How much did you have to pay for cap and gown at your childs school?

Recommended Posts

We didn't wear cap and gowns. We wore white formals and the guys wore white dinner jackets and tux pants. The local tux shop supplies everything for the guys. I'm sure they get off much cheaper.


I couldn't find a dress I liked, so my mother made it from a simpler Vogue wedding dress pattern. Because we bought it as material, notions and pattern, I don't know what it cost, but it certainly was not cheaper than anything off the rack. Back then, it was easily $150 - $200 for the dress, plus shoes, hair and nails. So $75 is cheap!


Oh and this was for public school.
