No full skirt would be complete without crinolines!

At Christmas time, many tiny bells were safety-pinned to our crinolines.  A truly lovely sound!  But the mean old administration limited the bells to something like 10 per lady.   Was this fair?  We didn't think so!   Another  popular fashion was the "straight skirt".   We wore either saddle shows with socks or "flats."  We were not allowed to wear slacks to school except for a couple of special "play days" each year.   There were strange dress-code rules such as no patent leather shoes.  At slumber parties, of course we wore our best baby doll pj's or flannels.
