My older sister didn't have a poodle skirt, but she remembers wearing 5 can-cans (petticoats) under a few of her skirts. She chuckled, when she was thinking back on those days. She also wore blouses with Peter Pan collars. She said that they would pin flowers at the top of the buttons in the center, below the collar. She wore white Saddle Oxfords with black and brown saddle strips. Then penny loafers, too.
I missed out on the five petticoats. It was down to one my the time, I was in Junior High. Then the styles change to tight straight skirts and sweaters and big hair. But, I did have a rose, is rose skirt in grade school.
