The Dress

Wednesday, June 27, 2012










This is a 67 year old dress that my Mom's Grandma knitted for her when she was born. We have pictures of my Mom in it (not sure where that picture is , we are still looking for it.) Then we have me in it. ( The top picture here). The next picture is of Jennifer in it when she was about 10 months old. The last picture is of Molly wearing this same dress that is 67 years old!

  emoticon I just recently tossed a sweater, booties, hat that was mine crocheted by my mother 53 years ago for some reason it had been taken out of my plastic container and put in a box, and I didn't know about it till we cleaned under the stairs, and it got so musty smelling I could not was it out. Oh well, I do have a huge round pineapple table cloth that she made for me when she was 84, she is 94 now and no longer crochets.

    I still have a dress that my mom made for me when I was 3. I had a lot of favorite dresses growing up and most of them I had to "hand down" to sisters or cousins or various neighbors' and friends' children. I hid this dress though like a little hoarder. I am 28 and the dress still sits folded in my dresser. A few years ago I finally pulled it out to show my mother. She seemed surprised that I still had it. She jokingly told me that I should give it to my niece Kiri but the look on my face made her laugh. I'll never forget the sweet soft way she patted my arm and said "No, I think you should save it for your own daughter someday" emoticon I hadn't even thought about it but as soon as she said that-- it sounded like the most perfect thing. I loved your 67 year old dress! I'd like to think that my little dress can be passed on through the years

    I was admiring that dress it must be made with 2 ply cotton it's so fine. And the skirt looks to me as though it's crocheted. Absolutely beautiful heirloom.

    I was born in 49 and have a picture in a crochet dress that had a satin slip under it, which some lady made for me when I was a baby, so those dresses were very popular. Mine burned up when we lost our house in a fire in 1955 when I was in first grade.. Lucky you still have the dress.
