Wow I just sat down at the computer and thought I'd check to see if there were any granny dresses for sale, and there were THREE, yeay! The first two are pretty great but the third one is a little, yeee, what was she thinking? These are not the greatest pictures by any stretch of the imagination.











Okay, now I'm going to see if there are any of my Mom's dresses floating around.

Oooh look, it's my lucky day. Here's one of Mom's. I'm starting to get to know them. Funny, they stopped manufacturing when I was about seven or eight years old so I don't remember much about their businesses. I remember going to their factories and seeing all of the women sewing. I remember my Mother and her patternmaker drawing up ideas for dresses in our living room. But I don't remember the dresses because I guess I never saw them. Now I kind of have a feel for them. On this blue one I recognize that little self banding around the waist and the trim around the sleeves and at the collar.
