My entire life growing up, my mom sewed clothes for me and my sister. She was amazingly talented, and I had one of a kind outfits, one of a kind prom dresses, one of a kind pajamas.
The problem with being one-of-a-kind is when you're in middle school, you kind of want to look like everyone else. I'm sure I hurt her feelings more than once before I was smart enough to realize how lucky I was to have such a talented personal tailor, but she never let on.
I don't have any photos of her at her sewing machine from those days - but this past summer I caught her at work mending. That's about all she uses her machine for now-days.

I recycled the crochet flower and yellow roses vine from my first version of Follow Your Dreams. I did a Do-Over of that project and these florals were left over so I put them to use on this layout. The dress form is by Dusty Attic, colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang Silhouette Silver Moonshadow Mist.
