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.
