Petti Pictures-First Communion Nostalgia

Many enlargeable


Contributor - "Wish this vidclip was of better quality.
The thing that really struck me is how MANY kids attend this one church in 1958 who were of First Communion age!"


(below right) A good example of a poufy 50s First Communion dress -- the best part is the
fact that her petticoat (slip) underneath shows through so well.  Always of interest!

(left) 1965 -- less and less pouf then, but this one 'stands out!' <ptp>

We love images of  dresses being worn by
what could be imagined as a boy in a dress

A happy First Holy Communion girl in The Era

How we were so very jealous of them in their pretty white dresses! There were times when we witnessed little girls running around the house in their slips before going to church, so as to not ruin their dresses... <sigh>

First Holy Communion

Modern interpretations

 

 

 

 

Very rarely do we see a pretty
 First Communion dress with the
 young lady's crinoline slip showing --
here is a treat!
