My mom's chiffon formal from 1956 or 57. It's in absolutely perfect condition. I couldn't believe I got it on since she was such a tiny little thing. The shoes are from her wedding in 1961. I'll post a pic of her wedding gown soon. It is hands down, the most elegant gown I've ever seen. I wore it when I got married the first time. (HA!).....
My first county fair blue ribbon sewing project. I'm not sure if I should be excited that I can fit into a dress I made in middle school or not. I quickly progressed to be quite a talented seamstress. Since I only sew occasionally these days my skills are extremely dull. As I was going through all the clothing I'd made, which was saved, I was really blown away at the complexity of each item. Maybe someday I can retrain myself!
One of the many hats found in the attic and storeroom. With each hat box opened my mother recalled the reason for purchase and the outfits she wore them with.
