Fashion Date:Circa 1920-1925.
Hairstyle Description: Her hair is parted on the side then braided into two pigtails. Two large bows are at the end of her pigtails. She does have thin hair judging by the narrow pigtails.
Costume Description: Her totally white costume and her age makes me think this is a religous confirmation photo. The drop waist and simple lines of the dress are very fashionable in this era. The bodice has a V-neck and a satin tie. The length of the dress makes me sway toward the mid 1920s.
