This week I am going to discuss this little number I wore in 1975. I made this dress with fabric from Murray's, one of those delightful small town stores that sold clothes, shoes, linens and many other delights, including fabric. I had purchased the pattern somewhere and decided that I wanted to make my dress to the Winter Dance.
The fabric is a knit with a knobby feel. It was rather clingy and felt good on my skin. I made the dress with help from my High School home ec teacher, Cindy Hoover. I remember having some trouble with the sleeves, getting them just right!
I remember being very proud of my creation! I remember thinking I didn't feel like I had on a homemade dress. I can recall thinking I was like a designer wearing her own creation to the ball.
The cameo was my grandmother Holt's. I still have it and wear it. Even though my hair isn't as long as it is in this photo, I still wear it like that (minus the ribbon, but I might start that up again!)
