Whispering secrets to my sister, Chantele....

She added wide yellow ruffles to the bottoms of our dresses to compensate for our rapid growth...and we were able to wear them for one more year. Initially, the dresses had red ties at the back of the waist. She switched them out to yellow to match the ruffles.
