Always wore dresses like this to school, girls were not allowed to wear pants, except in the winter and you had to wear them under your dress and remove them when you got to school! Sears, Roebuck and Co. Catalog and J C Penny's too!
1968--school assembly- girls wore skirts. No slacks or jeans. Clean and combed hair. In most schools, the girl on the far left front seat would probably be sent home to change - her skirt was too short. Teachers checked by having you kneel. Your hem had to brush the floor. By the late 60s though, many schools had given up trying to ban the miniskirt. You did have to wear stockings or tights, though - NO bare legs!
