in a suitcase for future daughters and the next generation.

No other daughters came and Puddle was the next eligible suitor. When Puddle grew big enough, the dress became hers.

Here is a picture of my mum and I recreating the original (above) photo. Sorry Jeff, mum took your place...

Oh, she is so cute and pretty. So lovely and wears a beautiful fashionable pink dress . Here is to inform that I have seen many fashionable kids wears like this on boutiqueken. She is looking so cute and wonderful in this look and outfit. The butterfly on her head is so wonderful.
