circa 1913

An article in a Vassar publication from the 1970s lists this dress as a 1913 Daisy Chain dress, and though this assertion is unconfirmed, it is certainly plausible. Daisy Chain dresses have always been white, and have often been paired with a complimentary colored sash. This dress comes from a time when Daisy Chain dresses were not identical, so while each girl had to dress in matching colors (white with a consistent accent color, pink in this case) it was possible to express a degree of personal identity while still wearing the proper Daisy Chain uniform.
