I love this snapshot of my sis, Shirley and me, in our matching dresses and hair bows. It is dated 1943 - I think we had the "original" mini-skirts !! I do remember that our hemlines were usually just barely below our panties ! When Mom would stand us on a chair to mark the hems for finishing was always exciting because I knew I was going to have a new dress to wear within the next couple of days. Our cotton dresses were always starched and ironed to be crisp and sharp looking. I didn't like the feel of them when first donned. Maybe that is why we both look so grumpy in this photo !!!
