Who should sit on the little old school desk? A doll in her first day of school dress!
Remember how we all dressed up for the first day of school? Mom had 9 of us girls and she made all of our dresses. I wish now that I had a picture of every one of them. We would look in the Sears and Roebuck Catalog, find the dress we wanted, and she would cut it out, WITHOUT a pattern.
So, when all the girls are grown and gone, who is left to sew for? Little dolls, teddy bears, and anything else that needed clothes - never with a pattern.
What a beautiful talent she had.
