Janet Gilbert, sent me this fantastic photo of her mother in 1936! The photo reminded her of one of my outfits on a previous blog. She said that the dress was red with white collar trim. We can not tell for sure, but there is either Feather Stitching between the collar pieces or they are joined with Faggoting. The dress has a small placket in front fastened with tiny buttons. Janet and I speculated whether the dress was on backwards, but after a little research I found a similar style from around that same time period. I felt sure that Janet's grandmother would not have dressed her daughter incorrectly for something as important as a photograph! If daddy had dressed her.......well anything is possible.
Thank you for sharing Janet!
