when she was only about six years old!
I found this picture of her in a Simplicity Home Catalog from 1971.
She's wearing a cute dress and apron made from this pattern, Simplicity number 9790:
She could gather up eggs or perhaps some wildflowers in the little apron.
The other little girl in the photo is wearing Simplicity number 9896, seen below.
This dress is pretty cute, too - I especially like the version in yellow with red rickrack and cherries on the pockets!
Gingham seems like such a nice choice for springtime.
