Same dress - 30 years apart

When I was about six or seven we had a crafty neighbour/friend that would sometimes make us things. One of my favourites was this dress that she made out of an adult size skirt - she just added some lace and a bit of ribbon and i think, for the sleeves she used a bit of an old curtain! I wore it on my last day of Year 1 and I even remember how I felt back then. I really felt so lovely in my blue dress. I know the quality of the photo makes it look like I was born in the 1920s!

When my mother visited from Sweden at Christmas time she brought the dress with her to give to my daughter. Freya loves it but it's still a little long for her. Spot the difference...
