Son-in-law said he liked it, so I made this School Photo Dress from Oliver + S for Caitlin. It's size 2. It didn't use much fabric. So I still have meters and meters of the fabric left!

I'm sure I had dresses in a similar style to this when I was in High School back in the late 60's. I found this pattern on Google images. It looks like what I used to wear in High School and must have been the inspiration for the School Photo Dress.

While I was making the dress, which by the way was easy as pie, I was thinking about Jackie Kennedy dresses and buttons that adorned her outfits back in the 60's. So I dug out these vintage buttons from my stash. These buttons were on a housecoat I had in the early 60's.
I'm thinking all this outfit needs is a Pill Box hat and white gloves. Oh, and a sensible purse too!
