My Grandmother's Dress

I unfortunately never got to truly know my grandmother. She passed away when I was too small to remember much. When I look at old photos and see how stylish and regal she was, I wish she was still around as I am sure we would have been kindred spirits. The only thing I have from my grandmother is a dress that her mother made for her honeymoon in 1936. Somehow this dress has lasted and when my mother gave it to me I was shocked at how well it was tailored and the fact that it fit me like a glove. My hope is that one day I will have somewhere to wear this dress and know that my grandmother is looking down on me with a smile.


  1. Seriously Amazing Dress! You won't find anything that well made or elegant available today. Reminds me of days gone by and should have been featured on "Titanic"

  2. Wow, that's incredible!
    What a beautiful piece to remember your grandmother by. It's art!
