Haha the days before digital cameras - sometimes the dodgy closed eyes pics were all you got! My Mum made that red dress that I wore to my primary school ball in 1989, where we demonstrated what we'd learned at our ballroom dancing lessons. I loved that dress - I think Mum and Dad might still have it somewhere. I know she has the pattern in her sewing box. I do still have the cupcake overalls and matching blouse - they are hanging in my closet!
Ahh the 80s! The pink skirt photo is from 1987, and the other two are from 1985.
This is the outfit I finally settled on to recreate for the When We Were Young series - you can see what I made for my girls over at Sewpony!
