I've been working on the May gift, but it's not quite finished, darn. The good news is I've got a great jump on June's gift. I can't say what it is, because it's for one of my followers, but I do have something I can share with you. After you finish here, hop on over to Allie's place to see what Everyone's been working on....some sweet things there.
I pulled these out of the cedar chest last week. I made two sets of cotton dresses and corduroy pinafores for my little girls way back in 1990. They were from a very old pattern my sister, Evelyn, gave me to use, probably dating from 1950s. Evelyn made many dresses for me when I was small. She was 22 years old when I was born and already an accomplished seamstress. I have a picture of her wedding party which shows her in her wedding dress and my other sister, Betty, in her bridesmaid's dress -- both handmade by Evelyn. It's been digitized, but its on my other computer, so I can post it yet. I'll try to get it online next time. Have a great weekend, Everyone.
