You know how there are certain things that stand out from your childhood? Well, for me, that stand out piece is this dress. It was my mother’s and she wore it all the time. When I picture my mom from the 90’s, I always see her in this dress. That is why I was horrified when she told me that she was throwing it out, last year. I snatched it from the clutches of the “donations” bag, and took it down to my lair (aka, my basement sewing room) and reconstructed it from an out-dated, almost floor-length, baggy dress, to an adorable knee-length summer dress! I can only hope that it survives long enough for my possible future daughter to wear!
