Foto Friday-Dorothy Heckman

Here is a picture that is labeled! Oh happy day!!

Meet Dorothy Heckman. I love the long blessing dresses from long ago. I wonder if her mother is behind her holding her up?

I wish that I knew more about Dorothy and what eventually became of her. I shared what little I do know in this post.

  1. I thought my girls' gowns were long but this one wins by far! Do we know why christening gowns were so long?

    1. I have no idea why? A few quick minutes digging didn't tell me either.

  2. That gown is gorgeous. Such a lot of lace and handwork! Little Dorothy herself is gorgeous, too. She seems to have a curious and interested countenance for one so young.

    1. She does look really aware doesn't she? I love her petite little features.
