It wasn't easy being a little girl in 1961.
Pants and shorts were OK for outdoor play, but otherwise? We always had to wear a dress. We wore dresses to school, to parties, and for shopping.
Sometimes we had to wear stupid pinafores over our dresses. And then there were the scratchy crinoline slips that made us fidget.
And don't forget the Mary Jane shoes with anklet socks that always fell down and had to be pulled up over and over. Or, even worse, the tights that wouldn't stay up.
No, it wasn't easy being a little girl in 1961.
