Family Heirloom Project: Flowered Print Dress

Flowered Print Dress

From the Family Heirloom Project. My mom made all her own clothes the entire time I was growing up.  It had been awhile since I had seen her wear this one. I can’t even remember when I saw her in it. But it is typical of the kind of fabric she would buy. She did sew some some elegant things. But curtains and the occasional dress got the gaudy treatment with outlandish prints, usually with lots of blues and greens.
