This dress is/was my Great Aunt Leta's (second) wedding dress in 1950. I wore to a family dinner last Saturday night to honor her.
It has a full circle skirt. The dress is made out of a silk taffeta with a quilted waist and horsehair at the hem to make it stand out.
With my cousin Ryan
And my cousin Grace
This is Leta with her new husband Joe, 1950. She was born on 22 December 1915 and died several years ago at almost 93. (There is a picture of us together, taken in 2001 at a family reunion, but I cannot find those pictures.)
So, even though you are gone, I'll be thinking of you tomorrow on what would have been your 95th birthday!
