  • Trivia

    • Starting with this season, Mary has a new dress for Church, and it's a lavender color. Apparently, she has outgrown the blue dress, which is from when Ma made the matching dresses for Mary and Laura in Season 1's Country Girls. It's reasonable to believe that Laura is now wearing Mary's blue dress, since she is taller now and likely outgrew her own. You'd think little Carrie would get the smaller blue dress now, which would serve as some nice symbolism and would be more in line with the fact that children in those days relied heavily on their older siblings' hand-me-downs. Unfortunately, Carrie never wore it.
