Prom dress worn by three generations

Lexie Selting, daughter of Dixie (LaBree) Selting and Jamie Selting, wore a 57 year old dress to Fairview's prom on April 22. Her grandmother, Anna (Heggen) LaBree, wore the same dress to her freshman prom at Carter County High School in 1960.

In 1987 her mother wore the dress to her senior prom at CCHS. In that year, LaBree altered the dress for her daughter. She added a lot of ruffles since Dixie had shown her a picture of a prom dress she liked from a magazine.

"That looks just like my freshman prom dress, all we need to do is add some ruffles," LaBree stated.
