Girl Wears Grandmother's Prom Dress as Surprise

This California teen, Cassie, was given a dress when she was a little girl for "dress up" -- but her family decided to keep it safe for something a little more special. It was her grandma Dottie's prom dress from 1957. The uploader, Cassie's aunt, explained, "Dottie gave it to her daughter Debbie, when Cassie was a little girl for a play dress up item. Debbie put it in the closet, as she and Cassie are very much into vintage clothing."

She saved the dress for a special moment: her high school graduation.he dress belonged to Dottie, she wore it in May of 1957 to her junior prom. Her aunt notes, "When it came time for graduation, Cassie decided she already had her dress picked out and we were told about it, but it was kept a secret from Grandma Dottie. While visiting for the graduation ceremony, Dottie kept asking to see her dress and she was told it wasn't at the house but at one of Cassie's friends houses."

When the teen came out to show Grandma Dottie, there were plenty of happy tears. It's safe to say this surprise will be one that Dottie will never forget!
