In my New Years decluttering work, I came across these polyester dresses that my Mama made for me when I was about 12 to 14 years old. They ended up at my house after I found them in the attic at her house after she died. I only kept them this long because she made them. To me, when something is handmade for you, that's special.
These dresses were really cute at the time, which was the early 1970s! I remember helping her pick out the fabrics at a small fabric shop near where we lived. Everything in the store was polyester!
But, in the end, I decided to keep only two of the ones I could remember wearing.
