Marlene, me, Marie, Leona
This was the last year I wore an Easter hat.
I loved hats and still do, but it wasn't the fashion anymore for an older teen to wear a hat.
I loved my dress, though; it was a polyester fabric, with a satin lining.
It was very comfortable. Leona had a matching pink one.
We didn't get a new dress each year, though. Sometimes we wore our Christmas dresses for Easter.
My Mom usually bought them at Simpson Sears bargain centre in Burnaby for under $10 each!
I know I already posted this photo, but I thought I'd line up the 1970 photos so you can see how we all changed over the years.

I loved my dress. Someone at my Dad's work had a daughter older than I; her name was Karen. She passed on boxes of lovely stuff to us. I had to wait a few years until I grew into this dress, and although slightly out of style for the 70's I didn't care; it was a gorgeous soft cotton/rayon dress with a crispy lining, and machine embroidery all over the bodice. I've always loved fabric and clothes!
