Well, not really your first, but what's the first one you remember?  Mine  
was lavender organdy with picot edges on all the ruffles.  Itched and  
scratched like the Dickens but I felt SO pretty in it, it didn't matter.

I'm sure it was something my mother made as she made all my dresses when I  
was a child.  Probably something in yellow that would have a long sashes to
 be tied in a beautiful bow in the back and of course it would have a FULL  
skirt for those can-can petticoats which she would also make.  Many times s
he would also make a coordinating coat.

Yellow lawn, with embroidered white ribbons at the waist.  Made
me look extremely jaundiced.  At least my grandmother got the
yellow dress out of her system early on... ;-)

LOL.

My memory does not go back far enough.  My mother made all of my and  
my twin sister's clothes up to the time I started making my own.  
The "first Easter" dress I have a  very specific memory of was in  
'48.  Our home had burned, we were without ANY of its contents, and  
I got my *first* store-bought (Sears) dress ever: Frilly aqua  
organdy with an underskirt which was HOOPED.  Woo Hoo!

My Grandmother made all my and my sister's dresses until we got up in high  
school.  Then I was making my own clothes.   We always looked so cute in the  
pictures I still have!
