Searcy AR High School Girls Ensemble Picture

While thumbing through a 1975 SHS yearbook looking for something else, I saw this picture and did a double take.  WOW!  Look at all those dresses that made me remember when most mothers sewed and made clothes for the family......mostly the girls in the family.  So did moms make these dresses?

They are interesting also because of long ago when feed was sacked in lovely type material that was used for sewing outfits for the kids or for Mom. 

I also wondered if this was a one-year outfit for the girls or whether it was used for several years.  You will agree, I'm sure, that the picture is interesting and is filled with lovely girls!

Those dresses are so very 1975, and era of polyester and big flowered wallpaper.

My mother made shirts for her grandkids and I would take pictures of them wearing the shirts and sent them to her. She also made shirts for me growing up.

Dear Paula Anne's mother, Annie, would make many of her dresses including  a formal. Annie worked for J.C. Penny for 25 years and had a whole room filled with bolts of cloth when she passed.. She made her grandkids clothing as well.
