Caryl Gaubatz The Dollar a Year Dress
2009
This dress was made to commemorate our 35th wedding anniversary. It shows all the places my husband and I have lived.
When we married in 1974, I had one week between duty stations to shop for a dress and plan the wedding.
I found this one on a sales rack in Norfolk,VA.
It fit and it was $35.00. My price.
The 35 silk hearts were appliqued later, one for each year. The letters that Gary and I exchanged when I was stationed in Saudia Arabia and Iraq during Operation Desert Storm are printed on the skirt.
