My mom has been doing some cleaning out lately and came across four dresses that my grandma had saved from when she was little. She couldn't have found them at a better time because they are just the right size for Audrey right now.
All four of them are adorable, unfortunately I only got photos of Audrey in one of them. And I am absolutely amazed that this is what little girls wore on a daily basis. I would never have the patience to do all the ironing that these must have required.
I was also amazed at the shape these dresses were in. Decades after being used for two girls they still looked great.
There is just something so great about clothes like these that have a story and history to them. I am pretty certain that my grandma didn't sew these for my mom or her sister, but it does inspire me to continue to make Audrey some special pieces that can be passed down because I know that the sweats and t-shirts she wears normally sure aren't going to stand the test of time.
What about you... do your kids wear clothes that have been used by multiple generations?
