A Blast from the Past

This is one of three matching dresses made by my mom for me and the next two sisters in line. She used fabric she bought on a vacation to Hawaii (actually sheets, I think). We wore them (LONG ago), and then our cousins did, followed by our littlest sister, and Lauren, then her cousins, and finally Marianna and Becca. Well traveled and well loved...

Thank you for the trip down memory lane. Yes indeed, the dresses were made from a sheet - the only tropical print I found on Oahu at the time. I really wanted to buy my three little redheads muu muus but they were quite expensive. I am so happy that the dresses have been so loved - sort of like the Velveteen Rabbit. :)
Love ya!
