I was really excited when Kate responded to my search for women who wanted to be photographed in their mothers’ dresses. She literally said, “I’m wearing that dress right now!” Here is what Kate told me about the dress.
“The dress was my Mom’s. she sewed it for herself back in the 70s and as she recalls, the fabric cost her about $1.50. She made it for one of my sisters first communions, so I bet there is a picture of her in it somewhere! My sisters and I have passed it between each other as adults. We love it!”
And Kate also found some photos of her mom wearing the dress!
