If you were a 1950’s kindergartener, you likely had a gingham dress of some kind. You possibly had one that your mother made you (like I did), or you bought one like the ones seen here from Mary Jane Dresses. These red & white gingham classics were featured in the May 1953 issue of Today’s Woman magazine in a fashion feature titled Candy Colors for Carnival Time. The dresses were made in sizes 1 through 6x and retailed for under $5.00.
